Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

If you like biscuits, it’s worth making your own from scratch, and you don’t even need to roll and cut them. This recipe is based on the Quick Drop Biscuits recipe from The Joy of Cooking, which I use often. I might even like drop biscuits better than rolled. The shagginess of the batter means you get golden, crispy peaks all over the surface.

These cheesy drop biscuits are not only great with breakfast. They would make a savory accompaniment to a hearty fall soup or stew. They keep well for a few days in an airtight container, but are definitely best when eaten as soon as safely possible right out of the oven.
