Combination of cheeses and herbs
Chopped fresh vegetables (onions, jalapenos, peppers)
1. Cheese. Any combination – I use a blend of aged cheddar, Parmesan and jalapeno jack.
2. Onion and peppers. The colour sells the biscuit.
3. Pizza style with tomato paste and feta with spinach. Cut and chop the ingredients in, and scoop and bake.
