A friend of mine recently served this at her dinner party, and said "it couldn't be easier", and I said "it couldn't be more delicious" and all other guests agreed. It disappeared in minutes!!! It is a delicious and quick appetizer, or could also be the "bread" accompaniment to any main course, either way, your family and friends will "gobble" it up!! And, it is easy and fun for kids to make and enjoy too!!
- 1 (16 1/3 ounce) packagepillsbury grands homestyle biscuits
- 1⁄4 cup butter or 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
- parmesan cheese (optional)
- Melt butter or margarine in pan; add blue cheese.
- Stir until blue cheese is melted and smooth.
- Take each dinner roll, and cut it into 6 pieces.
- Oil an 8x8-inch (or similar size) pan or glass baking dish (glass baking dish is preferred).
- Pour butter/blue cheese mixture into the baking dish.
- Place the cut up pieces of dough into the baking dish, on top of the blue cheese/butter mixture, crowding the pieces so that they touch.
- Bake according to packaged roll directions, usually 13-17 minutes, on about 350°-375°, or until golden brown on underside of pan (that is why it is good to use a glass dish, so you can lift it up to see if the underside is baked enough).
- When done, invert baking dish and the easy blue cheesy bread should drop out easily--so that what was the "bottom" in the baking dish becomes the "top"--serve immediately.
- While it is still hot, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve (optional).
- This is basically "pull apart finger food" and is absolutely delicious!
This was good and so easy. I think that next time I will toss the pieces of biscuit in the mixture to coat them all over. It's a mild blue cheese flavor but not overwhelming.
This sounded fantastic and I was ready to love it, but it was just very average for me. Not a very strong blue cheese taste at all, which is what I was hoping for, and was also expecting it to be more buttery. Maybe it was the quality of the blue cheese I used, which wasn't the most expensive, but I honestly wouldn't use the best for this type of recipe. I'm glad I tried it out before my party, and unfortunately won't be making it, but I love the concept of it, and will probably play around with different ingredients. Sorry this wasn't better for me!
This is fantastic! I've made it several times and here is what I discovered: Don't mix it up ahead of time to bake later, you can add more bleu cheese if you're a bleu cheese freak like us, and leftovers reheat pretty good in the oven covered in foil, but it is best when first made and hot out of the oven. Mmmmmmmm is right!
