2 Cheeses, Garlic and Onion Pull-Apart Bread

2 Cheeses, Garlic and Onion Pull-Apart Bread ~ Gooey, double cheese with Garlic and Spring Onions makes this Pull-apart Bread a winner every time ! {the secret is in the Butter mixture!}
I had a Pull-Apart bread on my menu the other week, and had Mozzarella cheese on the list when we had gone shopping, but at the store my eye caught some Cream Cheese slices, yes, slices.. I have never seen them before, and changed my mind there and then to use these new {to me!} slices instead of Mozzarella in this 2 Cheeses, Garlic and Onion Pull-Apart Bread.

The Cream Cheese slices did not melt much, therefore not as gooey as Mozzarella would have been, but it definitely had a different taste and texture as well.

The Cream Cheese slices between the criss-crosses, gave the bread a bit more of a chewiness, which actually made a great difference to the usual Pull-Apart bread I make, using the combination of Mozzarella and Cheddar.

Roy liked the Cream Cheese much more than when I use Mozzarella - he is not a huge fan of Mozzarella, unless it's on a pizza !

I have to mention, though, that no matter which of the two cheeses you use, the secret in this scrumptious Pull-Apart Bread, is in the Butter mixture ! You can substitute the Herb Infused Oil with another flavor easily, especially if you are a huge garlic lover, then use a Garlic Infused Oil, as long as all the flavors will play nicely together.

The photos are somewhat miserable as we had heavy rain on that day, and I had to take photos indoors, which I absolutely hate. I am still in the very early learning process of my new camera and to be honest, the tripod and me,,, well, I do not think we will be getting along all that well.

2 Cheeses, Garlic and Onion Pull-Apart Bread


1 Oval French Loaf
1/4 cup Butter, melted
1/4 cup Herb Infused Avocado Oil  {Or Olive Oil}
1/2 t Salt
3 t Fresh Garlic, minced
1 TB Dijon Mustard
3/4 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
6 - 8 Slices Cream Cheese, plain  {or Mozzarella}
2 - 3 Spring Onions, chopped


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - loosely place a double layer of aluminum foil {size of a baking sheet} on a baking sheet.
2.) Make criss-cross slits in the Loaf without slicing all the way through.
3.) Combine the Butter, Oil, Salt, Garlic and Mustard in a small bowl - pour into the slits made in the bread.
4.) Stuff all the openings with the two Cheeses and the Spring Onions - place loaf on the prepared baking sheet and fold over the aluminum foil to cover the loaf - bake 15 minutes, remove and open the top of the aluminum foil - bake a further 10 minutes or until the Cheese has melted.

Serve immediately.

  1. This looks terrific!! Are you slicing the cream cheese or can you buy it already sliced? I've never seen it sliced...

    1. Seana, the Cream Cheese is already sliced {and packaged separately} - like the cheese you get for burgers. Each slice is about 4 inch square by around 3mm thick - I did slice each one in half to fit into the criss-crosses of the bread. {the slices are not soft as normal cream cheese, but more like thinly sliced Gouda} -- replying here as your e-mail is not attached to your comment :-)

  2. OMGeeeeeeee!! I would eat that entire loaf by myself - seriously! This looks absolutely amazing to me! :)

    Btw, tripods are over-rated!! LOL They just get in the way!
