Don’t you just love pretty bread? And stuffed bread? And easy bread recipes? Can you imagine all of them rolled together into one? Because that’s exactly what this bread is! It uses pre-made biscuit dough so there’s no wait time for rising or any of that nonsense. Stuffed with cheese (can you same YUM) and so pretty it’s impressive and totally photo ready. It might seem a little tedious to stuff and shape each piece by hand, but I promise it’s worth it!
dough for 12 biscuits (usually 1 and 1/2 cans)
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tbsp basil
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter, melted
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and allow it to preheat.
In a large bowl, mix together the cheeses, seasonings, and olive oil. Set it aside.
Cut each raw biscuit into fourths, by cutting down the middle and then across like a plus sign. Take one of the cut biscuit pieces and press it into a flat circle. Take a little bit of the cheese mixture (about 1 teaspoon) and place it in the center of the flattened circle. Fold one side of the circle over and press the edges together, making it a half-circle with the stuffing sealed inside. Take the two corners of the half circle and bring them together, pinching to that it keeps the ring shape. Place in the edge of the tagine bottom, then repeat with all of the biscuit pieces until the tagine is full. It helps if you arrange them in a spiral working from the outside towards the center.
Once all of the pieces are arranged, gently brush the top with the melted butter. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly then serve by pulling pieces off one at a time.
