This one was sent in by Jenny in New South Wales, who loves cooking this one whilst out camping...or glamping in her motorhome.
She notes this recipe has directions for making the pull apart bread in a caravan/motorhome oven, but notes you call also do this over a hot campfire if you wrap it in foil and check on it regularly (just don't put it too close), because you don't want to burn it.....like I did when I was camping at Mount Crawford Forest lol.
An unsliced round or oblong crusty bread loaf, such as sourdough, Vienna or Pane di Casa.
1 cup (or more) grated/shredded melting cheese – such as a mix of mozzarella, cheddar and Parmesan. Or try mozzarella, Gruyere or provolone.
Garlic Butter Mix:
½ to 1 cup (250g) butter – melted (you may need more you may need less, depending on the size of the bread loaf).
2-3 cloves of garlic – crushed (or use 2-3 tablespoons tube/jar minced garlic), more or less to taste.
1 tablespoon of fresh parsley – finely chopped
Salt and pepper (to taste)
1. Preheat your camp oven to hot, or your home oven to 200°C or 180°C (fan-force).
2. Using a large, sharp, serrated bread knife, cut the bread into a criss-cross (diamond) pattern, about 3-4cm wide, but don’t cut all the way through to the bottom of the bread.
4. Place the bread on a large sheet of foil, enough to wrap entirely.
5. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter with the other garlic butter mix ingredients.
Using your fingers or a knife, pry open the cracks in the bread and evenly drizzle the melted garlic butter mix in the cracks.
6. Sprinkle or spoon the grated cheese into the cracks.
7. Cover and enclose the bread with foil.
8. Make sure you have a trivet at the bottom of your camp oven. Place the foil-wrapped-bread on the trivet and cover and bake as detailed – coals top and bottom.
9. Serve straight away.
