Blue Cheese Pull Apart Biscuits is a hot, cheesy, bubbly appetizer that only has THREE INGREDIENTS! It’s the perfect snack for your next social gathering.
Blue Cheese Biscuits! There are some food that will follow you out childhood and will stay with you forever. This recipe is my tribute to just that, my favorite snack as a child. For many years, I would spend day after day with our next door neighbor. Grandma Kay was a lovely lady and her and her husband never seemed to mind when I came knocking on their door. See, their grandchildren were far away and this was back in the day when it was a big deal to be offered a dollar to sweep off a driveway. I also learned what ‘Hoochie Coochie Girls’ were thanks to watching lots of Benny Hill and Dance Fever episodes on their back porch.
The ’80’s were a lot more relaxed when it came to TV and parental supervision 🙂
But my favorite thing was when Grandma Kay would make me Blue Cheese snacks. They were simple and perfect and gobbled them up faster than she could make them. She took canned biscuits and cut them into quarters and then sprinkled on blue cheese crumbles on them. Then she poured melted butter over them and cooked them and they were the perfect part of my day. Hot and salty, oooey gooey with butter.. a fat kids dream come true!! They were a kind and loving couple and showed me so much love when my own grandparents lived so far away. They took me to the beach and taught me how to play Domino’s… and let’s not forget about the Hoochie Coochie Girls.
Spending my days with them is truly one of my favorite childhood memories to look back on.
Fast forward XXX years and This Girl is here with you, yakking about food! I will still break out Grandma Kay’s blue cheese biscuits when the mood hits me and since Big Scary Mike doesn’t share the same love for them as I do, I embrace my piggy piggy foo foo side and eat as many of them as I can until I am about to bust.
Of course, I tell Mike that at least half of biscuit bites were fed to the puppies to uphold the illusion of feminine delicacy but he knows better. He’s met me before.
But it’s a long time from 1981 and there are some improvements that can be made to Grandma Kay’s recipe. The sprinkle of blue cheese was good back then but more is sometimes better. The struggle is keeping the blue cheese crumbles on top of a tiny piece of biscuit. I end up with more cheese on my sheet pan than I do on my biscuit.
Forget little pieces lined up on a pan.. we are going Mega Biscuit mode!! I still cut of the biscuits into quarters but then I piled them into a pie pan. The blue cheese had no where to run to!!!!
If you are not a blue cheese fan, you can also do this recipe with sharp cheddar, feta or whatever your favorite cheese is. It’s also a fast, delicious appetizer that is easy to bring together for your next social gathering.
Psst… Now that we are friends, don’t you think we should spend some more time together? That’s what besties do, right? Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest .. and yup, even Instagram!
- 16 oz can of refrigerated flaky biscuits
- 6 tbl melted butter
- 4 oz - 8oz of blue cheese crumbles (depending on how much you love blue cheese!)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Remove the biscuits from the can and place on a cutting board. Cut each biscuit into quarters.
Place butter into a microwave safe bowl and heat on High for 1 minute. Remove bowl from microwave and move to work station
Dunk each biscuit piece into the melted butter then place into a 9" pie pan (or a large loaf pan)
Dunk and stuff each biscuit piece into the pan forming a single layer
Cover the entire surface of the biscuits with the blue cheese and then pour any remaining melted butter on top as well
Bake for 25 minutes.. check on your biscuits at the 20 minute mark .. if the outside is starting to brown but the inside doesn't appear done enough, cover the outer edge of biscuits with strips of tinfoil or parchment paper so that they don't burn while the center continues to cook
Once done, remove and serve immediately
