This is so easy - it's a crime and the taste - even more illegally awesome! LOL some say they taste like "Red Lobsters" biscuits...all I know is you can change up the cheeses and herbs/spices and really have fun with these. Enjoy! ~ Diane
CHEDDAR BAY BISCUITS FROM SCRATCH
2 Cups Buttermilk Biscuit Mix
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 1/2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2/3 Cups of Milk
2 Tbs Butter, Melted
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp garlic salt
For "Biscuits": Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and spray a cooking sheet with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper.
Place into a large bowl: buttermilk biscuit mix (like Bisquick), garlic powder, and shredded cheddar cheese.
mix everything together
Add in about 2/3 cups of milk. Stir until combined.
*it gets pretty thick, and you can add a little more milk if you need to. But don’t add too much, otherwise it will get even stickier. I use a lightly oiled 1/4 cup measuring spoon to drop the dough onto your cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake in oven approx. 10 minutes.
For "Topping": melt 2 Tablespoons of butter, stirring in oregano, parsley and garlic salt. .
When biscuits have cooked 10 minutes - brush some of the butter mixture over each biscuit. Then, pop them back into the oven for another 5-6 minutes.Or until they’re lightly browned. If you like, you can brush with the garlic-herb butter again and let it soak in before you serve them. Since I made these ahead of time - I didn't brush on melted topping until 10 mins before serving...I cooked my biscuits a few hours ahead and then brushed topping on and set in warm oven to 'reheat' - they came out great.
Recipe Note: Want a 'kick" to them - try pepper jack and cheddar cheese mix!
