Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

For a lighter and fluffier bread (as compared to the Bacon & Cheddar Scones), here’s another cheesy recipe.  I’m seriously considering trying adding bacon to this recipe… what could possibly go wrong?  Actually, I want to try a few changes to this… actual roasted minced garlic in the batter itself, along with some green onions, maybe some rosemary, AND bacon bits…now that sounds like a damn good fluffy biscuit recipe.  Will update with results after, y’know, I have the results.

  • 2 c. flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 to 1.5 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 c. milk
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic salt

Preheat oven to 400 F.  Spray cooking sheet with nonstick spray.

In bowl of stand mixer, combine all ingredients except milk.

Add milk; stir until combined.  Add a little more milk if necessary, but don’t go crazy with it (the dough should be able to hold things upright if you stick something in the top).

Use Tbs or large spoon to scoop up lumps of batter; use regular spoon to shove batter off first spoon onto baking sheet.

Place in oven and set timer for 10 minutes.

Melt 2 Tbs butter and stir in oregano and garlic salt.  After 10-minute timer goes off, brush butter mixture over each biscuit, then cook for an additional 6 minutes, or until lightly browned.  If desired (or if you still have melted butter mixture left over) re-brush garlic-herb butter over biscuits a second time.
