You only need a few items to make these cheesy biscuits, and with kids in the house you surely have the most important one…string cheese!! My kids LOVE string cheese (ok, I do too). As a snack, in their lunchbox, and their perfect when we’re on the go for picnics or during a long day of sporting events. You will need to grab a few to “stuff” inside these biscuits, they turn out amazing! Let your little helper assist you with this several parts of this recipe.
Take out your package of Disney® Frozen String Cheese and let them open 4 of them (ok and snack on a few during the process). If you haven’t seen these fun versions of cheese yet you can find them in your Walmart dairy case, there’s a coupon for $1 off here + some fun activities for them to do while the biscuits are baking too!
My littlest one had just returned from school where they had a jog a thon, so after she had one for herself she got to unwrapping 4 more to make our easy cheese biscuit recipe together. I have 3 girls so Disney® Frozen String Cheese is quite popular in our house. They usually don’t last long since each one takes their lunch to school. It’s a perfect addition to their lunch boxes as string cheese gets calcium and protein in them and tastes yummy (I even snack on them throughout the day, but don’t tell them). Now cut each piece into fourths and we’re going to stuff our biscuits full of garlic, butter, and cheese!
You want to flatten your refrigerated biscuit out with your hands and then position the 2 pieces of cut string cheese side to side as you see above. Then, add a bit of your softened butter and garlic mixture inside so it’s stuffed with tons of flavor. Next, press the edges together well so it resembles a half moon or an empanada shape. Make sure the edges are tightly pressed together, you could even put it on your cutting board and use a fork on the edges to ensure they don’t come apart in the baking process. Then brush the melted butter and garlic mixture on top of your biscuits and put a dash of basil on top for a bit more flavor and color. Now they’re ready for the oven!
