Savory Cheese Biscuit Recipe from Gooseberry Patch's "Weeknight Dinners"

Rustic Cheese Biscuit Recipe

Rolls are one of my favorite things about going out to eat at a restaurant.  Almost all of them bring you a basket of rolls or biscuits, loaves of bread, or bread sticks.  Some have great flavored butters or provide you with dipping sauces.  No matter the form or the accouterments  it’s always good.

We do try and serve a few of our own bread sides with our meals at home, too.  Usually it’s heat-and-serve rolls or garlic bread, homemade cornbread, or on occasion a homemade loaf of bread.  One thing I’ve wanted to try that I hadn’t so far, though, were cheese biscuits.  They are a family-favorite when we go out to eat (Ashley says she could live on them) and I hoped that any homemade variety that I tried would be similar in taste.

Then I found this Savory Cheese Biscuit recipe in the new “Weeknight Dinners” cookbook from Gooseberry Patch.  The recipe was submitted to the cookbook by J.C. Schmeltekopf and they are extremely fast and easy to make.  They’re also really good.  Hubby had one and said, “Hey that’s good”.  Five minutes later he was saying, “Hey that’s really good” and kept commenting on them throughout the night.  Always a good sign!

Savory Cheese Biscuits
  • 2 C biscuit baking mix
  • ½ C shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1½ tsp. dried parsley
  • ⅛ tsp. garlic salt
  • ⅔ C milk
  • 2 T butter, melted
  • ⅛ tsp. garlic powder
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl combine biscuit mix, cheese, parsley, and garlic salt.
  3. Stir in milk and mix until dough pulls together.
  4. Drop by heaping tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 10-15 minutes until golden.
  6. Meanwhile combine melted butter and garlic powder in a small bowl.
  7. Remove biscuits from oven; brush melted garlic butter over biscuits.
  8. Return to oven; bake 1 additional minute and remove from oven.
  9. Serve warm.

The original recipe suggests rolling the dough out, cutting them with a round biscuit cutter, and then placing them in a greased muffin tin to bake.  I’m sure they’re great like that but I prefer mine to be a bit more rustic so I just dropped them by the spoonful.  It also calls for 1/4 cup of melted butter and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder but I had a lot of butter leftover so I halved it for you.  You can certainly make the original amount if you’d like.

I’d love to give you a copy of “Weeknight Dinners” so that you can try some of the other yummy recipes it contains.  I know the next one on my list to try is the Chicken Tetrazzini.  Giveaway closed.
