Herb + Cheese Biscuits

Thanksgiving meal has its staples. Obviously there will be the requisite turkey, potatoes and some variety of cranberry dish. The sides can take a lot of time and preparation so when it comes to a bread, it can many times appear to be an afterthought. Or sometimes even worse: something from those cans (I won’t mention any brands). I understand having those items that can be a shortcut are helpful, but with this quick biscuit recipe you now have no excuse! This year, I switched up my family’s staple recipe with a few herbs and some cheese to give a flavorful and moist biscuit that won’t be a second thought. Instead, it’ll be the star of the show!

Herb + Cheese Biscuits
  1. 2 cups flour
  2. 3 teaspoons baking powder
  3. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 2 teaspoons minced sage
  6. 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
  7. 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  8. 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  9. 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into small pieces
  10. 2/3 cup buttermilk
  11. 1 egg
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the minced herbs and onion powder and Parmesan cheese. Whisk together.
  3. Add the butter pieces and cut the butter into the dough with a pastry cutter until only small pieces remain.
  4. In a separate container, combine the egg and buttermilk. Whisk to break up the egg.
  5. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and combine with a fork until it forms a shaggy dough.
  6. On a floured surface, knead the biscuit dough until it holds together. Pat into a circle about 1/2 inch thick.
  7. Cut with a 2- or 3-inch biscuit cutter and place biscuits on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Continue cutting biscuits. Once the biscuits have been cut, press together the remaining dough and press to 1/2 inch thick to cut the remaining biscuits.
  8. Brush the tops of the biscuits with more buttermilk.
  9. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes until puffed and golden with a crisp top.
  10. Remove the biscuits from the oven and brush the tops with melted salted butter. Serve immediately.
