hahah well I am clearly not helpful in the whole New Year's Resolutions for eating healthy thing. This is SO good though. Super soft buttery garlic bread covered in cheese? It's worth it.
Cheesy Garlic Pull-Apart Bread
from Food Wanderings in Asia
- 1 Italian loaf
- 1 stick (8 Tbsp) butter
- 1/8 cup olive oil
- Approx 3 tsp. minced onion
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
- Approx 3 tsp. chopped parsley (I just grabbed a handful and chopped it up)
- About 12 oz grated cheddar/monterey jack cheese blend (we used about 3/4 of the bag)
Slice the bread in an X shape so that it makes cubes you could pull apart. Do NOT cut all the way down-you want the bread to be able to be pulled apart but intact until you pull it.
Stuff at least half the cheese into the cracks in the bread. Melt the butter in a bowl. Combine butter with olive oil, onion, garlic, mustard, and parsley. Stir and pour over the bread. Push it down into the cracks with a spoon if you can. Sprinkle more cheese on top.
Wrap the loaf in foil. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Take off the top, bake for about 5 more minutes (until cheese is sufficiently melty) and EAT. YUM.
