Garlic, Rosemary, and Cheese Pull-Apart Bread

Garlic, Rosemary, and Cheese Pull-Apart Bread

Happy Sunday friends! What better way to end the weekend than with a loaf of delicious pull-apart bread?

You might remember the cinnamon sugar pull apart bread I made a couple months ago. This recipe is similar but savory! I used a mix of cheddar, jack, and parmesan cheese for this recipe, but feel free to use your favorite cheese. This recipe is great because you can layer it with whatever you want. I've made it with marinara sauce, cheese, and pepperoni for a pizza pull apart bread even a buffalo and chicken combination.

This bread is best served right out of the oven and is great for get togethers. It's always satisfying to pull apart a loaf of buttery, cheesy bread on the dinner table. It's sure to please everyone!



  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water, 110 degrees F
  • 1/3 cup warn whole milk, 110 degrees F
  • 1 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup cup butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp chopped rosemary
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour


  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup jack cheese
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp dried basil


  1. In a stand mixer bowl, mix yeast, 1/2 tablespoon of sugar, yeast, milk, and water. Stir and set aside for 10 minutes to allow yeast to activate. 

  2. Whisk in the rest of the sugar, salt, eggs, melted butter, and rosemary.

  3. With your hook attachment, mix in flour 1/2 cup at a time. Mix on medium speed for 5-7 minutes.

  4. Place the dough in a large greased bowl, and cover it with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for an hour and a half, or until doubled in size.

  5. Mix together melted butter and garlic, and set aside. Mix together your cheese and dried basil in a separate bowl and set aside.

  6. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F

  7. Push down the dough, and pour it out on a lightly floured surface.

  8. Roll dough out to about 12"x20" and spread garlic butter mixture onto the dough.  Sprinkle evenly with the cheese mixture.

  9. Cut dough into 6 strips vertically with a pizza cutter and then cut into 4 more strips horizontally, so you have 24 squares. 

  10. Grease a 9"x5" loaf pan and stack strips into pan. Loosely cover your dough with a plastic wrap and let dough rise for another 30 minutes.  

  11. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.  If your loaf starts getting too brown before the 30 minutes are up, place a piece of foil over the top of the loaf to keep it from getting any darker. Let cool slightly before removing from the pan. Serve warm and enjoy!
