An easy combination of herbs and spices transforms plain biscuits into something special! These biscuits are oven-ready in five minutes, and are a delicious accompaniment to any meal. In my house, they're cause for arguments over who gets the last few pieces!
1 - 12 oz tube buttermilk biscuits, cut into quarters
1/4 C (4 Tbsp) melted margarine OR butter
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 Tbsp parsley
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix together the melted margarine, Parmesan cheese, and all herbs/spices. Place half of the biscuit quarters into a mixing bowl. Drizzle half the margarine/spice mixture over top, and repeat. Stir together carefully, and transfer to an ungreased 8 or 9 inch round cake pan. Bake, uncovered, at 450 degrees for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown. Invert onto a large dinner plate and serve immediately.
Options and Tips:
- Cutting up biscuits with a kitchen scissors is a perfect job for the kids!
- When you are stirring the biscuit pieces with the margarine/spice mixture, the biscuit pieces will start sticking together. They don't all have to be separated, but if there's a solid block of a bunch of them, the margarine mixture won't get between the pieces...so use a fork to separate a few of them. Just make sure that each piece has at least a little bit of the spice mixture on it.
This is a slightly-modified version of a recipe I received from my sister-in-law, Jill Kregel.
