Above and Beyond Biscuits
Looking for something a bit heartier? We’re continuing our coverage on one of our favorite items: Pepper and Onion Relish, with photography courtesy of Kellie Hemmerly of the Suburban Soapbox. This time, it’s a delicious pepper and onion cheesy biscuits recipe, which makes a perfect side-dish to accompany your main course at dinner, or as an appetizer that’s a bit more filling.
So what makes these cheesy biscuits so good? Pepper and Onion relish (we used Harry & David Pepper and Onion Relish), which adds a zesty “zing” to the normal cheese flavor. It’s a combination of sweet and spicy that blends so well you’d think these biscuits were always meant to be eaten this way. The secret? Instead of topping store-bought biscuits with your favorite condiments, take it one step further and bake that relish and cheese into the biscuits themselves.
You don’t even need butter or jam when you’ve got a biscuit that brings its own cheesy, relish flavor baked inside. If you like this biscuit recipe, be sure to check out a few other uses for pepper and onion relish, now used in appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Yum.
