Sundried tomato & basil cheesy pull apart bread

Sunday, January 20, 2019

Try this delicious sun-dried tomato and basil cheesy pull apart bread. It's delicious and perfect for sharing with friends!

Everywhere I go, I am offered garlic bread. It tastes ok but sometimes the garlic is overwhelming and the aftertaste can make me a bit nauseous. I created this fresh and delicious pull-apart alternative with some of my favourite ingredients, sundried tomatoes, basil and cheese.

The tomato and basil paste soaks into the bread and the flavours really complement each other.

The cheese really is the star of the show. It oozes throughout the bread and the sight of the golden bubbling cheese makes the mouth water. Cheddar is my favourite cheese but the addition of the Brie helps with the stretchy pull-apart experience.   The two cheeses work together very well. Every time I serve this, it is really well received and there is usually a fight for the last piece!

A serving of this really is a slice of cheesy heaven.


  • 1 crusty loaf
  • 150 g Brie
  • 200 mature cheddar
  • 10-12 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 5 tablespoons of the sun-dried tomato oil
  • 10 basil leaves
  • A few grinds of black pepper
