Need a quick and delicious dish to bring to the potluck on game day? Pull-apart bread is exactly the thing. What party has not benefited from hands-on carbs? You can make pull-apart bread from scratch — or shortcut it by using pizza dough or store-bought bread. It’s easy to make, easy to transport, can be sweet or savory, and really helps to bring a potluck of dips and snacks together.

Any one of these eight pull-apart breads will be perfect for your Super Bowl party this Sunday.

1. Cheesy Garlic Butter Bubble Bread

This easy, cheesy pull-apart bubble bread is the ultimate potluck side dish. It starts with canned biscuit dough, takes less than half an hour to prep, and it cooks quickly into extra-gooey bite-sized chunks. You can top it with cheese before baking or transport and broil the cheese just before serving.

2. Pull-Apart Cheese Bread

This is the classic pull-apart loaf, and it’s as simple to make as can be. Just buy your favorite sourdough or wheat bread, slice it in a cross-hatch pattern than slather it in herby butter and sprinkle with cheese. Bake the whole thing and revel in its cheesy goodness.

3. Pull-Apart Challah Rolls

Challah walks that line between sweet and savory, making it perfect for a festive get-together on game day. While these rolls start with an enriched yeast dough and will need about 2 1/2 hours total to rise, they’ll come together easily on Sunday morning, as you skip the intricate braiding in a traditional challah.

4. No-Knead Garlic Tear & Share Bread

Garlic bread is pretty great, but turning it into a tear and share loaf makes it really special. This loaf starts with a no-knead bread dough. Make it on Saturday, then put it together and bake just before kick-off.

5. Pull-Apart Sweet Potato Rolls

The genius of this recipe is that you don’t have to spend time roasting or puréeing a sweet potato to get all that flavor. Instead, you grate the raw sweet potato and work it into the dough. Baking softens it into a sweet and savory loaf that everyone will love.

6. No-Knead Garlic-Parmesan Monkey Bread

This garlic and parmesan pull apart loaf starts with store bought pizza dough, and you can totally make this at the last minute. It travels well in the loaf pan you bake it in, but you’ll want to double the recipe if you’re serving a hungry crowd.

7. Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls

Who says you can’t bring cinnamon rolls to a football party? The best part about these is that you can bake them and transport them in a slow cooker, which is especially handy if your oven is busy baking wings and pizza rolls.

8. Pesto and Goat Cheese Tarte Soleil

Technically this flaky, puff-pastry appetizer is a tart, but it still falls into the pull-apart category. With just five total ingredients and an impressively beautiful presentation (which is sneakily-easy to achieve), this dish is both simple and fast, which is always a win in our party playbook.
