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:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- 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.
- Add 1 cup buttermilk and stir, just until combined.
- Drop by heaping tablespoonful onto greased pan or cookie sheet. Bake for 7 minutes.
- Combine melted butter with garlic salt and brush onto tops of biscuits.
- Return biscuits to oven for an additional 3-5 minutes.
Yields approximately 15 biscuits
Cost of recipe: $1.88 ($.13/serving).
