How is everyone enjoying their winter?  I feel like it’s been cold, dreary, and rainy the entire month here in North Carolina.  Usually January is one of our quiet months, but this January we have been really busy.  All three of my kids are playing basketball so it has us running in three different directions with practice and/or games almost every night.

I usually make a menu every week so we aren’t having to run out to fast food.  I look at my calendar and see what’s going on and see how much time I have to make food every night.  Sometimes I make two meals on slow nights because I know we’ll busy the next night, something in the slow cooker and assembling a casserole dish isn’t that unusual for my house.

I also like to keep some easy meals on hand for when we have these busy nights.  I usually have a few like spaghetti, chicken tenders, and soups on standby and always in my pantry.   January is National Soup Month and we’ve been having loads of soup this January.  It’s so good on these cold nights and I love it for leftovers the next day.

Easy Garlic and Herb Pull Apart Cheese Bread

We love garlic bread with soup and who doesn’t like cheesy bread so we just combined the two and made this AWESOME bread! My kids can even make it for me.  I do the cutting and my daughter, who’s eight, does all the stuffing.

 It’s hard to mess this up!  We made it with Idahoan Steakhouse Loaded Potato Soup.  This is one of our favorite meals and I can have this on the table in under 30 minutes.

Ingredients to make Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread

  • French bread loaf
  • Butter– Melted butter isn’t necessary here, so that will save you a step.
  • Garlic
  • Mozzarella and cheddar cheese – I use the kind that has cream cheese in it for better melting.
  • Italian seasonings

How to make Easy Garlic, Herb and Cheese Pull Apart Bread

Make 3 long cuts on the bread lengthwise. Turn bread and make sliced about an 1 inch apart widthwise until all the bread is cubed and place the loaf on the baking sheet. Do not slice all the way through. You are just making slits.

Slice butter into thin pieces and insert into cuts. Add garlic and Italian seasoning. Make sure to spread out all seasonings down in the little cracks.

Stuff ALL shredded cheese into slits.

Bake for until cheese is melted.

While the bread is cooking, just heat up the soup on the stove and enjoy this delicious meal.  Make sure to keep some in your pantry so you’ll have it ready when you need a quick meal.
