Semi-Homemade Cheddar Biscuits

For me, weekends are all about decadent breakfasts. During the work week, I typically make something quick and healthy like a smoothie, oatmeal, or chia seed pudding, but on the weekend, I like to take my time cooking and eating. Banana buckwheat pancakes and scones are regular favorites, because #carbs. Occasionally we have morning events scheduled (which I try to avoid) and I'm not able to spend a long time cooking. Merle and I still want a rich breakfast though, so I opt for semi-homemade baked goods. The pre made buttermilk biscuits in the pop open tube in the refrigerated section of the grocery store bake quickly, making them a great fit for expedited weekend mornings. To make them worthy of a Saturday or Sunday breakfast, I drown them in cheddar cheese and herbs. I didn't say this would be a healthy recipe ;) The added layer of flavor takes the biscuits from bland to brunch worthy in minutes. Pillsbury makes the most widely available refrigerated biscuits, but I prefer the Trader Joe's version with fewer artificial ingredients. Either way, it will be hard to eat just one of these tasty biscuits.
