Soft and fluffy pull part bread filled with green onions in every bite. Inspired by green onion pancakes, this green onion pull apart bread is savory and delicious and an amazing snack.
  • 2⅓ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 packet instant yeast
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup warm milk
  • 1½ tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
Green Onion Butter
  • 3-4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ⅓ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup finely chopped green onions
  1. In a large bowl, combine yeast, flour, and salt. Add warm milk, honey, egg and butter. Mix until the flour is completely incorporated. If the dough seems too sticky, add up to a ¼ cup of flour to the dough. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for about a half hour to an hour.
  2. To make the green onion butter, combine melted salted butter, finely chopped green onions, shredded mozzarella, and minced garlic.
  3. Prepare a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Lightly grease all the sides with melted butter or olive oil. Set aside for now.
  4. Transfer the dough to a work surface and cut it into 4 equal pieces. Lightly flour your work surface. Take one piece and roll out the dough into a large rectangle. Spread the green onion butter over the dough. Then cut the rolled out dough into 3 strips lengthwise and then into 2 strips crosswise to create 6 rectangles. Stack the rectangles on top of each other. Repeat with the other 3 pieces of dough and green onion butter. Stand the stacked rectangles in the prepared loaf pan. They won’t completely fill the pan and that’s okay.
  5. Cover the pan with plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. Sprinkle extra shredded mozzarella cheese and sliced green onion on top of the bread. Transfer to the oven, and bake the green onion pull apart bread for about 30-40 minutes until the bread is golden brown. Let the bread rest in the pan for about 5 minutes before using a spatula to separate the edge of the bread from the pan. Carefully remove the bread from the pan. Brush with melted butter if desired. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and top with more chopped green onions if desired.
  8. Serve this green onion pull apart bread warm.
