Different Types and Advice
You can try different types of cheese like cheddar and pepper jack, they both taste great. You can also put a little bacon or a small spoonful of your favorite jam to give it a sweet and savory flavor. To add some extra flavor, combine red pepper flakes with the garlic powder. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can quickly make a substitute by mixing milk with lemon juice.
