Yummy Pull-Apart Herb Biscuits

There are few things I love more than the smell of bread baking in my oven… even if that bread came from a can in the refrigerated section of my grocery store :)

Thankfully, we are not gluten-free and we are not low-carb… because we have some type of bread, rolls, or biscuits with almost every single meal. And while I honestly do love making homemade bread, Dave and I both grab for seconds (and sometimes thirds) when fluffy, flaky, from-a-can biscuits make it to the table!

The recipe I’m sharing today is OH SO simple… and will turn a can of yummy biscuits or rolls into a fabulously delicious side dish, worthy of even your fanciest holiday parties (or of course, just a simple week-night meal with picky children!)

Are you getting hungry yet?

Recipe for Pull-Apart Herb Biscuits:

Print recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tube (12 -16 oz) refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/4 c. butter, melted
  • 1 T. minced garlic (or 1 t. garlic powder)
  • 2 T. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 T. sesame seeds
  • 2 t. dried basil
  • 2 t. dried oregano
  • 2 t. dried thyme
  • 2 t. dried sage

NOTE: You can use ANY combination of herbs and spices you’d like. This is just what we regularly use with delicious results. You could also just use Parmesan cheese and garlic if you have really picky eaters.

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400* F
  • Place 1/4 c. butter in an ungreased 9″ round baking pan and put in oven while preheating
  • Cut each biscuit into 4-6 chunks; set aside
  • In a small bowl, mix together cheese and all dried herbs; set aside
  • Remove butter from oven when melted and add minced garlic (if using garlic powder, just mix it in with the dry herbs)
  • Stir biscuit chunks in the pan with melted butter until evenly coated
  • Sprinkle herb/cheese mixture over biscuits and stir to coat
  • Bake in preheated oven for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately!

When it’s just Dave and me, I usually bring the whole pan of biscuits to the table so we can pick off what we want. However, if company is coming, I’ll often remove the biscuits from the pan and put the whole “disk” on a cake platter. It looks like a fancy artisan loaf of bread that you slaved over all day in the kitchen to prepare.

No one has to know it came from a can — except for the fact that everyone will most likely ask for the recipe!

I’m guessing you could also make this recipe with homemade dough — especially if you have a favorite biscuit recipe. However, I can attest to the fact that the store-bought from-a-can dough works well too :)

Oh, you can also transform this recipe into a “sweet treat” by using 2 T. cinnamon and 1/2 c. white sugar in place of the cheese and herbs (sorry, I don’t have a picture of that).

YUMMY!

    Thanks for posting this recipe, will try it soon! We will be traveling with my husband soon. He does a lot of trade shows and we try to go to the driving ones with him. We homeschool so we take our books with us. We will be staying in a condo for 5 days and it will have a full kitchen. My question is this: We will be eating in to save money and I am trying to come up with easy meals that won’t require a lot of things to pack and bring with us. Breakfast and lunch are already planned easily but dinner is the area I need suggestions. Would you consider doing a post on this type of thing? Any help would be appreciated!

    Chelly – check out Andrea’s post on ‘Meal Planning, Shopping, & Cooking for 30.’ It’s got GREAT tips that can help you plan ahead and just downsize her recipes. I realize you don’t want to bring/pack a bunch, but a few dinners prepped ahead of time and frozen would pack easily enough. Good luck!

    Hi Stephanie,
    I found a recipe on pinterest. I haven’t had the chance to try it, but they look spot on.

    The Texas Roadhouse rolls are criminal! They are so good. All the “fake” recipes for these rolls turn out dry and hard.

    Tried the recipe last night, but didn’t have all the herbs. Just used parmesan cheese and garlic salt. Simply amazing!!

    Thanks for the link to the TX roadhouse rolls – can’t wait to try them!

    I have a very similar recipe with homemade dough and we love eating it with soup and pasta dishes. Comfort food at its best!

    I made this last night with homemade biscuit dough since I didn’t have a can on hand (used Bobby Flay’s recipe for Buttermilk Biscuits) and it still turned out amazing!
    My husband and I thank you for posting this one!! It was the perfect complement to our lasagna. Couldn’t get any simpler or more delicious! This recipe’s a keeper!

    Wow! Thank you for sharing this, Andrea – it was a hit! Although my fiance enjoys bread, he (for some reason) is not a big biscuit fan. We devoured these this evening! I can’t wait to make the breakfast version. =)

    I so wish I wasn’t low carb because all these yummy recipes are not something I can eat every day. I only eat bread most of the time in restaurants and they’re usually like these, with all the goodies. My sweet tooth gets me in trouble way enough. I will try this recipe one of these days when the occasion calls for it.
