  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a 9 inch pie plate.

Cut each biscuit into quarters and place in the pie plate with the butter. I like to toss the biscuits in the butter so that the sides of the biscuits get coated in butter. Sprinkle the blue cheese (feta or goat) over the biscuits. If desired sprinkle with fresh cilantro or parsley. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and bubbly. Watch closely!

Serve with toothpicks or mini appetizer forks.
