Skillet Bread

Italian Skillet Bread...

We normally just call this "Skillet Bread", but since this is Jenny's  Alphabe-Thursday's "I"  and since I typically make this with "Italian-inspired" entrees like Chicken Parmesan and Spaghetti...I thought "Italian Skillet Bread" was perfect.

And I had to go over to Jo's awesome Giveaway...

...which brought me to Happier Than a Pig in I'm linking on to her fun food BlogHop this week!

And also joining in with Alicia for Friday Photo Flashback
...and with Mel for Fancy Friday.
...and with Dolly & Lorrie's co-hosting their Recipe Swap Meet
...and with Bibi for Foodie Wednesday.
...and with April for  Military Monday blog hop.

First, a little bit about this yummy bread...

Amongst some of our kids' favorite requests when they come to visit, this little tasty tidbit makes its way with a meal...cuz its so quick and easy! I say "So Easy!"...This yummy addition to any meal is "Super-duper Easy!"

I do make it with the Chicken Parmesan, Eggplant Parmesan, Spaghetti...but also have made it to go with soup or chili...   I don't do measurements with this, but for this post, I tried to keep some of it in mind as well as the time and temp...

So here we go...


1. Ingredients are:  1 can of the biscuits, garlic powder, parmesan cheese, butter
(A non-stick skillet and lid).

2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet on low to medium.
Add a thin layer of garlic powder and parmesan cheese to the bottom of the skillet.
Pop the biscuits open (This still is such fun to do!)

3. Add the biscuits on top of the butter, garlic powder and parmesan one layer...looks like a flower :o) Add about one more tablespoon of butter...I just put some pats of butter right on the biscuits.
And sprinkle more garlic powder and parmesan cheese to your taste.

Cover and let the one side brown on the medium heat for about 4 to 5 minutes or til golden brown.

 4. When one side is brown, I just slide the biscuits onto the cover and then use the lid to flip the biscuits back into the skillet, so that the other side will be browned.

5. Keep covered and keep cooking on medium heat til brown. Check and see that biscuits are cooked through with no doughy consistency. (About 5 to 6 minutes).

6. Flip onto a plate and serve hot! Yumm! Hope I explained it clearly. Enjoy!

(***I'm glad that I was able to join in this week in the fun blog hops/memes! Actually surprised that I was able to get this post together! made that skillet bread so that I could post pictures with this post... and with our kids living out of state and my hubby at work... there's nobody ("no buddies") to share it with...***)
Here is a photo of our daughter Girly~Twirly and her boyfriend when they came home on their Spring Break this year. I know that I made the Italian Skillet Bread when they were home...but I guess, I didn't take any photos of any of our meals together!

 & here is a photo of my Handsome Honey with our son Heartbreaker and his girlfriend, when they came to visit during Spring Break this year...
(I couldn't find any photos of us when we had the skillet bread....but you can see the Monkey Bread (aka Pluck Cake aka Pull Aparts) that I had made when they were home.

(I was going to share that monkey bread recipe...that I had been making since 1984, when a dear friend shared me her recipe! you can find that yummy recipe right on the packages of the Pillsbury biscuits!)
...besides Sweet Jo already shared this on her post along with her delicious looking Cordon Bleu recipe.
....and I also couldn't figure out a way to incorporate the letter "I" with "monkey bread! :o)

Have to get an order out today, so will close with only these art pieces that were recently done.
I realize that many of you are familiar with the art that I do....but for those that are new to my blog, every art piece that I do is drawn entirely with a person's name. Please take a look at more past orders on my facebook page...and I'd love if you become a "fan" of it by "liking" my facebook art page.

Thanks Angel, for ordering this one for your dad.

And thank you Pam for your interest in the art and it was fun doing this giveaway one for you to give to your hubby!

Thank you for stopping by...I will be sure to return your lovely visits! Thank you always for taking the time to comment :o)

(***added note: outside my front door, I found a fun surprise package left by the UPS man... my DVD of Hitch that I won on Quirky Pickings :o) Yay! Thanks sooo much! :o)

Oh! One more added thing: Our sweet daughter Girly~Twirly (aka theluckiestmrs) has posted after being MIA due to her work schedule! We talk with them every day, but it was fun to see that she was able to do a post today!
If you have some time, please stop by and say welcome back to this wonderful blog world...I'm so happy that she introduced me to blogging!

Signature for blog

Oooooh, yummy! This is a great recipe to have on hand! I love the Harley drawing, it's so neat!

~ Regan said...

Oh, WOW! This looks so incredible! I wish I could have those biscuits, but I'm afraid pillsbury have milk derivatives in it :( gotta stay away fromm that! But, I have some really good soy butter (it cooks and tastes like the real thing) so maybe I can just make my own dough to fry up.
I really want to try this soon! Thanks for sharing!

You must be full of energy. You can cook, sketch, clean teeth, raise children, care for your sweetie, do stain glass, and whatever strikes your fancy. I do not know how you do it. I am tired just thinking about it.

Judie said...

This is a wonderful recipe! I am having guests this weekend and it will be on my menu!!!!

Pondside said...

I'm just going to have to get a can of those biscuits and try that - it looks like something easy enough to do after work to smarten up a simple soup or chili.

Michelle A'etonu said...

Hi Maria! I'm trying to get caught up on blogging. My laptop was on the fritz, so Malu and I had to share his. Not fun! This recipe looks great!!! I can't wait to try it. I'd love the monkey bread recipe too. I also saw all the polish pottery on the table in one of those pics :) i'm going to poland on labor day weekend, so hopefully i'll find those glasses you're wanting. the craft/framing shop on post is backlogged. sina's ladybug has been with them for a month now. they said it could be another week. ridiculous! i can't wait to see it though! anyway, have a great weekend!

Sending you a blog hug,

I think this looks so delicious and simple even. I agree that opening the Pillsbury cans are still so much fun. =)
I would love to make these when my kids come down to visit with their girlfriends, too. What a great way to make buiscuts without having to turn on the oven... WooHoo.
Thank you so much for linking up with us on our fledgling meme, I hope you continue to do so. <3
