The base dough is alreaddy full of savoury onion or mushroom soup and grated cheese. The butter being grated helps with the extra crunch between all of the added savoury goodies. You can add finely chopped onion, biltong, bacon, green peppers or even mushrooms into the mix. Remember to test out the seasoning for these salty biscuits. They can store for quite a while in an air-tight container but they’re so good, you wont need to store them for too long.
