Oatmeal Pull Apart Rolls

My husband grew up in a home where bread was a staple of every meal.

Don’t get me wrong, I like bread, but I can’t do it with every meal.

However, we try to compromise and I try to make sure there’s some sort of loaf or rolls, at least for him, as part of his dinner.

When Money Saving Mom originally posted this recipe, I tried it that very night and it’s been a regular part of the cast of characters for dinner ever since.

I love these because they’re very little work, especially while I’m preparing the rest of the meal, yet they’re incredibly moist and fluffy.

The oatmeal also adds an extra boost of nutrients to fortify my guys.

Besides, nothing beats rolls fresh from your own oven. That I can get behind at any meal!

If you want an easy bread recipe to serve with dinner, then these oatmeal pull apart rolls fit the bill perfectly!

Grilled Three Cheese Potatoes

I originally discovered these grilled three cheese potatoes in a Taste of Home list of easy grill meals.

After briefly scanning the ingredients and directions, I knew I had to try it, and it was love at first bite.

Creamy, cheesy, bacon-y…what better elements to build a mouth-watering side-dish for any meal? 

These potatoes are delicious, and equally easy to prepare and cook. We love having them any evening we grill out.

They’re great for just our family’s dinner, or I can easily double the recipe, making a second batch, to feed a larger crowd. I’ve also found that these make a great, easy side-dish for camping meals.

Even better, use this recipe as a guideline and get creative in your kitchen, or backyard.

These potatoes have plenty of potential possibilities. Try adding broccoli. We also make, and love, a sweet potato version based off of this recipe.

Whether you decide to stick to the original, or spice your potato packet up a little, you can’t go wrong with these cheese potatoes.
