I admit … I’m a bread person. There’s nothing I love more than a warm slice of bread! Heaven sent, I tell ya!

Now that fall is here I find myself in the kitchen WAY more. This is not a good thing. Although my husband tells me it is. ;) One of our favorite Italian restaurants serves a cheesey pesto bread that is to die for! I tried to re-create this delicious recipe at home and it turned out great! This is the perfect recipe for a snack or appetizer!

Mouthwatering cheesy pesto bread


  • 1 sourdough loaf of bread
  • 1/2 cup basil pesto found near dairy
  • 1 cup mozerella cheese grated
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan grated
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice bread vertically and then again horizontally so that you have one inch squares.
  3. Spread basil in between the sliced bread.
  4. Combine cheese and seasoning in a medium sized bowl. Place cheese in between each slice.
  5. Cover bread with foil and bake on a lined sheet for 8-10 minutes.

    Bread too is my not-so-good-for-you food weakness. I just ate lunch (which involved bread) and this still made my tummy grumble! I will be trying this very soon!

    Just made this for dinner tonight, and it WILL be a repeat. I love pesto and pull-apart breads. Great idea to mix the two together.

    My loaf (and by that I mean my dinner!) just came out of the oven! It’s not pretty, but I it taste great! A little red sauce to dip it in, and I am all set to pig out on some carbs! Didn’t expect the process to be so messy, but I’ll happily make a mess for some yummy food!
