Bleu Cheese Biscuit Donuts

OK, I’m moving this amazing recipe to the blog page so it’s searchable and easier to find, because we’ve had SOOOOOOOO MANY people asking for it.  Enjoy!

BLEU CHEESE BISCUIT DONUTS

1 package large/grand refrigerated biscuits (you know, the Pop-the-tube-against-your-counter kind)
4 ounces bleu cheese crumbles
honey for drizzling
a dab of butter

Cut refrigerator biscuits in quarters

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Pop the biscuit roll against your counter (I just LOVE doing that).  Then cut each biscuit into quarters.

Nestle the biscuits together haphazardly

Lightly butter a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Place the quartered biscuits around the bottom of the 9 x 13 dish nestling them pretty snuggly together (do NOT reassemble the biscuits they should be in a sort of haphazard pattern).

Scatter the cheese crumbles across the top.  Make sure the bleu cheese crumbles get into any gap between biscuit pieces.  Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits are browned.bake per instructions
Take the pan out of the oven, let cool a few minutes then drizzle the top of the whole shebang with honey.  This is a great appetizer (my friend Alexandra calls them Bleu Cheese Biscuit Donuts).  Or a yummy side dish to a main course salad (like poached pears, bacon and arugula).  These Bleu Cheese Biscuits are highly addictive, so it’s a good thing they are easy to make.

Not only is this a great recipe, it’s an awesome technique!  Don’t have Bleu Cheese and honey?  No problem.  Put the biscuits in the baking dish, then brush the top with your favorite jarred pesto and sprinkle parmesan on top.  OR brush the top of the biscuits with a nice, fruity olive oil, then sprinkle Feta cheese and Kalamata olives on top.  You are limited ONLY by your imagination (try sprinkling grated cheddar, bacon bits and green onions on top – mmmmmmmmmmmmmm).
