Herb cheese biscuits for the win!

The prototypical Thanksgiving meal always has its staples. You know, those items that you just have to have if you’re celebrating the American Thanksgiving. Obviously, there needs to be the requisite turkey, potatoes (like my twice-baked sweet potato recipe!), and some variety of cranberry dish. It just wouldn’t be Turkey Day without these!

The sides can take a lot of time and preparation, so when it comes to a bread – and for all those carb lovers out there, we all know that it’s a mandatory part of any meal – it can appear to be an afterthought in so many cases. Or sometimes it’s an even worse situation: something from one of those poppable cans (I won’t mention any brands). I totally understand having those items that can be a needed shortcut are helpful, but with this quick herb cheese biscuit recipe, you now have no excuse! Seriously… none!

I love the “cragginess” of this biscuit. And the added herbs provide a little something extra!

This year, with the express approval from my mom, I opted to switch up my family’s staple recipe with a few herbs and some cheese. This gives the biscuits a flavorful and moist texture that won’t put them on the sidelines. Instead, they’ll be the total star of the show! And you’ll be a Thanksgiving hero for making the best part!

Cheers to a happy Thanksgiving!

If you’re looking for additional Thanksgiving day recipes, I’ve got you covered. This year, I’m crushing on my twice-baked sweet potatoes as well as turkey-shaped popcorn balls. Because, you know, popcorn + me = love!

As always, once you make these biscuits, make sure to let me know how the recipe turned out for you. Take a pic and tag it on Instagram (and maybe include some of your family if you’re making these for Thanksgiving)!

  1. Love watching your videos. Wish I was your neighbor so we can han out and cook together. Ok I will watch you and learn lol. He wonderful Thanksgiving be blessed

  2. I happen to love the cranberry sauce from the can. I definitely have to have it for my requisite next day turkey sandwich. I’ve had the homemade version (many of them) and like the canned stuff the best. To each his own. I will definitely be making these biscuits at some point. I already have rolls done for tomorrow. Have a blessed day.
