Mini Biscuits - Some Inspiration for Your Obligation

Mini Biscuits Hors d' oeurves
Mini Biscuits Hors d' oeurves

You just got your third invitation to a pot-luck Ugly Sweater/White Elephant/Yankee Swap holiday party and between the cards, shopping, wrapping and decorating you're creatively zapped. Enter... Mini Biscuits!

If you want to bring a different kind of appetizer or hors d'ouevres for your obligatory holiday parties this year, try making "Mini Biscuits" from our Cream Cheese Biscuits. They're easier to work with than phyllo dough and a tasty alternative to puff pastry. And since one box of Cream Cheese Biscuits will make 96 one-bite appetizers (yes...96!) it's also pretty economical. It all depends on your topping choices. You can go simple, like a piece of sausage with whole grain mustard, or you can go all the way to indulgent - with scrambled egg and caviar.

Chef Michael Gagné (aka the Biscuit Boss) has created a list of yummy toppings to inspire you. We'll be happy to send you a detailed recipe for any of these recipes that spark your interest, just comment below with your request!

To prepare Mini Biscuits:

Preheat conventional oven to 350 degrees. Place frozen biscuits on a lightly floured cutting board. Allow to thaw for about 10 minutes. When slightly soft, cut biscuits into quarters. Then cut each quarter in half, yielding 8 squares of dough per biscuit. Bake for about 12 minutes until biscuits are light golden brown.
