Bacon Cheddar Pull Apart Bread

This cheesy pull-apart bread is full of melted cheddar cheese and smoky bacon bits.

I love pull apart breads. They are so fun to eat, pulling up each small piece of bread one at a time. It’s one of my favorite tv-viewing/game day snacks.


They are pretty easy to prepare too, especially if you already have the bread on hand. I recently got this sourdough round from Boudin SF. Of course you can use whatever bread of your choice. I immediately thought of making a pull-apart bread snack. The cheddar and bacon combination was delicious and simple!

Bacon Cheddar Pull Apart Bread


  • 1 medium-sized round crusty bread
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 tbsp chopped precooked bacon
  •  1/2 tbsp finely chopped parsley or green chives (optional, for garnish)


1. Preheat oven to 375F. Using a bread knife, make checkerboard pattern slices across bread, cutting about 2/3 of the way down into the bread. Grab ends of bread and bend bread a little to loosen the spaces between the slices. Stuff shredded cheese and bacon in.

2. Bake for about 10 minutes until cheese bubbles. If desired, sprinkle herbs on top before eating.
