Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

 

 

In the interest of being more useful to my readers, I am going to try something new with my recipes.  From now on, I’m going to try to include the cost and nutritional data for each recipe.

*********************************

These cheddar garlic biscuits are amazing!  I basically just played around with my regular buttermilk biscuit recipe to make these, but it was a successful experiment (trust me, there have been less than successful experiments as well!)

What you need:
2 cups all-purpose flour ($.20)
2 ½ tsp. baking powder ($.03)
¼ tsp. baking soda ($.00)
1 tsp. salt ($.00)
1/3 cup cold butter or margarine ($.16)
1 cup cheddar cheese ($.99)
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese ($.27)
3/4 cup buttermilk* ($.15)
1/3 tsp garlic salt ($.01)
2 tbsp melted butter or margarine ($.07)

(*If you do not have buttermilk, you can substitute soured milk:  Combine 3/4 cup milk (2% or whole works best) and 3/4 Tbsp vinegar, and let sit for about 5 minutes)

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Mix until combined.  Using a pastry blender (or 2 forks), mix in the cold butter until mixed together and cumbly.  Stir in cheeses.
  3. Add 1 cup buttermilk and stir, just until combined.
  4. Drop by heaping tablespoonful onto greased pan or cookie sheet.  Bake for 7 minutes. 
  5. Combine melted butter with garlic salt and brush onto tops of biscuits.
  6. Return biscuits to oven for an additional 3-5 minutes.

Yields approximately 15 biscuits

Cost of recipe: $1.88 ($.13/serving). 
Nutrition Info (for 1 biscuit, when the recipe yields 15): 131 Calories; 7 g Fat; 13 g Carbs; 5 g Protein

*Cost and nutrition data calculated using margarine; Nutrition data taken from inputting recipe into My Fitness Pal.  The cost is based on the lowest retail cost available in my area, including store brands.  Your cost may vary slightly.

    Those look so good. We went out to Red Lobster on Sunday for a late mother’s day visit. The biscuits were burned. It has never happened before to us that we served burned biscuits. These were hard as rocks too. We were so disappointed. We asked for a different basket of biscuits but they never came.

    I like that you have included the cost and nutritional information! Thanks for sharing again with Delicious Dish Tuesday (would you mind providing a back link when you get a chance?)

      Amanda, I have a “signature” of sorts for all my recipe posts that includes the link, but apparently forgot to add it on this once. So sorry, and I will add your link now. I also have delicious dish linked on my sidebar and in my link-up parties page :)

    These look so delicious, and easy! Wow! Definitely trying these. And I love how you post the prices for each ingredient. Thanks so much for sharing!

      Yes, April, I have eaten them with nearly anything. I especially love them with a bowl of homemade potato soup. Not necessarily a healthy meal, since it’s all carbs, but yummy nonetheless :)

    These look so good! I have the Red Lobster biscuit recipe, but it calls for using Bisquick. I love having a recipe that I can make from scratch. Thanks for sharing!

      Yes, that is what I hated about the recipes I’d seen as well. I always have baking supplies in my cabinet, but never have bisquick. Thanks for stopping by :)
