How to make Cheese Pull Apart Bread
- Place 16 frozen rolls on a plate or cookie sheet and allow to sit at room temperature for 45 minutes. I use the Rhodes variety of frozen rolls.
- Cut each roll in half with a clean pair of scissors once they have begun to thaw. Do not let them get totally thawed or they will be hard to cut.
- Mix together melted butter, seasonings 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese.
- Pour over cut rolls and stir to totally coat dough in mixture
- Place sliced dough into the bottom of a nine inch springform pan.
- Allow the dough to sit at room temperature and rise until doubled. It will take about 1 and 1/2 hours.
- Place the pan on a cookie sheet before putting it in the oven or cover the bottom of the pan with foil in case the butter leaks out of the spring form pan.
- Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 20-25 minutes. Then cover with foil and then bake for another 10 minutes or until center is baked through.
- Cool in the pan for 5 minute and then remove the outside of the pan and enjoy! It’s warm, delicious and full of cheesy garlic goodness.
Tips from leigh Anne
- If you don’t have a springform pan with a removable bottom, you can use a tube pan or a bundt pan. Just be sure to cool the bread long enough so that it pulls away from the sides of the pan for easier removal. Baking time will need to be adjusted.
Frequently Asked Questions
You can use homemade dough if you prefer, just make your balls of dough about the size of a golf ball. You can freeze them first and follow the directions as written or if you use the dough right after you make it, the rise time will only be 40 minutes or so.
If you are lucky enough to have leftovers you can reheat in the oven or microwave and enjoy them the next day!
