This recipe was first made for a live cooking video series where I was invited as a guest chef. Since the theme of the series was FIFA, I picked this recipe as this is a perfect game night snack/ appetizer to have while watching a game! The recipe is pretty quick and easy to make and it tastes simply divine! The whole loaf of baguette was finished by my kids and hubby in just few minutes, so if you’re planning it for a party better take a bigger loaf, as this bread is going to be the favorite!
Here’s the complete recipe to this super tempting pull apart bread:
French Baguette: 1 (Depends on the number person you need to feed)
Camembert: 1 block
Mozzarella (shredded): 100gms (or more )
Butter: 4 Tbsp ( I’m always generous with butter, if you want you can reduce it to 2tbsp)
Garlic (finely chopped): 4-5 cloves (you can also use garlic powder if you want to avoid bits of garlic in your mouth)
Parsley/ Coriander (finely chopped): few leaves
Salt: as per taste
Pepper: as per taste
Chili flakes: as desired (optional)
Pre- heat the oven at 190 degree centigrade. Take the loaf and make cuts across the bread. Don’t cut till the bottom, just make incision or slots to put our stuffings. take the butter (softened or melted) and add garlic and parsley to it. Add salt and pepper. You can also add chili flakes to add a spiked flavor. Apply the butter mixture in the groves that we cut in the bread.
Take the Camembert block and cut into cubes/ slices and put them in the cuts of the bread. Put shredded mozzarella in the same way. Apply some more butter mixture on the top crust and put it in the oven.
Bake it at 190 degree centigrade for around 5-8 minutes, till the cheese is melted completely and crust is crunchy. Don’t over cook it else the bread will become chewy and cheese will become tight.
Take out from the oven, add some freshly chopped parsley and serve with ketchup or any other dip of your choice!
