Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

Cheddar Bay Biscuits
Regular readers might have read my previous posts and its no secret that I like Italian food.  Most Italian restaurants serve fresh baked bread as an appetizer.  Our favorite are these garlic and parsley flavored Cheddar Cheese Biscuits which are popularly known as Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  I find these easy as compared to the yeast breads.

All Purpose Flour/Maida - 1 cup
Cheddar Cheese (Sharp) - 3/4 cup
Unsalted Butter - 5 tbsp
Milk - about 1/2 cup
Olive Oil - 1 tbsp
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Garlic Powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper Powder - 1/2 tsp
Dry Parsley - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 1/4 tsp

How to bake Cheddar Bay Biscuits:
  • Preheat the oven at 400 degrees F.  Line a baking tray with aluminium foil and lightly grease it with butter.
  • In a small mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients - all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, fresh ground black pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder, salt and sugar.  Mix well.
  • In a big microwave safe bowl, add 4 tbsp butter and microwave for 20 seconds, just enough to soften it.  Add oil and grated cheddar cheese.  To this, add the dry ingredients.  Add milk little at a time, to form a soft dough.

  • In a small pan, melt 1 tbsp butter.  Add 1/2 tsp garlic and dry parsley.  Use this melted butter for brushing the baked biscuits.  You can add more butter as well.
  • Divide the dough into 12 balls and place them a few inches apart on the greased tray.  Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Brush the half baked biscuits with the melted butter and bake for another 5 minutes or so. 
Enjoy soft, flaky Cheddar Cheese Biscuits as an appetizer.  We enjoyed these with Minestrone Soup.
