Cheesy Bacon-Filled Pull Apart Bread

Samantha, food blogger and founder of FiveHeartHome.com, says that once she spotted these loaves of cheesy goodness on Pinterest, she knew she and the bread "were meant to be."

In creating this ultimate football-watching appetizer, I decided to incorporate some of my personal favorite flavors. And let me tell you ... this bread indeed includes quite a few of my most favorite things to eat in general. Let’s examine the list: bread, butter, bacon, garlic, and cheese. Yup. This bread is heaven-sent ... if heaven is a place where carbs, calories, and cholesterol don’t exist.

Vegetarian Pull-Apart Bread

Vegetarians don't need to miss all the fun. Meatless options abound and include a yummy spinach and artichoke version that incorporates mozzarella and garlic. (Are you drooling yet?) Another "green" twist on this bread is the Jalapeno Popper, put together by TheBakerChick.com. Come to think of it, these breads might be fun on St. Paddy's Day since they're bursting with color.
