I think I’ve mentioned before that my boyfriend loves all things meat and potatoes. The problem, sometimes, is finding things to go with meat and potatoes, or as my sons say, “sides.”
“What sides are we having with the steak tonight, Mom?” is an example of a frequently asked question at my house. Even if dinner is a slow cooker or one-dish meal, they want to know what “sides” will be served to complement the main dish.
Their favorite side dish usually comes in the form of bread or rolls. They love garlic bread, cornbread, homemade beer bread, rolls with butter and really any kind of bread you could name.
I knew we’d end up making this recipe when I saw it was a combination of bread…and CHEESE. Now, it had all their favorite ingredients.
Plus, it’s quick and easy to make. They can pretty much do it themselves. It’s a delicious side dish (just don’t forget the vegetables) for a stay-at-home-meal on a Friday night.
