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. I’ve made Pizza Pull Apart Bread, too, which is a twist on pizza and so I was excited to try this bacon cheddar pull apart bread.

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!

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

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium-sized  round crusty bread
