A few tips are useful here. Use cold butter and non-dairy milk. Never mix your wet ingredients until your oven is pre-heated and ready to go.

When cutting the dough into rounds for the biscuit, do not twist the cutter. And finally, when placing the biscuits on the baking tray, make sure they touch one another. This will help them rise even faster in the oven.

Again, you can substitute all sorts of traditional toppings that you may not like. Even the jalapenos are optional. It is possible to put on another herb or spice of your choice. If you do not care for olive oil, you can use a different type of oil—one with a texture that is more to your liking.

Changing toppings is certainly understandable. Some people just like the texture of cheesy bread but do not care for some of the traditional toppings. The most important thing is to bake the bread so that it has a crusty finish. This will yield the most taste regardless of the specific toppings you put on it.

If you want to make this bread for yourself rather than a house full of guests, you can cut the quantities of the ingredients in the recipe by half. You can also use vegan cheddar instead of regular cheddar for a topping.

Cauliflower, when added to dishes like this, has a distinct taste. It will complement the cheese well and leave all your visitors with a smile on their face.

You should use cauliflower that is highly fine. You want the cheddar and jalapenos to dominate the taste of your bread, not the cauliflower. For a paleo version of this dish, use paleo-friendly baking powder. If you want a dairy-free version of it, leave out the cheese. If you want a vegetarian version, leave out the bacon.
