Homemade Cheddar Biscuits

    This recipe is easy to make and the biscuits turn out tasty, buttery, cheesy and flaky.  It is perfect for all cheese lovers.  Each bite is perfect.  It will not disappoint.

  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 c. milk or buttermilk
  • ½- ¾ c. shredded cheese (sharp or mild cheddar, Colby Jack, etc.)
  • 1 stick of cold butter
  • 1 lg. egg, beaten
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 T. onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. salt

Shred or grate the butter and place it into the refrigerator or freezer.  The butter needs to be cold to produce the flaky layers that you desire in a biscuit.  It helps the biscuits have the perfect texture and rise. 

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, garlic powder and salt.  Stir then stir in the cheese, onion and parsley. Stir to incorporate them and get them coated.  Then using a pastry blender, blend in the cold butter. If you don’t have a pastry blender, you can use 2 forks.  Do not overmix.  The mix should be coarse.  You are just getting everything mixed together. 

In a small bowl, beat together the egg and milk then pour it into the dough.  Mix well. Pour out onto a floured surface and knead the dough for about 2 minutes.  The dough will be sticky but not so sticky that it sticks to your hands.  Your fingers should not have dough stuck to it.  If the dough is too sticky add just a bit of flour.  Just be sure you do not add to much flour.  Be sure to not overwork the dough with your hands because it will warm up the butter too much.


     Roll the dough out to about ¾” thick.  Cut dough into 8 biscuits using a biscuit cutter or Mason jar lid. 


 Place onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.

Makes 8 biscuits and each biscuit has roughly 30 carbs.

These biscuits go great with so many items.  Serve with spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, with an Italian salad, or serve with breakfast alongside scrambled eggs or a quiche
