Okay, I’m offering up this recipe just in time for the weekend. Because you know you’ll want a quick breakfast in the morning. Or a snack for tomorrow afternoon. Or a marvelous side for dinner. And this one could meet the criteria for any of those.
These are reminiscent of Red Lobster’s famous biscuits. I didn’t say I actually had the recipe, it’s just in that family.
Also known as Drop Biscuits in their plainest (but still great) form. I took a very simple recipe (that’s quick and great with jelly or gravy for breakfast) and added two of my favorite ingredients.
For my sized family of 6 I double this and it’s just right!
- 1 cup white flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoons butter – softened
- 1/4 cup milk – or more if needed
(stop here and continue with baking directions if you want the simple drop biscuits – continue if you’re hankerin’ for a little somethin’ more!)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt (or 1/2 -1 teaspoon minced garlic – they’re both great)
- 3/4 cup shredded cheese (I like sharp cheddar or mozzarella best, but this is up to you)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Measure flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add butter to bowl and rub butter into flour with a fork (or your fingers if you’re brave). Add garlic and cheese at this point, if you so desire. Add milk to make a thick batter, stirring only until dough sticks together. Drop by teaspoonfuls on a very lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 7-8 minutes in preheated oven. When they’re golden pull ‘em out and serve ‘em warm!
That’s it. Really. No kneading. No rising. Just dump, stir, scoop, and bake. 20 minutes total and you’re serving little mouths yummy treats!
