PINEAPPLE AND HAM CHEESY PULL APART BREAD is the most simple appetizer recipe! It’s great for game day and a crowd favorite!
Cheesy Pull apart breads have been everywhere online this last year! We have a few like our Spinach Artichoke Pull Apart Bread and our Pizza Pull Apart Bread and there’s good reason for it! You’re combining cheese and bread with so many other amazing toppings!!! It will ALWAYS be a hit!!! So when I was thinking of a snack for my guys after school the other day I thought CHEESY PULL APART BREAD! More specifically Pineapple and Ham Cheesy Pull Apart Bread!
I had extra ingredients leftover from our pizza night so I used them to make this pull-apart bread! I usually make it after Easter too when I have leftover baked ham with brown sugar glaze to use up. I like to make sure that I’m cutting the bread into about 1-inch squares. That way there is more bread to pull but you want to be sure that it’s not too small and it tears too easily before you get a good pull. I like the thick-cut bacon in this recipe because it becomes more of a substantial ingredient rather than a thin crumble. We dipped ours in The Best Pizza Sauce because I still had some. I like to make a big batch so that I can freeze it to pull out for a fast pizza night. Between that and the Easy Peasy Pizza Dough that only needs 10 minutes to rise you can have amazing homemade pizza on the table in about the same time or less than delivery!
