Black Pepper, Scallion, and Cheese Biscuits

Our classic biscuit recipe gets the all-star treatment with the addition of scallions, monterey jack cheese, and freshly ground black pepper. The resulting biscuits are cheesy, spicy, and aromatic. These tender, flaky biscuits taste great on their own, but would also work well in breakfast sandwiches or with gravy spooned over the top.
