Cheesy Spinach Pull-Apart Bread with Hearts of Palm

This post contains affiliate links.
 In your family do you have things that you refer to as “party food?“ We do. This generally applies to finger foods, baked appetizers, and other truly wonderful little edibles that we tend to only make for parties, and never for ourselves. Why is that? I mean, we love this food, why not enjoy it more often? Today, I decided that I was going to make party food for myself.

This is super simple to make. The filling can be made the day before, and assembly is a breeze so that you can bake it up just before you’re ready to enjoy it. Dividing the filling between the slices of biscuit is best accomplished by using a
cookie scoop, as I did. Seriously, this went together in no time at all. I had it with a spinach and strawberry salad, and enjoyed myself tremendously. More party food is in my future, I guarantee!
Cheesy Spinach Pull-Apart Bread with Hearts of Palm

8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature 
½ c. finely chopped Melissa’s Hearts of Palm 
½ c. finely chopped baby spinach
1 c. shredded mozzarella, divided
½ c. freshly grated Parmesan
   1 t. minced garlic
¼ t. red pepper flakes
Pinch kosher salt
  Freshly ground black pepper
 tube Pillsbury refrigerated biscuit dough
Fresh or dried parsley, for garnish

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9"-x-5" loaf pan with PAM; set aside. 

In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, hearts of palm, spinach, ½ cup mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.

Cut each biscuit in half horizontally.
Using a cookie scoop, dollop 2 tablespoons of the dip mixture onto one side of each biscuit half.
Stack biscuits so that there is a layer of dip between each biscuit, leaving the ends plain.

Place your biscuit stack into prepared loaf pan. Cover with foil and bake 45 minutes. Remove from oven and remove foil. 
Brush with butter, sprinkle with remaining mozzarella, and bake 15 minutes more, until biscuits are golden and cheese is melted.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan, and carefully remove. Garnish with parsley and serve.

I seldom buy white bread type products and have actually never bought Pillsbury biscuits. We try to use whole grain and unprocessed foods. However, this appetizer looks AMAZING! I'm pinning this and will be making it for my next party. This is awesome. said...
