It’s no secret that garlic is my go-to herb (or bulb, depending on your lingo of choice) around here, starring in every dish from pizza and pasta to poultry and pulled pork. But as we all know, garlic’s real reason for existence is for the one and only cheesy garlic bread.
But this is no ordinary garlic bread. Just imagine if Pepperoni Pizza Pull-Apart Bread and Secret Ingredient Cheesy Garlic Bread had a blooming onion-inspired baby. The result would be Cheesy Pull-Apart Garlic Bread made with only four ingredients and requiring only 30 minutes of your time.
This updated take on the classic stars section after section of garlicky sourdough slices clinging together with the aid of not one, but two varieties of melty cheeses. Simply slice, brush, stuff and bake. And then let the culinary tug-of-war begin!

- 1 sourdough boule (or other loaf of firm bread)
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
- Using a serrated knife, cut a crosshatch pattern in the bread by slicing it lengthwise then widthwise without cutting all the way through the bottom crust.
- Melt the butter in a small saucepan or in the microwave then stir in the minced garlic. Brush the garlic butter inside the bread, carefully pulling apart each section so it’s distributed throughout the entire loaf.
- Divide the cheeses evenly throughout the bread by tucking it into each slice. Place the filled bread on a piece of foil and wrap the foil up and around the bread. Bake the bread for 15 minutes then unfold the foil and bake the bread an additional 10 to 15 minutes until it’s crisped slightly.
- Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
