"This is a wonderful pull apart bread with cheesy centers. A delightful accompaniment to a spaghetti dinner, or any other Italian dish. It is also super easy to prepare. My kids love helping me prepare this!" — MrsHappyHomemaker

2 (7.5 ounce) packages
refrigerated biscuit dough
string cheese sticks, cut into 1 inch pieces
garlic powder to taste
I make this every once and a while for my husband and kids. Instead of string cheese, I use shredded mozzerella and I use my own homemade italian seasoning and homemade marinara. It's always a hit. If you're feeling lazy, this recipe also works if you quarter your biscuits and then layer them in your baking pan, spread the sauce (combined with the spices) over the top of the biscuits (you might need more sauce), then sprinkle with the cheeses. It will also be like Pull Apart Bread, but more like pizza. GREAT way for couponers to use their many canisters of whomp biscuits.
I'm not a big fan of refrigerated biscuit dough. If I make these again, I would try Rhodes dough.
I used to make this for my younger siblings, brings back memories :) One tip I have to maximize the taste is to sprinkle some garlic powder and a bit of whatever seasonings you sprinkle on top of the biscuits (in lieu of Italian seasoning I use basil and parsley) into the greased pan before placing the dough in the pan. Oh and I use homemade sauce and shredded mozzarella, but those are just personal preferences. Just a warning, this flies off the table! ;)
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this! Not only was it so simple to assemble, but it was beautiful and VERY yummy! I think I ate more of this than our pasta tonight, lol. I did just eyeball the Italian seasoning, just to taste, and added some parsley as well. I could see just making this an appetizer or a side to a nice salad and calling it dinner...that's how much we enjoyed it! I will ALWAYS keep the ingredients on hand for this awesome bread~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
2 biscuit cans+1 jar Prego+1 Kraft mozz. cheese+pepperoni= SUPER CHEAP SIDE DISH. Go to the 99c store and make life easier on yourself.
Mmmmmm, after 15 mins exactly the bread was really browned on top, which actually wasn't too bad, crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.
My nephew and nieces loved making and eating this! I found the cook time a little short, I baked for 25 minutes with foil over top after 5.
These are really good. I did use frozen bread dough balls, though, instead of biscuits. They were soft, fluffy, and flavorful. Thanks for a great idea!
I almost burned my mouth trying to eat this too quickly! I did make a few changes: I'm not a biscuit fan so I used refrigerated crescent dough instead I flattene out a triangle and put a tiny spoon of marinara at the short end with a cube of cheese on top, folded in the corners and rolled it up, pinching the sides to make sure nothing leaked out. I also took another reviewer's advise and seasoned the bottom of the pan after spraying it with Pam (garlic salt, oregano, basil). I baked it according to the package directions, although it needed about 10 extra minutes to cook through. But I was totally delicious and simple, I will def make this again and again!!!
