Garlic Parmesan Pull Apart Bread

So, we love carbs at our house. Love them. I am a big label reader, however, so I was SUPER happy when I found these rolls in a can that met my label reading standards. Woot!

My family loved these and we also thought it would be great if we could make a sweet version with cinnamon and sugar. Maybe I will get to that next week, in the meantime enjoy this yummy goodness.

1 can of refrigerated biscuits (not the flaky layers kind)
1/2 stick of butter
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp Italian Seasoning

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Throw the cold stick of butter in a bundt pan and let it melt in the preheating oven.

While the butter melts, cut the biscuits into quarters.

In a bowl, toss the biscuit pieces, garlic, Italian Seasoning, and Parmesan cheese together.

Once the butter is melted, add the biscuit mixture, sprinkling with any cheese and garlic that gets let behind in the bowl.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20- 25 minutes until golden brown. Turn out on a dish and enjoy!

What did the family think? They LOVED it!

Where did this recipe come from? I have seen this on Pinterest a lot, but I got this version from The Virtuous Wife

Breakfast Grilled Cheese

The people at Food Network magazine must have been thinking of us then they put out this month’s addition of their magazine…the whole magazine focuses on cheese. Cheese!!!

We made this last weekend and it is SO tasty! It’s a little on the sweet side, so it might make a fun dessert, too.

1/3 cup whipped cream cheese
1/4 cup small-curd cottage cheese
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar, plus more for topping
4 frozen waffles (untoasted)
1 to 2 tablespoons jam (any flavor)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more if needed
Ground cinnamon, for topping

Mix the cream cheese, cottage cheese and confectioners’ sugar in a medium bowl.

Spread 2 waffles with the jam, then top with the cream cheese mixture; cover with the remaining 2 waffles.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sandwiches and cook until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side, adding more butter to the pan if needed. (Adjust the heat if the waffles are browning too quickly.)

Let the sandwiches rest 1 minute before serving. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon.

What did the family think? Only two of us ate these, but we both liked them. The only thing I would change is that I didn’t like the cheese part still being cold when the waffle was nice and toasty. Maybe next time I will let the cheese filling sit for a while to get closer to room temperature before I start cooking.

Parmesan Green Beans

We love cheese around here and things really do taste better when you put cheese on them. My oldest not only will eat these, but he likes them. Likes them!!! They are super easy too!

Frozen green beans (You’ll need enough to feed however many people will eat them.)
Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Defrost green beans in the microwave. They can still be a little frozen, just not in a huge chunk of ice.

Spread green beans out on a cookie sheet and pour on a few dollops of olive oil. Stir around to coat most of the green beans with the olive oil.

Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

Bake for about 12 minutes.

Take out of oven and sprinkle with Parmesan.

What did the family think? They love them. (excpet the youngest who is “allergic to all things green)
