Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Loaf

When I was in high school I worked at Chuck E. Cheese... and it was the BEST job ever! I loved it!! I've always loved kids though so I'm sure that was the main reason I enjoyed it so much. But I also made some life-long friends working there too. I have such fond memories of hanging out with friends, eating incorrectly ordered pizza and cheese bread... definitely my favorite high school memories! I loved when we took Rohrl there for the first time when he was almost 2 and watching his eyes light up with all the rides and the characters on stage. He did get a little freaked out when Chuck E. got close to him. One thing made me sad though...the food was not as good as I had remembered it being. Granted when you're 15 all pizza tastes the same, but I was really hoping to love the pizza and cheesy bread like I did 10 years ago. The cheese bread was my absolute favorite thing to eat in high school! I could eat a whole order by myself! I was lucky working kept me on my feet or I would've been the size of an elephant!! When I tried this cheese bread I found from Lauren's Latest I was hoping it would taste good but I was blown away when it tasted JUST like my beloved Chuck E. Cheese cheese bread! I probably could've ate the whole loaf by myself again... well maybe not; but the hubby and kids loved it too! It is so easy to make and definitely something I will be making again and again.



Ingredients:

1 cup warm water
1 packet active dry yeast 
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour
1/2 cup garlic butter (I mixed 2 teaspoons minced garlic and 1 teaspoon garlic powder with 1/2 stick of melted butter)
1 cup cheese (the original recipe calls for sharp cheddar slices but I used shredded three cheese blend and it tasted great!)

Directions:

In a large bowl combine water, honey and yeast and let sit for 5 minutes.

Add salt and then flour 1 cup at a time. Once all 3 cups are added knead dough for 5 minutes. When done dough should be smooth and not stick to your hands.

Grease the bowl and dough and cover with a damp towel. Let rise for 1 hour.





Punch dough a few times and then cut into two equal pieces.

Grease a cookie sheet and make two long loaves. I twisted mine and it helped it hold shape. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes.




Preheat oven to 350°

Remove plastic wrap and bake for 20 minutes.



Brush the garlic butter on loaves and cook for 5-7 more minutes or until bread turns golden brown.



Let cool then cut 1 in slats about 3/4 of the way through the loaves and brush garlic butter in between. Then stuff slats with cheese. Cook for another 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.





Mine aren't the prettiest but they sure do taste amazing!! Great to make for parties, snacks or to go with spaghetti!

I used to be HORRIBLE at cooking and baking... Literally I have burnt water that'w how scatter brained I am. But I have gotten better with age and motherhood lol

I'm still new to the blogging world and don't have a RSS set up yet. I am working on getting my own domain set up here in the next few weeks with all the add-ons for everything.

I'm looking forward to your Sunday spa recipes :)
