  1. This recipe and all of your others look mouth watering cant wait to try them out on my southern family.

  2. Are the biscuits the regular size or smaller ones?

  3. This works with biscuits made from Bisquick, too. Just make the dough, roll it thinner than usual, and cut out the circles to fill. I love this blend of cheeses and other goodies! I’m on the way to the kitchen as we speak! Merry Christmas to all!

  4. Puff pastry would be good also. Sounds yummy

  5. This was a great recipe, but can I suggest that you note what size biscuits to use, such as the large and flaky size or the regular size. I used this recipe in a cooking workshop that I teach and I try them at home first, and since the kids really wanted to make this one I couldn’t nix it just because I did not know exactly what size of something was suppose to be. Needless to say, we did find that using two of the regular sized cans of biscuits worked well and the kids loved the results of the recipe. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  6. Can these be formed and refrigerated for baking next day. Or cooked and reheated?

  7. Oh my goodness these are delish! made these for my daughters housewarming party yesterday, they were a HUGE hit! would not change a thing. I did make the cheese filling 1 day in advance. The day of the party I assembled the cheese bombs early morning and refrigerated till I was ready, later that day.

  8. It looks like the biscuits have another herb mixed in as well as topped over the cheese. can you shed some light on what this ingredient is?

  9. Looks good though I would would not use the one I would use a substitute.
