The Life of Jennifer Dawn: Easy Cheddar and Garlic Biscuits

Easy Cheddar and Garlic Biscuits

We love our biscuits here in the South, but these buttery, flaky cheddar biscuits are on a whole new level. Bursting with the flavors of cheddar and garlic, they're a savory biscuit that's truly irresistible. It only takes minutes to mix up these fresh, made-from-scratch biscuits. And the mix and drop technique not only makes them quick and easy but also gives them that simple homemade look.
Birthdays have always been a BIG deal in my family. So...when my oldest daughter recently asked for cheddar biscuits and popcorn shrimp for her birthday dinner, that's exactly what she got. Can you tell what her favorite restaurant is? We don't have to eat at Red Lobster to enjoy their signature cheddar bay biscuits, though. This simple recipe is just as good--if not better than the original. Yes, these cheddar and garlic biscuits are really that good! They certainly met with the birthday girl's approval.
Dorot Gardens!
I know I already mentioned how quick and easy this recipe is. Do you want to know what made it even easier? Dorot Gardens! If you've ever wanted to snap your fingers and instantly have all the washing and chopping of your fresh herbs done, this is your answer!

I absolutely LOVE cooking with fresh herbs during the warmer months when we have a garden bursting with fresh herbs and vegetables. With risks of frost still, we haven't planted our herb garden for this year yet.

Dorot Gardens to the rescue, though. They have done all the work for me--from growing to prepping. It's like having my own personal sous chef. All I had to do was drop in some of the pre-portioned herbs and garlic into my cheddar biscuits, and I was good to go!
If you're craving warm, delicious cheddar biscuits for your next meal, this recipe is your answer! They are quick and easy to make, but the fresh flavors will have everyone thinking you spent hours preparing them! Ready to mix up a batch? You'll only need 8 ingredients! Yes, that's it! Here's my super simple recipe for Cheddar and Garlic Biscuits!

Cheddar & Garlic Biscuit Recipe

Ingredients for the Dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced (Dorot Gardens has the prep work done for you.)
  • 2 tsp. chopped parsley or basil (Dorot Gardens to the rescue again!)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Ingredients for the Topping:

  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside. Preheat the over to 450 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine your dry ingredients: flour, salt, and baking powder.
  3. In a second large bowl, mix together your wet ingredients: milk, melted butter, garlic, and herbs.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed. This mixture gets thick so an electric mixer is advised especially if you double the recipe.
  5. Fold in the cheddar cheese.
  6. Scoop the batter onto the parchment paper in 1/4 cup portions leaving space between each portion of dough. You can use a measuring cup and gently shape each mound of biscuit dough or give them a rustic look by simply dropping the dough onto the baking sheet. This recipe should make about 10 biscuits.
  7. Place the baking sheet into the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the tops begin to turn golden.
  8. Mix melted butter and garlic together and brush over the finished rolls.
  9. These are best served warm. Enjoy!
