Recently I was given a large block of cheddar cheese. A very large block. So I have been searching for recipes that require cheddar cheese in order to use up all the cheese. I came across a delicious and easy cheese biscuit recipe on allrecipes.com, submitted by Brenda. The original recipe can be found here.
The recipe is so quick to whip up and taste very similar to the cheese biscuits served at Red Lobster. I made some modifications to the original recipe. I put in a lot more cheese than the recipe called for (I need to get rid of all the cheese!), and less butter than the recipe called for (since the butter is only used to be brushed on at the end). Even with all the extra cheese I used, I didn't think the cheese taste was overwhelming in the biscuit. Here is my modified recipe:
Serving: Recipe makes approximately ten biscuits.
- 2 cups Bisquick baking mix
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1/8 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
To shred the cheese, I used my food processor. It was amazing how quickly it shredded my cheese!
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
Combine bisquick, milk and cheddar cheese in mixing bowl. Mix with
wooden spoon till soft dough forms.
Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
Mix melted butter and garlic powder and brush over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet.
