  1. Simple & delicious! Forgot to wrap the cheese in the biscuits but with it sprinkled on top, I'm sure it didn't take anything away from this recipe. Dear BF said it was good! Will definitely make it again. Thank you for posting!
  2. We really loved this! The only thing I changed, was that I put shredded cheddar cheese on top of the biscuits instead of inside...But we loved the flavor and the ease of preparation was wonderful for me! We will definitely make this again, as my kids cleaned their plates! Thanks for sharing this, Sugar! :)
