These simple morsels are loaded with flavor. Better yet, you will not believe how easy they are to make! I don’t often use processed products, but make an exception here for the convenience. Serve them with your favorite olive oil or marinara sauce and you will just love these heavenly bits of bread. Easy Italian Bites are perfect for a buffet, tailgating, or your Super Bowl crowd. These are quick and inexpensive to make and will dress up any snack, meal, or bowl of soup. One recipe will yield 32 good-sized pieces so it is crowd-friendly too! Even better, kids love them as they fit the finger-food prerequisite most of them crave. Whenever, wherever, or however you serve them, get ready to make them again and again!
1 package of large, refrigerator, buttermilk biscuits
(Refrigerated package should contain 8 biscuits. This will yield 32 servings.)
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons each dried basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme and black pepper
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 375˚. Cut the butter into pieces and place in the 9 x 13 pan in the oven to melt. Once it is melted add the oil and sprinkle the spices into the melted butter and oil. Spread the mixture evenly in the bottom of your pan. Cut each of the eight biscuits into 4 equal wedges. Place all the wedges in the melted butter mixture. Stir gently to coat the wedges and spread out the pieces evenly in your pan. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the oven from the pan. Stir gently and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Serve with your favorite flavored olive oil or marinara sauce. This recipe makes 32 bites. If you use regular sized biscuits this recipe will yield 48 smaller pieces. Either way = delicious!
