It’s a lazy lazy Sunday. The skies have opened up and it’s that kind of day where u want some comfort food without too much effort.

A friend had dropped in for dinner and since I was making lasagna asked her to get some bread to go with it. But we never landed eating it as the lasagna was quite filling. The idea of a cheesy pull apart popped in my head and I decided to keep the bread in the fridge for a rainy day.

It’s so easy. No brainier absolutely. And so delicious and fattening ??, though it’s better to opt for a harder denser bread. This one was a butter bread so quite soft and flaky.

If there’s rain and bread to go with it then there should be some piping hot soup. Strangely I never posted my spinach soup on the blog and I decided to make it along with the pull apart.

Isn’t this an awesome Sunday meal. ?


1 round bread loaf (dense if avl)

10 – 12 Britannia Cheezza sticks cut to 1″ thickness and about 2″ in length. (pizza or mozzarella cheese)

2-3 Chopped Chicken salami slices or bacon strips (optional)

1/2 cup Bagels Chilli garlic butter (or make your own by mixing garlic, room temp butter and salt and chilli flakes)

2 tsp chopped spring onions

Aluminium foil


  1. Preheat oven to 180C
  2. Make diagonal cross slices in the bread being careful not to go right to the bottom as we need the base to hold the bread together.
  3. Apply butter generously in all the cross sections, ensuring all the slits are well coated.
  4. At each cross, insert a mozzarella stick and ensure that there is cheese at equal intervals.
  5. Put the chopped salami/bacon (optional) in the rest of the gaps.
  6. Wrap the bread in aluminium foil ensuring that the top can be opened at a later stage.
  7. Put it in the oven with bottom and top rod on and bake for 20 mins.
  8. Open the top foil and brush the bread with more butter and sprinkle spring onions.
  9. Put it back in the oven with top rod only for 5-10 minutes till u get a golden brown crust
  10. Serve hot.
