Quick Skillet Bread

I just tried this recipe yesterday and it was great! Its from a food friend named Knoxcop. She is a master baker, so I knew the recipe would be delicious! This bread would be perfect to use with biscuits and gravy! You can add any topping you like! I added crispy fried smoked pork pieces!
