This Blue Cheese Bites are made with butter, biscuit dough, blue cheese, parsley, and baked to perfection.
I usually would say to make your own biscuit dough, but for this recipe, buying store bought is the way to go – nothing wrong with a short cut. This is a great appetizer and it is always a crowd pleaser.
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this. The exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below. Here's an overview of what you'll need:
- Salted butter
- Biscuit dough
- Blue cheese
See recipe card for Blue Cheese Bites quantities.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut the discs of dough into quarters.
Place the butter in a 9-inch glass pie plate and microwave to melt.
Place the pieces in the pie plate and toss to coat in the butter. Sprinkle blue cheese on top over the dough, as well as the parsley.
Bake until the top is golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
- Butter: The recipe calls for salted butter, although if you only have unsalted, but make sure to mix salt into the melted butter.
- Biscuit dough: I used the regular Pillsbury brand for the biscuit dough you can find in the dairy section.
- Blue Cheese: I recommend using the already crumbled blue cheese as it tends to be less “stinky.” Please either love or hate blue cheese. For those of you who don’t like blue cheese, feel free to use feta cheese.
- Parsley: I used fresh parsley although you can also use thyme instead. If you would rather use dried parsley or thyme, that would work but just use less.
Cooking is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation.
- Spicy - add chili pepper flakes in with the parsley for a spicy kick.
- Kid friendly - use cream cheese instead of blue cheese.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
