I’ve seen these floating about looking all cheesy and delicious, so I finally decided to have a go at making some pull apart bread, making my own little tweaks. This stuff, is the absolute bomb – as long as you’re a cheese lover that is! Which I most definitely am.
So, i’m going to stop rambling and just get straight on with showing you how to make a mouth watering, melted cheese pull apart bloomer.
Here’s what you’ll need.
- 1 uncut loaf, a bloomer or something similar.
- 1 Mozzerella ball.
- 250g cheddar cheese, at least. Add more if you want more.
- 50g butter
- 2 garlic bulbs, peeled.
And here’s what you need to do.
First preheat your oven to 180.
Now slice diagonally across your bloomer, taking care not to slice right through the bread. Repeat again, cutting diagonally in the other direction. It’ll be a little harder to slice this way, so be gentle.
Next, popping your bread to the side, place your butter and garlic bulbs in a saucepan, placing it on a low heat until the butter has melted and the garlic bulbs start to turn golden, this will give the best garlic flavouring.
Time to prep your cheese, you can either grate, slice or just roughly chop. I’ve chopped the mozzarella and grated the cheddar.
Finally we can put it all together. First, spoon out some of the butter, drizzling it into the gaps.
Now, stuff a mixture of your two cheeses into the gaps, making sure all of the spaces have been filled. Don’t be shy with the cheese here, the more the merrier.
Next, wrap your loaf up in tinfoil and place it into the oven, middle shelf for about 10-15 minutes.
Once your time is up, take the bloomer out, unwrap, revel in those delicious aromas and try not to scoff it all before you’ve shown off your amazing bake.
The double cheese pull apart bread can be served on its own (Friday night treat with a glass or three of wine) or if you really have to share, paired with a rich and tangy tomato soup like I have.
