Cheesy Garlic Biscuits


With fall fast approaching, the food gets a little heartier. These cheesy, garlicky, buttery biscuits are just the thing to compliment a big bowl of soup or stew, fried chicken and cream gravy, or even a weekend breakfast.


Cheesy Garlic Biscuits
Makes about a dozen 2 1/2 inch biscuits

2 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick, or homemade biscuit mix)
2/3 cup milk

3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (about 3 oz.)
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, divided use
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
4 tablespoons warm melted butter, divided use


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Swirl 1 tablespoon of butter into iron skillet (10" to 12") to coat the bottom and set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk baking mix, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and parsley until well-combined. Add milk and cheese and stir just until combined. Dough will be wet.

Place dough on a lightly floured surface, and sprinkle top lightly with flour. With floured hands, lightly pat dough out a little, then fold it in half, and gently pat into a rectangle. Fold again, dusting with a little flour as needed to keep dough from sticking. Handle dough as little as possible. Gently pat dough out to about 3/4 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or a cookie cutter, cut straight down (do not twist cutter). Place biscuits in skillet, sides touching, and bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

While biscuits bake, whisk remaining 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder into remaining 3 tablespoons melted butter. When biscuits are done, brush tops generously with garlic butter. Serve warm.


Notes: Pre-shredded cheese doesn't always melt very well because it is coated with an additive that keeps it from clumping. These biscuits will be a little more tender and the cheese will melt a little better if you shred your own. 



Try these biscuits with Roasted Garlic Potato Soup

  11. Oh my, these look so good! My grandma recently passed down one of her huge cast iron skillets to me so I love finding recipes that use an iron skillet. I like how you added in garlic powder. I bet it gives them a delicious garlic flavor :)

    1. Michelle, of course it's still hot here, too, and I'm like you, it doesn't stop me from cooking/baking. If we southerners waited for the weather to cooperate, we'd bake about 1 month total out of the year, lol! Thanks for coming by, Michelle! :)
