Authentic Suburban Gourmet: Savory Cheddar and Thyme Whole Wheat Mini Biscuits

Read Time:2 Minute, 33 Second

As many of you know, I relish my Fridays, especially the
moment work ends and the weekend begins.
Hubby and I celebrate the launch of the weekend with Friday Night
Bites.  A few nibbles, a bottle of wine,
good conversation and a time to either chill with our favorite television shows
or time with friends.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of hosting three other
couples over at our house for Friday Night Bites.  I treasure these hosting opportunities and
love opening our house to entertain friends and simply enjoy each others
company.  Everyone arrived on time with
divine hostess gifts that were completely unexpected and will be
cherished.  We are a “shoeless” house and
everyone simply kicked them off and we were popping corks on wine bottles
within ten minutes – my kind of party.

One of the gals I had met a few weeks prior at an impromptu Friday
night gathering at her house.  We got to
talking and soon realized that she had recently pinned this recipe and was
simply flattered that she had been a fan of my blog for quite sometime.  I write and share recipes here, but with the
vast internet, you never know exactly who is enjoying your blog.  Nice to connect with a real live reader, plus
she and I had so much in common; it will be great to gather again.

The one appetizer that I did not have time to make was these
Savory Cheddar and Thyme Whole Wheat Mini Biscuits. 
I made them with whole wheat flour and they were simply divine.  I actually served them with my Balsamic Fig Jam.  I would recommend serving with your favorite sparkling
wine or a crisp Rose. Trust me, you will not be able to stop at eating just one
of these.
