Cheese and Garlic Crack Bread (Pull Apart Bread)



1 crusty loaf, preferably sourdough or Vienna

200 gm  shredded Mozzarella cheese (or other melting cheese)


Garlic Butter

100g  unsalted butter, softened

2 large garlic cloves, minced

¾ tsp salt

1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped




Preheat the oven to 180C

Combine butter, garlic and salt in a heatproof bowl and melt in the microwave. Stir through parsley.

Cut the bread on a diagonal into 2cm/1″ diamonds but do not cut all the way through the bread .

Use your fingers or a knife to pry open each crack and drizzle in a teaspoon of butter and stuff in a pinch of cheese. Wrap with foil and bake for 15minutes until the cheese has mostly melted, then unwrap and bake for 5 minutes more to make the bread nice and crusty.

Serve immediately.
