Cheddar Jalapeno Bacon Pull Apart Bread

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.
