Cheeseboard pull apart bread

Christmas Tree Cheeseboard Pull Apart Bread

What you need


  • A cheeseboard of your choice - we used 200g red leicester, 1 camembert, 200g gruyere, 200g cheddar
  • 500g fresh bread dough
  • 200g garlic butter
  • Handful chopped parsley

Nothing says Christmas like a cheeseboard. Why not surprise your guests at your annual Yuletide knees up and emerge from your kitchen triumphantly holding what looks like a tree made of bread, but is actually a tree made out of bread cunningly stuffed with all your favourite cheeses? What is this festive miracle, they will cry.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F,
  2. Take each block of cheese and cut into equal sized squares.
  3. Take a small handful of the dough and press into a small disk. Place the cheese in the middle and bring up the sides to seal in, then repeat with the rest of the cheeses and dough.
  4. Arrange your dough balls in a christmas tree shape on a lined large baking tray.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, until the bread is golden and cooked through.
  6. Serve brushed with garlic butter and sprinkled with fresh parsley.
