Feta Pull Apart Bread

Feta Pull Apart Bread

A few years ago, when we were visiting my parents in Orange Beach, my mom tried out a new recipe on us that she knew we’d love. She was right! She picked up a recipe for Feta Pull Apart Bread from a friend who had served it at a Sunday school party, and she knew it would be right up our alley. Feta Pull Apart Bread is so simple, but it is one of those dishes that taste like you spent hours on it. And it only requires a few ingredients, all of which are easily found in your local grocery store. We happen to like it with feta, but we also love to make it with bleu cheese – any type of crumbly cheese with a strong flavor will do.

Feta Pull Apart Bread

Start with a can of refrigerated biscuits. I use Grands jumbo biscuits, which come with 10 biscuits in the can. Cut each biscuit into quarters.

Feta Pull Apart Bread

Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Put a stick of butter in the dish and put in the microwave long enough to meet the butter – mine takes around one minute. When butter is melted, toss biscuit quarters in butter to coat.

Feta Pull Apart Bread

Sprinkle about a teaspoon of Greek seasoning over the buttered biscuits. Top with a 4 oz container of feta cheese.

Feta Pull Apart Bread

Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes or until bread in center of dish is baked.

Feta Pull Apart Bread

Pull apart and enjoy! We love Feta Pull Apart Bread with just about everything, but it is especially delicious with a good soup like my Spicy Tomato Soup or Lasagna Soup.

Spicy Tomato Soup

Spicy Tomato Soup

One of the best things about cold weather is that there are so many occasions to eat soup. I love soup of almost any variety, but I’m pretty partial to a good bowl of Spicy Tomato Soup. I first tried my hand at Spicy Tomato Soup when I came across Edie’s recipe at LifeInGrace. Edie is one of those people you wish lived next door to you because you’d really like the chance to discuss with her the important things of life like homeschooling, liturgy, the perfect recipe for pizza dough, and Loretta Lynn songs. And she makes a mean pot of soup.

While Edie’s was the first spicy tomato soup recipe I made from scratch, I have honed it over the years to the degree that it has become my own. Isn’t that the hallmark of any good recipe? I make this recipe for my gang at least once a month, and I always make extra so that I can have a couple of bags in the freezer. It is delightful with a grilled cheese sandwich, a pan of Homemade Loaded Cornbread, or as pictured with my Feta Pull Apart Bread. If you aren’t as keen on spiciness as we are, feel free to adjust the level of sriracha or leave it out entirely. But since I almost always have a hankering for sriracha in all its glory, I add in a couple of extra squirts.

*Note: For this recipe, you’ll need a submersion blender. If you don’t have a submersion blender, you can blend it in a regular blender, but DO NOT fill the blender more than half full. Don’t ask. Just trust me on this.

To make a big pot of Spicy Tomato Soup, here’s what you’ll need:

3 14-0z cans of diced tomatoes
1 can chicken broth
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 of a medium onion, diced
A 6-oz can of tomato paste
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon leftover coffee
1 tablespoon dried basil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a large dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat and saute the onion until soft.

Add the canned tomatoes, chicken broth, garlic powder, coffee, basil, salt, and pepper. Simmer for about 30 minutes.

Add in the can of tomato paste and stir until blended. Heat for about 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in buttermilk.

Blend with submersion blender until smooth.

Spicy Tomato Soup can be served immediately, but it is also good after being refrigerated. It freezes beautifully.
