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!

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

    Hmm thanks karlynn! I might have to do a half n half loaf lol. Never thought about it but my Mr picky doesn’t like mustard either lol

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

    Cracker barrel has some great sliced cheese now in a few varieties! The kids and I r trying this tomorrow for sure!

  5. The Kitchen Magpie Reply

    It’s not cheese slices, I should re-word that lol. It’s slices of cheese..real cheese. Cheese slices would be gross!

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