If you are on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter- really any social media, you have seen “Crack Bread“. A loaf of bread cut in a crisscross pattern and then stuffed with cheese and other goodies, drenched in butter and finally baked to a crispy golden, gooey brown. Easy to pull apart and addictive, it is obvious as to why this become an internet sensation. The jury is out as to why people refer to it as crack bread. Is it because of the distinctive cracks that allow this beautiful bread to be stuffed or because it is just as addictive as crack?
I was not immune to this craze. I made Garlic and Cheese Pull Apart Bread and Jalapeno Popper Pull Apart Bread, I even experimented with a crab dip and Mexican version. It was requested so frequently at my house and the star of any meal, no matter how grand the entree, that people would fight over the last pieces.
This was when I decided to make them individual. No more leaning over the table, no feeling guilty taking the last piece and no spending the entire meal passing the tray. My Individual Garlic Cheese Crack Bread is the solution to the problem. I generally make at least two for each person, sometimes even three, depending on the crowd I’m feeding. One thing is for sure, your family is sure to love these cheesy garlic bombs just as much as mine!
