These bites are QUICK to throw together, especially if you realize at the last minute that you need an appetizer for the people that are coming over SOON. Feel free to experiment with different CHEESES, and don't worry if you need to skip out on the marinara sauce. These little babies stand on their own! Look for this recipe and many others in my upcoming book, 101 Things To Do With Cheese.
1 (16-ounce) tube jumbo buttermilk refrigerator biscuits
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon basil or oregano
5-6 tablespoons butter, melted
Marinara sauce, for dipping (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut each biscuit into fourths; set aside. Combine the cheese and seasonings; set aside. Dip each biscuit in the melted butter and then roll in the cheese mixture. Bake for 10-12 minutes on a baking sheet prepared with nonstick spray, or until golden brown. Serve warm with marinara sauce on the side. Makes 6-8 servings.
TIP: I often double the cheese mixture because I'm totally obsessed with cheese and want to make sure every last possible biscuit is completely coated with the stuff. Feel free to do the same!
