After listening to, and talking with various people lately, I've come to realize that the majority of people I've heard from don't especially like to cook, or bake. They tend to do it out of necessity, and nothing more. Many would rather have a recipe that takes only minutes to prepare with a minimum of ingredients to deal with, than a recipe that is a bit more challenging and calls for a long list of ingredients.

Because I want to please you and bring you recipes that you'll actually want to make,  going forward I'm going to try and bring you more recipes that are quick, simple, delicious, and easy to follow. I've developed this recipe with just that in mind.

Naturally, if you love to bake homemade bread (like I love to do), you can easily swap out the canned biscuits with your favorite yeast dough to make this Cheesy Garlic Pull-Apart Bread. The method for assembling this loaf will remain the same after the homemade dough has had its first proofing.

Yield: 1 large 9" loaf     Prep Time: 10 minutes     Bake Time: 40 minutes

6 tablespoons butter, melted
ΒΌ cup olive oil
2 cans large biscuits
3 cups shredded mozzarella, divided
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
1 teaspoon dried basil, divided
1 teaspoon dried oregano, divided
1 tablespoon garlic powder, divided
1 -  9" spring formpan
olive oil spray

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

-Place the melted butter and olive oil into a medium sized bowl.

-Cut 1 can of the biscuits into chunks and place them in the bowl with the butter and olive oil. Toss to coat. Place the buttered biscuits into an even layer in the bottom of the spring formpan, that has been sprayed with olive oil. Top with half the mozzarella cheese, half the Parmesan cheese, half the basil, oregano and garlic powder.

-Cut the second can of biscuits into chunks and repeat the same steps with the remaining ingredients, layering them into the spring form pan, and topping them with the cheese to finish.

-Bake in a preheated oven for 40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove and cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the outside of the loaf to loosen and then remove the collar of the spring form pan to reveal the loaf. Serve warm for gooey cheese, but serving at room temperature is great too.
