Are you planning on feeding a group an Italian meal? Maybe a lasagna, salad and some garlic bread. This is perfect for that. Pull apart breads are always fun. Normally I use a round sour dough but I wanted to try using a French bread for this recipe. It was soft on the inside and crusty on the out. Perfect for any Italian meal.
Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread
1 French bread
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp parsley
1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Cross hatch cut the French bread in generous 1" slices. Cut down, but not completely through to the bottom. Stop about 1/4" before you hit bottom. Place the bread on a large sheet of aluminum foil and draw up the sides around the bread. In a small pan, melt the butter and stir in the garlic powder and parsley. Pour evenly over the bread, trying to hit every square. Cover the bread with another piece of aluminum foil, place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes in a 350°.
