Cheese Biscuits

Cheese Biscuits are one of my favorite morning treats.  By themselves or as a side to eggs and bacon they have a wonderful flavor.  Some nights after church I have come home to make a batch with hot chocolate and coffee.What you’ll need:

  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Self Rising Flour – I only use White Lily – it is simply the best.  Like my cornbread recipe use (1 cup per 2 people)
  • Buttermilk (usually about 1/2 the flour measurement)
  • Oil (about a Tbsp)
  • 1 large Egg
  • Sharp cheddar grated (1/2 cup grated per cup flour)
  • For brushing on afterward if you want the “Red Lobster” effect:   melted butter and garlic salt
  • Greased Cookie sheet (spray with PAM)

What you’ll do:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Put flour in bowl – I pour in to a certain spot each time (2 cups should do for 4 people)
  3. Mix in cheese (this is called dredging the cheese in flour – that keeps in from clumping all together and coats all the different little grated pieces)
  4. Make a hole in the middle of the flour/cheese mixture
  5. Fill hole with buttermilk
  6. Pour oil in until it rises (about 1 Tbsp ought to do it)
  7. Break in egg
  8. Using a fork, pull flour/cheese ingredients into the liquid and mix well – should have plenty of  ‘stand alone body’
  9. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet – about 1″ apart – about 12 on a sheet – I make them small lemon size
  10. Bake for 10-12 minutes (light golden brown – some cheeses spots will be darker)

Serve with butter, jams and jelly, syrup or honey.  Left overs are great sliced open and toasted with butter. ENJOY!
