Turkey and Swiss Pull Apart Bread

TURKEY AND SWISS PULL APART BREAD is the perfect football food – so cheesy and it’s always a hit with hungry football fans! Big thanks to Eckrich for sponsoring this post.

I don’t know about you, but I’m here for basically one thing when it comes to football: The food. 

Bring on the snacks.

Yes, I’ll cheer along when my husband starts jumping around and shouting at the screen, but for the most part you’ll find me hovering around the snack table.

This cheesy pull apart bread is basically the perfect football food.

I took a loaf of sourdough bread and stuffed it with oven roasted turkey and swiss cheese and then I drowned it in this dijon garlic butter. I’m in heaven.

This recipe is sponsored by Eckrich. I love using their deli meats for sandwiches so it was a natural fit for this pull apart bread.

You can find Eckrich at the deli counter. Order some of the Oven Roasted Turkey Breast and ask for it to be shredded so that it’s falling apart. This will make it so simple to stuff your pull apart bread. 

Eckrich has a wide range of hardwood smoked sausages and top-quality deli meats. They’re easy to cook with, versatile, and basically perfect for football season and beyond!

How to make this cheesy pull apart bread:

To start, gather up those ingredients: Eckrich Oven Roasted Turkey Breast, shredded swiss cheese, and a loaf of sourdough bread are a good start. You’ll also want some butter, dijon mustard, garlic, and parsley to really take this whole thing to the next level.

sliced sourdough loaf

Grab your loaf of sourdough bread and a serrated bread knife. Slice the bread diagonally into 1-inch thick strips, being careful not to cut all the way through the bread. 

Rotate your bread and cut the other direction to create a diamond shape. 

Start stuffing the shaved turkey into the cuts in the bread and then add in your swiss cheese. 

Don’t be shy! Fill that bread up!

dijon garlic butter

Next, melt some butter in a small bowl and stir in some dijon, garlic, and parsley. 

Spoon that mixture over the bread, being sure that it soaks down in the cracks. 

Wrap your bread in foil and pop it in the oven to get nice and melty and warm and amazing. 

It’s time to dig in! 

This pull apart bread is perfect for snacking! Just grab a chunk of bread…be careful though. People might try to fight you for it. It’s THAT good! 😉
