Ooey Gooey Nacho Cheesy Cheddar Pull Apart Bread with sausage and jalapeños! This appetizer is the ultimate party food!
If you ever go on Pinterest you’ll find lots of popular recipes that make you wanna dive into the screen tongue first (heehee). Just look at my boards! They’re full of mouthwatering dishes. Pinterest is where I find lots of the latest and greatest food trends.
I think everything made with Nutella is still going strong. Although I have yet to jump on that bandwagon. I
first tasted the hazelnut/chocolate spread when we lived in Germany (over ten years ago!), and to me it was tasty, but not so much that I want it in everything or in much of anything!
I know, so not hip. Sorry Nutella lovers!
But cheese and bread! Now that’s a classic combination and the pull apart bread that has been rampant in the foodie pinning world takes it up a few notches with the amazing presentation, right?!
Well, you gotta have the right occasion to serve oooey gooey foods! I had the perfect opportunity to make this appetizer when we went to a surprise birthday party!
Lot’s of laughing, chatting, drinking and munching. Perfect party food right here!
Of course I had to add my own twist. I used my homemade nacho cheese sauce and added Italian sausage and diced jalapeños. I also served it two different ways. Instead of one large loaf of bread I used two mini loafs. The first mini loaf I scored into pull apart pieces and spooned the cheese through the crevices. The second boule I used as a bowl and served it with diced up bread for dipping.
There are so many other variations that you can try too. How about adding BACON!
Cheesy Cheddar Pull Apart Bread
Homemade cheese sauce baked between layers of a bread bowl. This is the ultimate party food for a crowd!
- 1 large or two mini sourdough boules
- 1/2 pound Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
- 2 jalapeños, diced (seeds left in will add more heat)
- Nacho Cheese Sauce
Make Nacho Cheese sauce
Stir in cooked sausage and diced jalapeños and keep on simmer. Stir often.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Score the bread in 1/2 inch slices and keep the bottom the of bread bowl intact. Fan open the cut bread, and place small pieces of foil in the crevices to help keep the soft bread exposed. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. (drying out the bread forms a slight crust so the cheese sauce doesn't make the bread soggy too quickly).
Remove from oven carefully remove the foil. Spoon cheese sauce in the crevices (you'll need some help with this). Serve right away.

holy moly! I need this in my life like yesterday! I love that you used nacho cheese and added sausage and jalapeños. I just want to dip my face into the bread bowl!
Just look at that bread bursting with cheesy goodness! That bread is calling my name!
It’s hard to believe but I have never made a pull apart bread. It is on my list of must makes and yours has pushed me over the edge. Headed to the store for the bread tomorrow as my husband would love this for his Father’s Day dinner.

So, I think I just drooled on my keyboard a little – thanks for that, lol! 😉 This looks amazing! I really do have to try my hand at one of these cheesy pull-apart breads I keep seeing everywhere. This one definitely looks like a good place to start!
Oh man! This is calling my name, an absolute home run for a fun appetizer for a party.
