Imagine a golden-brown loaf, oozing with melted cheese and garlic, creating an irresistible aroma that fills your kitchen with the spirit of the season. Can you picture it? Good – let’s make it!


  • 1 loaf of your favourite bread from the Rabba bakery
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups shredded Tre Stelle Mozzarella
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Prepare the Bread:

  • Carefully using a sharp knife, make diagonal cuts through the bread, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Make sure not to cut through the bottom crust so that the loaf stays intact.
  • Rotate the bread and make additional diagonal cuts, creating a diamond pattern.

Cheese Mixture:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, shredded cheese, minced garlic, chopped parsley, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.

Stuff the Bread:

  • Using a spoon or your hands, carefully open the cuts in the bread and stuff the cheese mixture into the openings, making sure to get it in between the slices.
  • If you have any remaining cheese mixture, you can spread it over the top of the bread.

Wrap in Foil:

Wrap the stuffed bread in aluminum foil, leaving the top exposed.


  • Place the wrapped bread on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bread is crispy on the outside.

Unwrap and Broil (Optional):

  • If you like a crispy top, you can unwrap the bread and broil it for an additional 2-3 minutes until the cheese is golden brown.

Remove the bread from the oven, sprinkle with a bit more fresh parsley if desired. Serve the cheesy pull-apart bread while it’s still warm. It’s perfect for sharing and pulling apart with friends and family.

As you savour each cheesy, pull-apart bite, may the warmth of the holiday season fill your home, and may this delightful recipe become a cherished tradition for creating memories and spreading joy with those you hold dear. Happy holidays and happy baking from Rabba Fine Foods and Tre Stelle Cheese!
