I used "Grands" buttermilk biscuits for this recipe and it was entirely too much bread and not enough meat. Taste was a little bland but that can be doctored up. The amount of bread was the issue that I could not look past.

Made these for my buddies on card night. All of them said I could make them again anytime. I use them as my testers, so I mixed them up with different kinds of cheese in them. All passed.

I added tomato paste, jalapeno, sharp cheddar and a little hickory salt. My husband gobbled them up! I will definitely keep this handy!
