Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls

Even though things are opening back up it doesn’t mean I have to stop crafting up new things in the kitchen. I tend to scroll through the Tasty app trying to discover new recipes to try. The ones that I find ideal to make are those that don’t involve too much work and only require a few ingredients. In my opinion, the recipe to look for is one involving garlic!

Two-Ingredient Cocktail

Before we start it’s time for another cocktail utilizing a Shrubwell cocktail mixer. You may remember the first Shrubwell mixer when I made a Cucumber Ginger Rose Martini. However, this time I’m mixing up the liquor with some Tequila instead of Vodka. When you read the description of this mixer you’ll understand why I used Tequila.

Tamarind and Ancho chiles are two big flavors that one can experience in Mexican cuisine. So that is why Tequila is the ideal liquor to pair with these flavors. However, for those of you that enjoy the smoky notes of mezcal, then I’d recommend that liquor for this concoction. Although I don’t typically keep Mezcal around the house, I’ve never been the biggest fan of the intense smoky flavor.

Even without Mezcal, the tamarind flavor did add a bit of smoky flavor. The ancho chile brought on a slight heat with each sip. Let’s not forget the pineapple because that was essential in the sweetness of the cocktail. Overall I’m not a fan of drinks that are both spicy and smoky. I feel those are flavors that I enjoy in my food since they are meant for savory items. This may not have been my favorite mixer so far but don’t worry, I still have two more under my sleeve.

Six-Ingredient Appetizer

After finding the perfect recipe I hit the grocery store and I only needed to buy four ingredients. I had run out of butter at home, so I would have only needed to get three things if it wasn’t for that. I bought some parsley, biscuit dough, and mozzarella cheese to make these cheesy garlic pull-a-parts. One thing I decided to add that the recipe didn’t call for was some minced garlic which I had lying around the house.

A bowlful of Biscuit Dough

The first step to making these Pull-Apart Garlic rolls is by quartering the biscuit dough. Once you do that throw it in a bowl along with 3 tablespoons of melted butter, ½ teaspoon of garlic powder, 2 tablespoons of parsley, and a whole cup of mozzarella cheese. This is what the recipe calls for, however, I figured I’d kick things up a notch by throwing in some minced garlic. I put in a tablespoon of garlic to just really add to the garlic flavor.

Ready for the Oven

After you toss all the ingredients together to coat them onto each biscuit dough you are ready to transfer to the muffin tin. I’ve never personally owned a muffin tin so I had to run over to Target to get one. I think it was only $3 or $4 so I’d say it was worth it. 

But I digress. Take 3 pieces of the biscuit dough and put them in one space of the muffin tin. This is basically how you get the pull-apart since you aren’t forcibly sticking them together. I had some leftover cheese so I sprinkled the rest on top of each roll to add some extra cheese. Now it is time for them to take a trip to the 375 degrees heated oven for 15 minutes of heat.

After the long 15 minutes of smelling garlic wafting through the house, they were ready. Although I did have to let them cool for a little bit so I couldn’t pull these Pull-Aparts just yet. With any garlic bread, a nice dipping sauce always helps so I got the marinara sauce out.

Inside Peek

I just had to share the pic of the inside of the Pull-Apart garlic rolls to get a glimpse of the interweaving cheese throughout. The bright green specks of parsley jump out at you as well and one can just think that if there are greens then it’s healthy, right? You can spot a couple of the tiny bits of garlic sprinkled throughout. My favorite part was the fact that these were soft and warm to the touch.

Saucy Pic

Now for the taste of these cheesy and garlicky morsels. The biscuit dough along with the melted butter made each bite moist and delicious. You can spot the mozzarella cheese oozing down from the garlic roll which brought on the perfect cheese factor. The parsley helped with the Italian flavors along with some herbiness. However, in the end, it was all about the garlic. The combination of both the garlic powder and the minced garlic turned this into a garlic lover’s dream! The marinara sauce also gave each bite some tanginess and to help cut down the richness of the buttery roll.
