Nutty Avocado Cheese Bites


1 (16.3-oz) Pillsbury® Grands! Homestyle Butter Tastin refrigerated biscuits (8 ct)
4 tablespoons butter, melted

NUTTY MIXTURE
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup almonds sliced and broken into smaller pieces
1/2 cup dried onions
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

FILLING
4 oz cream cheese, softened
l large avocado, sliced
salt (or omit salt and add bacon for a fun twist)

Heat oven to 350º F. In a small bowl combine the sunflower seeds, almonds, dried onions, and poppy seeds. Set aside. Cut each biscuit into quarters and then roll to form a ball. Dip each ball in butter and then into the nutty mixture. Place on an un-greased large baking pan. Bake at 350º F. for 6-10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes. Slice each biscuit in half horizontally. Spread the inside of the bottom half with 1 ½ teaspoons of cream cheese. Add excess nuts found on the baking pan on top of the cheese layer. Place an avocado slice on top of the cream cheese layer and sprinkle with salt. Replace the top half of the biscuit. Serve immediately.

Yield: 8 servings (4 biscuit bites per serving)

From The Other Half,

These are SERIOUSELY good! I didn't like avocado in the past, then my other half made these and completely changed my mind. In other words try these out on someone that doesn’t like avocado! They may love you (and avocados) for it.
