BLUE CHEESE BISCUITS

January 27, 2018

Some people love it; some people hate it. Blue cheese is polarizing. I’m very into it. (Not at first, you have to try.) This biscuit recipe is like a biscuit and roll hybrid.

It’s got yeast! You’ll like it.

And if the blue cheese is polarizing you, just skip it and use this recipe to make some real good classic biscuits.
