Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Muffins

I was craving our Simple Tomato Soup the other night, so I decided that’s what we were having for dinner. I often make it with grilled cheese (using a cast iron skillet and “bacon iron”). But the other night, we didn’t have any bread. And we didn’t have any sliced cheese either. We had Pillsbury Grands rolls and cheese sticks. So I had to become resourceful. Thus, these Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Muffins were born.

They were so easy and so incredibly delicious. You would have thought that this was actually my plan all along. Seriously. If you just bring these out with dinner, no one will have any idea that you didn’t have all the ingredients for grilled cheese.

Enjoy — by pulling apart, of course.

Seriously, we loved these. Necessity is the mother of all invention, they say, and that’s what these are. I’ll definitely be making them all the time now.

    Using the grands makes this recipe a whole lot more simple than making it all from scratch. It only adds a minute or so to the prep time.
