Bubble Up Garlic Cheese Bread

Quick, easy, and cheese-y. That makes it quite popular in this house. All you need is a few basic ingredients-

My kids love all of the “Bubble Up” or “pull-apart” recipes we have tried, and this was no exception. I have made Bubble Up Pizza, Bubble Up Taco Casserole, Ham and Cheese Biscuit Pull Apart Casserole, and Blueberry Maple Pull Apart Breakfast Bake…what can I say, we like biscuits.
Just cut up biscuits and cover them in butter, cheese and a little garlic powder.
And watch how fast it disappears! At least it went away quick here. My kids love some bread and cheese!

Bubble Up Garlic Cheese Bread

1 can Grands Big Biscuits – cut into 1/8ths (could also use the Grands Jr and cut into 1/4ths)
2 T. melted butter
1 cup shredded cheese
garlic powder and oregano, too taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease an 8 x 8 pan and place cut biscuit pieces in the pan. (They will be overlapping)
Brush biscuits with melted butter.
Sprinkle with garlic powder per desired taste (can also be omitted for plain cheese bread)
Top with cheese.
Sprinkle with oregano (optional)
Bake for 20-25 mins, or until the edges are browned and the center is done. (It takes longer for the center to cook through.)
Carrrbs! So good.

Bubble Up Taco Casserole

With everything going on this holiday season (Christmas is 3 weeks away! Yikes!!) everyone needs a few simple recipes in their arsenal. I mean really, when you’ve spent every moment shopping, planning, wrapping, decorating and pinning Elf on the Shelf ideas…you need something easy to throw together for dinner. Bubble Up Pizza is the third most popular recipe on my site, probably for just that reason.  It’s super easy, it’s kid-friendly, and hey, it’s pizza!  I’ve made it for my kids several times myself, but when I saw the new Pillsbury Corn Biscuits, I immediately decided that a new version was in order….Bubble Up Taco!  As with the pizza version, this uses just a few basic ingredients –

and you could add any additional toppings you like (olives, green chilies, etc.) Of course, my kids wouldn’t eat anything other than the basics.

It’s pretty tasty, it’s simple to throw together, and I love the corn biscuits. (They have blueberry too. I made Blueberry Maple Pull Apart Casserole with those. YUMMM.)

Bubble Up Taco Casserole

  • 1 cans Pillsbury Corn Biscuits
  • 1/2 can Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 cup Mexican Cheese Blend
  • 1/2 lb. taco meat (lean ground beef or turkey with taco seasoning added)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  
Cut biscuits into quarters or eighths (I did some of both – these biscuits are pretty large) and place in medium bowl.  
Toss biscuits with enchilada sauce.  
Add taco meat and any additional ingredients you may want (green chilies, etc.) and half of the cheese. Toss until well blended.  
Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with cooking spray.  Pour biscuit mixture into pan and top with remaining cheese.  
Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes, or until biscuits are done. (Check center for doneness – it should be somewhat firm in the middle. Biscuits are going to remain soft because they are covered in sauce, but they shouldn’t be gooey.)
 
*This recipe is easily doubled to make a 9 x 13 size
When serving, add lettuce, sour cream, salsa, etc. However you like your tacos, you can add it to this. You can also adjust the enchilada sauce to your tastes…some people will want more sauce. My only complaint is that I wanted more spice! My kids need to toughen up their taste buds 🙂

Ham and Cheese Biscuit Pull Apart Casserole

Do you like biscuits? (I have both of my hands raised) Do you like a meal that can be put together in a hurry with just a few ingredients? (yes again!) How about a dinner that the kids say ‘this is really good, you need to make this again!’ (Do you know how rare that is in the Mo’Betta house?!) If any of these are sounding good to you…read on!

Flaky, delicious biscuits…
Ham and cheese too…
That comes together in a quick and easy casserole.

Ham and Cheese Biscuit Pull Aparts

adapted from Hot Coupon World
 1 (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits
1 egg
2 tablespoons skim milk
1 cup diced ham
1 cup cheese of choice (I used 1/2 cup fat free cheddar and 1/2 cup 2% mozzarella)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

fresh ground pepper (to taste)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray an 11 x 7 glass baking dish with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk egg and milk together.
Open biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters.
Gently stir biscuit pieces into egg mixture until evenly coated.
Fold in ham, cheese, garlic powder and pepper.
Dump biscuit mixture into prepared dish, and spread out in an even layer.
Bake at 350 for approx. 25 minutes or until golden brown.
I divided this into 6 servings, and based on the ingredients I used it came to 6 Points Plus (Weight Watchers) per serving. My girls each ate 2 servings!

Bubble Up Pizza {recipe revisited}

Bubble Up Pizza is the most popular recipe on my blog.  For good reason, I think.  It’s super easy, super kid-friendly, and it’s pizza. And biscuits!  How often can you go wrong with biscuits?!  Well, I started getting some feedback on the recipe – mostly positive, but a few people said it wasn’t enough sauce, and a couple said they couldn’t get it done in the middle.  So, I decided to make this again, per the recipe, to see if I had any issues.

I used a different pan, different oven, but the same ingredients as before.
Nope, no problems!  It was a little too sauce-y for our taste (last time I reduced it a bit), but other than that, the kids loved it.  It was done in the center, and did not get too brown on top.  I cooked it for about 30 minutes.  I think the type of biscuits you use will definitely make a difference.  If you like a thick, deep dish pizza crust, you will probably like this, and like I said, it is very kid friendly!
Check out the original post for the recipe!

Bubble Up Pizza



If you are popping over from Pinterest, Welcome to Makin’ it Mo’Betta! This is a popular recipe for good reason…it’s so easy to make, and kids love it! (At least mine do) Feel free to look around, and consider following me on any of my social media outlets for more easy recipes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You’ve probably seen these casseroles floating around for a while – Bubble Up Pizza, Bubble Up Enchiladas, etc.  I decided to give it a try since it was so simple to throw together, and totally kid-friendly!  With the girls involved in so many activities in the evenings, I need meals that are quick and easy to get on the table.  This is one we had when the hubs wasn’t home, since this is definitely not a low carb meal. (for a low carb pizza casserole, you could try this one)

(my original picture, I’ve added some newer ones!)

Bubble Up Pizza

  • 2 cans (12oz) golden layer buttermilk biscuits (Pillsbury Grands! Jr)
  • 1 jar (15oz) pizza sauce  *I used this easy homemade sauce
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • your favorite pizza toppings – cooked sausage, turkey pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms *we had mini turkey pepperoni and Canadian bacon
  • cooking spray
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cut biscuits into quarters and place in medium bowl.  Toss biscuits with pizza sauce.  Add pizza topping and half of the cheese.  Toss until well blended.  Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray.  Pour biscuit mixture into pan and top with remaining cheese.  Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes, or until biscuits are done.

Verdict?  The kids loved this! I thought it was pretty good too, just not very calorie friendly.  I think I’m going to try it with rolls (like frozen Rhodes rolls) next time and see how that goes.  It would be less fat than the biscuits.  I’ll let ya know!  I mixed everything up before basketball practice, then baked it when we got home, so I had a hot meal on the table in about 30 minutes!  We had a salad to go with it.  Quick and easy!
