How to Make Pull Apart Garlic Bread
Preheat the grill to 350 F.
In a small bowl combine the butter, salt and garlic. Melt in microwave. Stir in parsley.
Cut the sourdough bread on a diaganol into 1 inch diamonds. Do not cut all the way through the bread, similar to a french stick for garlic bread.
Pry each crack open with your fingers and drizzle in butter, then stuff with cheese.
Wrap with foil and place on grill for 15 minutes, or until cheese is mostly melted. Unwrap the top and grill for five more minutes to make the bread crusty on top.
Tips for Making Pull Apart Garlic Bread
- Use a “crusty” bread like Sourdough or Vienna bread. It’s holds together better when you pull off pieces.
- Make sure to stuff the cheese and butter throughout the entire loaf of bread.
- Cut bread at a diagonally, but not all the way through the bread.
- Mix things up by adding bacon, pepperoni, ranch dressing, chili etc.!
- Makes a great side dish, pair with a salad and grilled meat or as an appetizer.
- Don’t over look the bottom! It’s the best part. Think butter and cheese dropping all the way down to the bottom plus it’s nice and crispy!
I love that you can grill a side dish with your main dish on the grill! Throw some veggies in a packet and you have an entire meal on your grill. No need to warm up that kitchen or make a mess.
That’s really why I love grilling. Less mess in my kitchen!

Usually they never finish off four pieces, but never say never. They can do it if their minds are set. Did I mention they are five and three years old? That’s right!
