When fall rolls around I turn from craving salads to craving soups and breads. Okay, who am I kidding? I crave bread all year long, but there is just something so comforting about fall. The cooler weather, changing colors, and cozy feeling from comfort foods.
I made a big batch of cheddar garlic drop biscuits for the family the other day to go with dinner. Have you tried these before?
They are to die for and literally melt in your mouth. One of my kids’ favorites sides to have with dinner. They are quick and easy to make too! Cheddar garlic drop biscuits are so delicious with a big bowl of soup or pasta. The perfect weeknight recipe when you don’t have time to make dinner rolls.
What Are Drop Biscuits?
Drop biscuits are scooped onto a baking sheet instead of rolled out and cut with a biscuit cutter. The dough is sticky. These biscuits are delicious with gravy and sausage, too! I’ve never had great success with rolled biscuits and prefer the texture of drop. When I make biscuits and gravy I omit the garlic butter and cheese.
How To Make GarliC Cheddar Drop Biscuits
The dough comes together in just minutes and is completely made from scratch. No Bisquick here. Mix flour, baking powder and salt together then cut in COLD butter.
Once the mixture resembles coarse crumbs stir in milk and cheddar cheese.
The biscuit dough is a sticky dough. Instead of rolling out the biscuits, you drop them onto a lightly greased baking sheet.
After baking, brush with garlic butter. The result yields 18 garlic, buttery, biscuits that are better than the ones at Red Lobster.
Like most baked goods, they are best the first day. These garlic cheddar biscuits can be reheated for a few seconds in the microwave the second day and are just as delicious!
