Cheesy pull apart bread appetizer is a great way to start a meal or any party. The sourdough bread, butter, onions and cheese are amazing together.

I have to admit that we love pulling out the pieces of buttery, cheesy bread almost as much as we love eating them. But don’t underestimate the uncut base of the bread at the bottom because that is where a lot of the butter and cheese end up. Some of my family members really wait for the top to be eaten so they can get to that crispy bottom.

The only problem with this cheesy pull apart bread appetizer is that you just might have to arm wrestle your family for the last piece. It is truly a big hit and a favorite of all.
