I made this just last week and let me tell you, I was craving it all day yesterday. I eat well enough (as you might imagine) that I don’t get cravings very often. I’m usually satisfying them before they actually happen.

But this bread is so good that, although the original batch was gone, I was really wishing I had more hot and ready to be devoured by the time I got home. Sadly, that wasn’t the case, and I had to whip up a quick grilled cheese sandwich to satisfy my cravings.

How to make the BEST pull apart bread:

  • This recipe starts with a loaf of bread. You can start with any old loaf of bread, but I started with a wonderfully delicious round loaf of Italian bread.  Cut the bread into slices that are about an inch apart, but don’t go all the way through the bottom. You want the loaf to stay whole but give people pieces to grab onto and shove into their mouth.
  • I started by soaking the bread with a freaking good concoction of olive oil, butter, garlic, chipotle, and green onions. Warm the loaf in the oven to really get all that flavor to soak in.
  • Finally, stuff your cheesy pull apart bread with different kinds of cheeses, more green onions, and of course enough bacon pieces to allow at least a few pieces to stick to each bite.

The photo below is what the cheesy chipotle bacon pull apart bread looked like after I took it out of the oven and shoved the first few pieces from the center into my mouth.

Should I have taken a nice photo for you all before I dug in? Perhaps. Do I have self control when it comes to soft and crispy buttery bread smothered in cheesy chipotle with bacon? Nope.

Just trust me on this one: you must make this bread.
