Bacon & Cheese Pull Apart Loaf

Bacon & Cheese Pull Apart Loaf from @kitchenmagpie

An easy but delicious pull-apart loaf while camping has been on my list to make for while now and I finally got around to it this last time camping. While I did make it camping, this is definitely something that you can make at home in the oven or, if you don’t want to heat up your house, on your BBQ.

It’s so easy to make, yet so flipping delicious. I mean, come on, white bread carbs, cheese and bacon?

I just giggled.

It was so…freaking…good.

To be clear, we ate chicken breast with this and veggies, to balance the fact that this is a crazy decadent bread. I just didn’t take pictures of it.

Really, it happened, I swear. I didn’t eat half a loaf for supper…even though I might have been sorely tempted.

This is definitely something you need to save in your back pocket when you are looking for a quick, easy and crowd pleasin’ recipe. A BBQ or a dinner with friends, this is definitely a winner!

A few ideas I had with this…

  • Mix in 1-2 tsp garlic powder into the butter. Oooo yah, baby. Garlic bread!
  • Leave out the bacon and add in some green onions for a fabulous vegetarian version. Plus garlic.
  • Make sure that you put ingredients in each slice. That way, it’s a super-duper, fully saturated loaf that doesn’t have any “plain” areas. You know what I mean. Those areas that didn’t get any filling and just make you sad. Those areas.
  • Use your imagination!

The very best part of this is that you can do it on the BBQ at home and not heat up your house. Well, and that there is bacon.

Bacon for the win!

So, what would you put in this loaf?

Thanks for stopping in everyone! Love you more than chocolate AND bacon!

Whether you do this in the oven or over a campfire, this easy and amazing bacon and cheese pull apart loaf is the perfect side for your dinner!


  • 1 inches loaf Italian bread 10 to 12
  • 5-6 tablespoons butter or margarine softened
  • 12 pieces large of cheese (marble was great old cheddar would be delicious!)
  • 12 slices of cooked bacon
  • 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard optional


  1. Pre-heat your BBQ, grill or oven to 375. (you can also do this on the campfire!)
  2. Get a large rectangle of tinfoil ready.
  3. Without cutting all the way through, cut the loaf of bread into 12 equal slices, cutting to within 1/4 inch of bottom.
  4. Butter each slice in the bread ( and add mustard if wanted)
  5. Tuck a piece of cheese and a piece of bacon into each slice. (you want more cheese? Go ahead!)
  6. Place the loaf on the center of foil. Seal the edges, making sure to allow space for heat circulation and expansion.
  7. Place foil-wrapped loaf on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and loaf is hot.
  8. To serve, open the packet carefully to allow steam to escape first, then proceed to serve.

    Looks amazing. Sans bacon for this vegetarian of course. Maybe sun dried tomatoes instead…

    For kids I might leave the mustard out, I did because the Rose is SO picky! However I would love this with the mustard.

    Looks really good! Could it work using shredded cheese instead of cheese slices? I have an aversion to plastic cheese :/
