Meatless Monday: Garlic Cheddar Biscuits


I debated sharing this recipe.  It’s not original.  It’s not even homemade.  It is, however, crave-worthy.  A client fell for these biscuits at a corporate breakfast and requested the recipe.  Imagine our surprise when asked to bake directly from the back of a Bisquick box.

But good food is good food and these biscuits are good.

Kerrygold makes a perfectly balanced garlic and herb compound butter which you can use instead of the homemade butter wash.   Semi-homemade the Bisquick and Irish butter way!

These are best served hot and fluffy just before breakfast or split and toasted with a fried egg on top.


Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

Makes about 16-18 biscuits


Butter, for lining the baking sheets, plus 3 tablespoons for brushing biscuits

1 clove garlic minced

1 teaspoon dill, finely chopped

1 teaspoon parsley, finely chopped

1 teaspoon basil. finely chopped

4 cups bisquick baking mix

1 1/3 cups whole milk

2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.  Butter and line 2 baking sheets.

In a small saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons butter.  Add in the garlic and herbs and let steep while you make the biscuits.

Combine mix, milk and cheddar in a bowl by hand.

Use your palm to pat biscuit dough out on a lightly floured surface until about 1-1/2-inches thick.  Cut with a biscuit cutter or the top of a juice glass, patting scraps together as needed to use all the dough.  Brush cut biscuits lightly with melted garlic herb butter.
Bake until puffy and light golden brown, about 18-20 minutes.

Brush again with melted garlic butter and serve immediately.

    Ha I’m shocked, but I’m sure they’re delicious! They serve them at Bubby’s for brunch and they’re so hard to resist especially when warm 🙂
