Herb & Garlic "Bubble" Bread

My kids call this bubble bread and we've been making it for years. I've never uploaded the recipe because it seemed, well,....too easy. But of late I find myself calling on many old simple stand-by recipes to get me through busy soccer and football nights. Your family will LOVE this!

2-4 T. butter
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning*
1 clove garlic, pressed
3-4 T. Parmesan cheese
1 pkg. Grands biscuits

In a heat-proof skillet, melt butter. Add pressed garlic and seasoning and stir until bubbly. Remove from heat and sprinkle the Parmesan over the top of the butter mixture. Open biscuits and cut each in to 4 pieces with a knife or a pair of kitchen shears. Arrange the biscuts pieces on top of the butter. Place skillet in a 400 degree oven and cook for about 13-15 minutes or until top is golden brown. Remove from oven, then invert onto a plate when ready to serve.
I love the way this is served because you can just pull pieces off of the loaf. On busy nights I cook some pasta, toss either marinara or alfredo (storebought of course) over the top and serve it with this bread a simple green salad. A perfect weeknight meal.
*You can use any type of Italian seasoning, but I love the Pampered Chef Italian Seasoning Mix or Shirley J. Pizza and Pasta Sprinkle.
