A few weeks back we had Hawaiian Sweet Bread and I had thrown the round loaf in the freezer, for future use. It came in handy the other night when I wanted to have some sorta bread to go with dinner. I took it out and let it thaw, THEN went CRAZY…well, my kinda crazy…… It turned out delicious, a new favorite recipe for sure! Hope you enjoy it too, this would work just as well with the Hawaiian Bread Loaf you can buy at the store!
* Use whatever cheeses and herbs your family likes, let me know what you come up with! Green onions would be good, pepper jack cheese, bacon……lots o’ possibilities!
* Sorry about the “sprinkle” and “dash” type measurements for this recipe, it is the kinda recipe that you just have to use as little or as much as your family likes, more of a “method” recipe….be creative and have fun!
Cheesy Pull Apart Bread
1 loaf of Hawaiian Bread
1/4 c. melted butter
shredded cheese of choice, I used Monterey Jack
Cut your bread lengthwise and widthwise, nearly to the bottom of the loaf ~ be sure to leave the bottom in tack or you will just have a bunch of bread cubes, which would be delicious croutons but not really be a bread loaf per say. Pull the bread apart a bit to make room for the cheesy yumminess.
Drizzle with butter, then with cheese (I used about 1 1/2 c…..) and then sprinkle with garlic, Italian Seasoning and Parmesan. Wrap up in foil, leaving some room in at the top so the cheese does not stick to the top of the foil. Heat in a 350* oven for about 20-25 minutes till heated through and cheese is melted. You may uncover near the end to brown with cheese a bit.
Enjoy, I sure hope you do!
