Bacon Pull-Apart Bread


  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 large boule
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped thyme leaves
  • 1 (8 ounce) brie wheel
  • Pinch of Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and place a wire rack inside of a large rimmed baking sheet.  Spread bacon strips in a single layer on top of the rack.  Brush with maple syrup and sprinkle with brown sugar.

Step 2: Bake until the bacon is crispy, flipping the slices halfway through, about 20 minutes.  Let cool slightly then chop.

Step 3: Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.  Using a serrated knife, crosshatch the boule, making slices every inch in both directions and making sure to not slice all the way through the bottom of boule.

Step 4: In a small bowl, whisk together butter, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper.  Brush boule with butter mixture, making sure to get inside the crosshatches.

Step 5: Cut brie into small thin strips.  Stuff each crosshatch with brie & bacon and wrap bread completely in foil.  Bake until the cheese is melted and the bread is warm and toasty, about 20 minutes.  Let cool 5 minutes, then serve warm.
