Cheesy Pull Apart Pesto Bread |

Cheesy Pesto Pull Apart Bread


Units Scale
  • 1 loaf French or Italian bread
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup prepared basil pesto
  • 1 1/2 cups 3-cheese blend (mozzarella, parmesan and asiago)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Make 1″ diagonal cuts through the bread, using a serrated knife, leaving the bottom crust intact. Turn the bread and make diagonal cuts in the opposite direction, creating a crosshatch pattern.
  3. Place the bread on a large sheet of foil. You want it large enough to wrap the bread in.
  4. Pour the melted butter into the cuts of the bread. Then, use a spoon to drip the pesto into the cuts of the bread.
  5. Finally, stuff the shredded cheese into the cuts of the bread.
  6. Wrap the bread in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Place in the oven to bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
  7. Then, open the foil to expose the top of the bread and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
