Garlic Cheddar Biscuits – No Milk needed!

1 Mar

Seriously, why is every Momma always out of Bread, Eggs and Milk? It’s always one or the other or ALL!

Thank goodness to meal planning, I only go grocery shopping once every two weeks (I’ll share my meal planning tips with you guys soon, we save so much money doing it). Since this weekend is one of my shopping weekends, we’re getting low on some things. Today I planned to have breakfast for dinner (One of our favorites! Honestly, who doesn’t LOVE Bfast for dins?)

Some Jimmy Dean maple and brown sugar sausage – my absolute favorite,  Eggs – I eat mine fried with a runny yolk but since my fiancée thinks it’s absolutely disgusting…I make a large batch of scrambled eggs,  some  buttered toast and a nice cold glass of milk to drink it down. <—sounds perfect right?

Ok now let’s minus the bread and milk cause I’m OUT!

I don’t know if it’s just me but I can’t eat breakfast without some sort of bread. There’s gotta be toast, biscuits or an english muffin present or I won’t be satisfied.

So I went on a search for a good recipe for NO MILK biscuits and came across this sour cream biscuit recipe on allrecipes.com (<–love that site!). I’m not even the best baker and it looks easy to me!

The original recipe calls for:

  • 2 cups of All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup of sour cream (I used fat-free)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of water (I doubled it to 3 tablespoons)

I’m sure that recipe would be perfect just how it is with some jam etc, if that’s the way you’re going but I wanted to add some savory za-za-zing to it.

I added:

  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (I used mild)

Lets’ get baking!

DoughJust use your hands to mix the ingredients and form into a ball.

Used glass to cut out circles

Roll the dough out and cut your circles, as you can see I used a glass

(I don’t even have a circle cookie cutter, that’s how much I don’t bake)

Biscuts shaped

Pre-heat your oven to 450 and bake between 13-15 minutes, depending on your oven.

 (This is not shown in the picture but you will need to line your pan with foil or parchment paper)

This recipe yields 10 biscuits

Biscuits 2

and I don’t wanna get all Paula Deen on you but I definitely ate them with butter. Butter makes everything better (except your health)

They are fluffy, chewy, cheesy, and so good!

Enjoy!! (Unless you’re on a diet) 🙂

Tata!

    I love Allrecipes.com!! Also thought you would like to know that this is how nanny always made biscuits. She never had cookie cutters. A good sized glass makes the perfect size biscuit! I can’t wait to try this! NOM NOM!!
