Description

Garlic cheddar biscuits qualify as breakfast or a dinner side dish. These are packed with flavour and can be prepped for the oven in less than 15 minutes!


Ingredients

Bicsuits:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, diced and very cold
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup milk, very cold

Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, garlic powder, salt, sugar and baking powder. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or fork until butter is the size of small peas. Stir in cheddar cheese.
  3. Slowly pour in the milk and mix just until combined. Once the batter forms into a soft dough, use your hands to fold in the dry pieces that haven’t been incorporated. Be careful not to overmix. Note that the dough will be slightly sticky. 
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat it into a 3/4-inch thick disk. Flour a biscuit cutter and cut out rounds of dough. Place biscuits onto prepared baking sheets.
  5. In a small bowl combine melted butter, garlic powder and dried oregano. Brush the tops of the biscuits with half the butter mixture.
  6. Bake biscuits for 13 to 16 minutes, or until tops are just golden brown.
  7. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the remaining butter mixture. Let cool and serve.

Notes

You can substitute the milk with half-and-half or buttermilk.
