Cheddar Beef Skillet Pull Apart Bread – perfect for a snack, appetizer or school lunch! These rolls are filled with a tasty beef and mushroom mixture and lots of cheddar cheese! Great crowd pleaser!
Hey guys! I have a great recipe for you guys today that your children will love. These rolls are filled with an easy to make but super tasty beef and mushroom filling and a piece of cheddar cheese in each one. Beef and cheddar, great combo and all rolled into a bread roll. I love these frozen dinner rolls, I find them very versatile.
All you have to do is let them thaw out at room temperature, mine took about 2 hours to become completely soft, but it could take longer depending on the temperature in your house. Another alternative to this is to use store bought pizza dough, or make your own, especially if you cannot find frozen bread rolls.
The mixture is made with beef, onions, mushrooms, herbs and spices. This is a great way to hide those veggies for kids, they won’t even taste them in here. Of course you could use anything else if you don’t like mushrooms, like peppers, or spinach, add some celery and carrots, totally up to you.
I love making skillet rolls! Try these recipes:
These rolls are so delicious and so fun to make, perfect to get your kids involved and have them help you make these. As these bake you get that nice bread baking aroma in your house, your neighbors will come calling. That could be a good thing or bad thing. Depends if you want to share or not. I like to serve these with some pizza sauce for dipping, but marinara sauce would work just as well.
