Cheddar Jalapeno Pull Apart Bread: Warm crispy bread studded with smoky bacon, gooey cheese, and spicy jalapenos. The perfect party appetizer.
Hi my name is Krystle, and I LOVE bread! Whether we are talking sandwiches, breadsticks, or even flatbread, I can never get enough carbs.
I’ve seen several pull apart bread recipes floating around Pinterest. They look really complex, but it couldn’t be easier as long as you have a good sharp knife.
I stuffed mine with the perfect combination of salt, smoke, and spice!
It would make an easy party appetizer.
Pull Apart Bread with a Cheesy, Smoky Twist
- 2 oval or 1 large square loaf of Sourdough Bread
- 3 cups finely shredded Cheddar and/or Jack Cheese
- ¼ cup Jalapeno slices
- ¼ cup Crispy Bacon(Or Vegetarian Bacon), Chopped
- ½ cup Butter
- 1 tbsp Minced Garlic
- ½ tsp Cumin
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- Use a serrated knife to slice each loaf into 2" slices. However, do NOT cut all the way through.
- Use the serrated knife to slice in the opposite direction.
- Line a flat fan with aluminum foil. Spray with non stick cooking spray. Place sliced loaf on top of foil and stuff with cheese.
- Sprinkle jalapenos and bacon over the top of the bread.
- Melt butter. Stir in garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper.
- Brush bread with butter using a pastry brush. No pastry brush? No problem? Just drizzle using a spoon.
- Cover loaf with an additional piece of foil.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve with spicy cheese dip if desired.
