Green Onion Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

These biscuits are wonderful because they’re fluffy yet hearty, homemade yet quick to make, and very, very versatile – you can pretty much put anything in them that you want! Don’t like green onions? Try chives or rosemary. Want them for breakfast? Throw in some bacon and a little maple syrup. I love ’em because they’re a perfect companion to chili. But you can toss in whatever your heart desires – the possibilities are endless!

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Cut in the shortening with a couple of forks or a pastry blender.

In a small bowl, combine the milk, oil, and egg, whisking gently until well-combined.

Chop up the green onion and garlic.

In a large bowl, mix together the dry and wet ingredients.

Stir in the garlic, onion, and cheese.

Spoon the batter into a greased muffin tin.

Bake about 20 minutes.

Serve ’em while they’re hot!

  1. You are a woman after my own heart! Cheddar biscuit are one of my all time favorite guilty pleasures. I only make them occasionally because I can sit down and eat half a batch at once!

    Lovely photos and recipe!

  2. These look like nothing short of heaven. LOOK at that moist crumb. I want to make these to sop up Beef Bourguignon broth or beef stew.

  3. What a great recipe! You’re right, these would go perfect with chili! Sounds like a perfect football party snack, too. I can’t wait to try these 🙂

  6. These look really yummy. You’ve reminded me to bake my favorite imitation “Red Lobster” garlic cheddar biscuits. I think I’ll give them a spin by combining your recipe into mine. Can’t wait to see the results!

  7. ok, so I made these last night for dinner…they were really good! I omitted the green onions (didn’t have any) and just used the cheese and garlic and they were gooooood! Next time I will add a bit more salt ~ I’m a salty girl 😉 ~ but my family devoured them! I bet you’re right, you could do just about anything with these guys! Thanks for the keeper!
