Add cream cheese– Add a spoonful of cream cheese, along with the Colby cheese cube for an even creamier center.
Include other add-ins– Like cooked meat such as shredded chicken, turkey, bacon, or pulled pork or ground beef.
Add other seasoning– Sprinkle a seasoning blend on top of the cheese. Try Italian, Cajun, Greek, or Mexican seasoning.
Add finely chopped jalapenos– For a spicy kick. Deseed them to keep the heat level low.
Mix in caramelized onions– For a savory yet slightly sweet flavor addition.
Tips And Techniques
Seam-side must be face down on the baking tray– This is very important because if it’s facing the side or the top, the buns will burst during baking and make a mess.
Homemade garlic butter– Simply mix together 4 tbsp butter with 1 tsp garlic powder and 1 tsp. Italian seasoning (optional). You can also use store-bought garlic butter, if you are short on time.
Grand style biscuits have to be used– The other sizes are too small and the cheese will keep leaking out.
Seams of the dough must be pinched tight– Because this prevents the cheese from melting out and making a mess.
Don’t over-bake– The cheese will melt out of the biscuits if you do and the buns will become dry.
How do you know when they are done? They are ready to be removed from the oven when tops and sides are light golden brown.
How big should you cut the cubes of cheese? They should be about 3/4inch – 1 inch in size. If they are too big, the cheese will leak out. If you cut them too small, you won’t really taste it.
Line tray with parchment paper- Because this prevents the buns from sticking to the tray and makes cleanup easier too.
Refrigerate– Although they taste best when served immediately, they can be stored in a sealed container for up to 2 days.
Freeze- I don’t recommend freezing because the texture is just not the same when thawed and reheated.
Reheat– In the microwave or oven.
