Garlic and brie pull apart bread
You're looking for an appetizer or warm starter to serve your family and friends ? Look no more, I got you covered ! Long gone are the days where you'd spend an hour spreading cheese on a million crackers, now we stuff the cheese directly inside the bread and make a delicious garlic and brie pull apart bread.
It's a crowd friendly dish, quick to make and that is better eaten warm. You can stuff the bread before hand and juste bake it once you're ready to eat.
You can obviously put different cheeses in there, add some prosciutto or whatever you'd like. The garlic butter prevents the bread from drying while the cheese is melting in the oven.
To get the cuts in the bread, I just use a serrated break knife. The key point is to not go too far so the bread holds its shape and the cheese won't ooze out from the bottom.
Now you're ready to make the best pull apart bread !
Garlic and brie pull apart bread (serves 4-5) :
- 1 round loaf of bread
- 200 g brie
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2 parsley bunch
- 40 g butter
- Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven at 180°C/350°F.
Cut the bread in little square without cutting all the way through so they're still attached together at the base.
Melt the butter in a sauce pan, add the grated garlic and minced parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
Slice the brie in thin slices.
Brush the inside of the bread with the garlic butter. Spread it all over the bread.
Add brie slices in the cut you've made.
Bake on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper for 10 to 15 minutes. The brie must be melted.
Serve warm !
