Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

I don’t know about you but whenever I’m bringing an appetizer to a party or a potluck, it is always my goal to bring the one that people will love the most. What can I say — I want the star dish of the party! If that’s you too, we’ve got you covered. This Garlic Butter Bubble Bread is made up in shareable sheet pan fashion so it’s is as fun as it is delicious and it’s super easy to make.

You don’t even have to make bread dough! Nope — this uses the shortcut of refrigerated biscuit dough and it works beautifully. You’ll need two tubes, and you want to cut each biscuit into quarters before rolling each piece into a ball.

Then you’ll stir some garlic, parsley, olive oil, and garlic powder into some melted butter…

and use it to brush the sides of your baking pan and — of course — pour it alllllll over those dough balls.

They bake for twenty minutes…

…before you top them with some cheese and pop them in the oven again.

And then you get pull-apart buttery, garlicky, cheesy bread that’s as fun to share as it is to make.
