Cheesy Garlic Bites

unnamed

Ingredients

  • 2 cans buttermilk biscuits (not the flaky kind)
  • 20 balls mozzarella fresca ciliegine (cherry size) or mozzarella cut into cubes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • salt and basil to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Open the can of biscuits. Flatten each biscuit. Drain the liquid from the container of fresh mozzarella. Place a mozzarella ball in the center and wrap the dough around it to form a ball.

Heat olive oil over medium low heat in a skillet. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add in the butter and stir until melted. Slowly pour in the wine and salt (it may splatter) and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes.

Roll the dough balls into the butter.

Place the balls in a mini muffin pan (open side up)

Combine the shredded cheeses and pile on each dough ball.

Bake in a 450-degree oven for 8-10 minutes.

Remove from oven. Brush with remaining garlic butter. Sprinkle with salt and basil to taste. Serve warm.
