Parmesan Garlic Pull Apart Bread

29 Oct

Over the last 2 weeks of Bountiful Baskets, I have gotten a lot of garlic.  I don’t usually use fresh garlic, but since I have it, I needed to find ways to use it.  This recipe is a lot like monkey bread, a favorite of mine that my sister always makes for Christmas morning breakfast.  I had read a post about the Parmesan Pull Apart Bread at My Kinda Rain, and changed up the recipe a bit based on what I had and what pans I had.  Tonight I decided it was time to make it again with the fresh garlic I had, and oh man, I had forgotten how good this bread is!  It was the perfect complement to the Spaghetti Pie we had (which I will be writing about very soon!).

Parmesan Garlic Pull Apart Bread

What you need:

1 can Pillsbury Grands biscuits (not the flaky layered kind)*
1/2 stick of butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp garlic salt

How to make it:

Preheat your oven to 375 F.  Melt butter in a small pan on the stove, and stir in the minced garlic. Pour the mixture into a 9 in round baking pan.  Sprinkle in the Parmesan cheese and garlic salt.

Cut each Grands biscuit into 4 pieces and gently roll each piece in your hands.  Drop into the pan.  It doesn’t have to be too tightly together, there can be small gaps because the dough will expand some while baking.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until tops of dough just start to brown.  Remove from oven and immediately flip bread onto a plate to serve.

* You can also make biscuit dough according to the package directions on a box of Bisquick.  With regular Bisquick, it is 2 1/4 cups Bisquick and 2/3 cup milk, then just mix together.  Roll the dough into balls, and follow the remaining directions above.
