You won’t be able to say no to these bison biscuits! This recipe has a few steps but they’re absolutely delicious and worth the time they take. The layering of bison, biscuit dough and cheese is a match made in flavour heaven. You’ll need a mini muffin tin, but since they are mini, you can eat many! Another great addition to the holiday entertaining menu.
