Garlic Grands - Erin

I can't even remember where it was that I first saw this recipe, but we've slowly messed with it, and there's rarely a problem with having much (or any) of this left over!

 What you will need

1 container pillsbury grands original recipe, separated and quartered
1/4 cup butter
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
dried or fresh herbs (I use the Italian mix)
Marinara sauce for dipping (optional)

First, preheat your oven to 350F.  Then, crack open the biscuit dough, separate the individuals biscuits, and cut each one into 4.  Set aside.  Melt the butter, and add the minced garlic and whatever herbs you choose.  Let that cook for a minute or two, but keep an eye on the garlic so it doesn't burn.  Add most of the grated cheese to the butter/garlic/herb mix, reserving just a Tablespoon or so, and then using a little of this garlic butter mix, lightly brush the inside of an 8x8 baking dish.  Reduce the heat on the garlic butter, but make sure it doesn't start to solidify.  

Now start adding the quartered biscuits into the dish.  It doesn't have to be in perfect rows, but they should be as evenly spread as possible so that they get even amounts of the garlic butter mix.  Once they're all in, brush them with the garlic butter mix, using all of it.  Make sure you spread the chunky bits out evenly to avoid garlic bombs...

Then just pop it in the oven.  I tend to let it go a couple of minutes past the directions on the container, just until it's browned at the tops.  Grab some marinara sauce (a jar from the grocery is totally fine), and get to work.  Delicious.
