10 Savory, Melty Cheese Bread Recipes
This traditional Georgian cheese bread is a specialty at Oda House in New York City's East Village. The boat-shaped bread comes to the table piping hot, with a runny egg on top. You mix the egg into the gooey cheese to finish cooking, then tear off pieces of the bread to scoop it all up.

Pull-Apart Cheesy Onion Bread
This recipe is as fun to eat as monkey bread (little balls of yeast dough that are baked in a pan together, then pulled apart at the table) but a lot less time-consuming to make. Grace Parisi spreads her buttery biscuit dough with a savory onion-Gruyere mixture, stacks layers of it sideways in a loaf pan, then bakes it until golden and fluffy. This pull-apart bread makes a great appetizer--no utensils required! And since no yeast is needed for this recipe, it takes just 20 minutes of prep time.
