  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Pour melted butter into a small bowl. Dip each piece of biscuit dough in melted butter to coat.
  3. Arrange enough of the biscuit dough pieces in the bottom of the loaf pan to form a single layer; top with 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup pepper slices, and 1/4 teaspoon parsley. Repeat layering once and top with remaining biscuit dough pieces, pepper slices, and parsley flakes.
  4. Mix remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese together in a bowl; spread over the top of the ingredients to cover.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool bread in pan for 5 minutes before inverting onto a plate to serve.

This was OK...as one reviewer mentioned, too dry. And I added more cheese in hopes it would alleviate the dry factor but it fell short.

So this is just a plateful of sinful goodness. It hits all my pleasure points for decadent snacking. Soft chewy bread! Gooy melty cheese! Bright spicy peppers! What's not to love.... excep...

Another great recipe bfr610, thank you! I found a can of biscuits in the fridge and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I thought the taste of this would compliment a large dinner salad ...

Nice recipe, I really like this. I followed advice to cut in to eights, not quarters and tossed them in a bowl full of melted butter. Combinations of fillers are endless.

This was really good. I made some modifications to suit what I had - made my own biscuits, used cheddar and cotija cheeses, and cilantro instead of parsley. Will make again for sure!

My family loves this and it is so quick to make. I use Marzetti's "tamed" jalapenos (drained) which are wonderful. This goes great with a brothy soup on a cold day.

Love it! I added some crumbled hot sausage, (about 1/2 lb). It was done in 30 min. I'll be making this again.

I was afraid using all that jalapeno pepper would make it way too spicy, so I cut it in half. Actually, when I make it again, I'll use the amount of jalapeno called for, as it wasn't very hot a...

Cooking time was about 40 mins.
