Cheesey Mushroom Pull Apart Bread

I'm just going to come out and say this bread is AMAZING. Seriously. If you are looking for ideas for the Superbowl, MAKE THIS BREAD. Actually, you should make it this weekend to test it out and play with what flavors you want to use as a practice run. Then make it again next weekend to share with your friends at the Superbowl.

But be warned, it's quite addictive. In fact, maybe you should plan to bring two to your Superbowl party. It's seriously so gooey from the melted cheese. The butter, green onion, and poppy seed sauce on top really takes this bread to the next level.

When I saw this recipe, I was instantly thinking of other flavors you could stuff into the bread. Anything that works on pizza would be great here. I went with provolone and mushroom this time. I'm sure it would be great with pepperoni and mozzarella, bacon and cheddar, or just plan old cheese. If you guys make this, you have to come back and let me know what flavors you made.

Cheesey Mushroom Pull Apart Bread

Ingredients (serves 4-6)

    For the Mushrooms
    • 12 oz sliced mushrooms
    • 1 Tbsp butter
    • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
    For the Bread
    • 1 unsliced loaf sourdough bread
    • 12 ounces Provolone cheese, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 cup butter, melted
    • 1/2 cup finely diced green onion
    • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds


    For the Mushrooms

    Heat a medium skillet on medium. Add the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the mushrooms. Cook 4-5 minutes until they start to sweat. Add the thyme and continue to cook another 2-3 minutes.

    Set mushrooms aside and allow to cool.

    For the Bread

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Cut the bread lengthwise and widthwise without cutting through the bottom crust. This can be a little tricky going the second way but the bread is very forgiving.

    Place loaf on a foil-lined baking sheet.

    Insert cheese slices between cuts. Pour the mushrooms between the cuts. Use your fingers to push the mushrooms down into the loaf.

    Combine butter, onion, and poppy seeds. Drizzle over bread. Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

    Unwrap the bread and bake 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.

    Omg so awesome! My hubby and I aren't fans of mushrooms but I looked at the original cheesy onion loaf and fell in love. I made it Saturday with colby jack and green onions. It was AMAZING!! Hubby and his best friend stood over it in the kitchen and devoured almost the whole thing. :)

    I just made this and it was AWESOME! I used minced garlic when I sautéed the mushrooms. And I didn't have poppy seeds, but even without it tasted great!

    Ridiculously delicious. We're still talking about it hours later, and my husband just said, "it shouldn't be legal." haha! Definitely not healthy, but oh so delicious! :)

    Made this the other night, sans the poppyseeds. Very good! Honestly, I would make it again but would omit the butter drizzle on the top. It was very moist and even though I love butter, it was a bit greasy. Very good and hubby said we are making it to bring to parties from now on.

    I found this recipe on pinterest and I made it yesterday. It was awesome! I did alter it though. I added two bunches of fresh spinach, that I sauted in olive oil till it shrank down. I squeezed the oil out by placing the spinach between two plates. I also left out the poppy seeds, since my husband and I are not a fan. I used smoked sharp cheddar, combined with smoked pepperjack. Cuz that's what we had in the fridge, and both like. This bread was amazing, pretty easy to make. Our company loved it as well. I give this recipe 5 stars.
