Garlic bread is the classic side dish or appetizer for spaghetti or soup, a delicious medley of bread, savory garlic and melted butter. This Italian staple is the perfect comfort food as well, providing the satisfaction and happiness that only carbs and cheese can. When you're craving a piece of warm, cheesy garlic bread but lacking the motivation to make it yourself, pull-apart garlic bread is the perfect solution.

Pillsbury is famous for their easy-to-make baked goods, from their biscuits to their crescent rolls to their cookie dough. They also make a delectable pull-apart garlic bread and pull-apart monkey bread, both of which are quick and simple to prepare.

Pillsbury Pull-Apart Kits

To make garlic bread from scratch, you need to make bread dough with the dough hook on your stand mixer, then prepare minced garlic and make a garlic butter mixture as the dough rises. If you don't feel like following a garlic bread recipe, Pillsbury has your back with these easy bread kits.

This pull-apart kit includes pre-cut dough and a sauce pouch, and all you need to add is 3/4 cup shredded cheese and 2 tablespoons butter. To prep, simply put butter in the microwave and preheat your oven! Then, after about 20 minutes depending on your pan, you'll have warm, crusty, cheesy garlic bread for Italian night.

You can use mozzarella cheese or a bag of mixed cheese, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top really adds to the flavor of this buttery, cheesy pull-apart bread. For extra Italian flavor, add in a drizzle of olive oil, a teaspoon garlic powder and a tablespoon of Italian seasoning.

As for the monkey bread, this kit is ideal for dessert bread, to enjoy after dinner or as a snack. This also has essentially no prep time, and comes with the bread dough and sauce. All you need is melted butter!

How to Make Pull-Apart Garlic Bread

To make this tasty bread, heat the oven to 375 degrees F and grease the loaf pan.

Then, stir together the melted butter and the sauce in your pan.

Unroll the dough and separate into squares using the lines, pulling bread apart until you have a number of small bread dough squares.

Add bread pieces into the pan and stir together with the sauce-butter mixture until fully coated with butter and sauce. Mix in the shredded cheese, and stir until all ingredients are fully combined.

Bake your loaf of bread until the top is crispy and golden brown and the middle is cooked all the way through, following the directions on the box. Immediately remove bread from the pan and allow to cool until warm before serving. Enjoy your home-cooked garlic cheese bread!
