Blue Ribbon Recipe

Savory and cheesy, these jalapeno and cheddar biscuits are seriously delicious. Stuffed with jalapenos and savory cheese, they're flaky, tender, and melt in your mouth. We love basting them in egg wash because it makes the top of the biscuits slightly crisp. The perfect biscuit for any occasion. They'd make a great base for a breakfast sandwich and delicious sopping up gravy at dinner. We served ours with a little butter and honey for the perfect sweet and spicy combo.
