Meatless Monday - Homemade "Cheddar Roo" Biscuits


Ok, no one panic.  Biscuits are not that hard.  A few tips before we get started.  Make sure that your flour is self-rising OR add about a tablespoon of baking powder to help keep your biscuits from being hockey pucks.  On other thing to keep in mind is that if you are going to use salted butter do not salt the flour, if you’re using unsalted butter, add about a ½ teaspoon to the dry ingredients.

I’m going to show you a basic white cheese biscuits; you can leave out the cheese and make some gravy.  It’s a very easy recipe.

Chop the 8 teaspoons of butter into little pieces about the size of a pea; add this to the bowl of flour
Use your fingers to incorporate the butter into the flour, a little at a time add the milk to the flour mixture.

Using your hands mix the two together until it forms a soft dough, if it gets crumbly, just add more milk a little at a time until it's smooth.

After about 10 minutes check the bottoms to see if they are brown, if so remove the pan from the oven and carefully split them open.

Keep a watch on the biscuits and remove when the cheese is melted

I really love making things from scratch.  Sure I could use canned biscuits but just look at the ingredients:






My biscuits have:
Flour
Milk
Butter – Cream and salt
Check your labels, if it has things like MSG, HFCS or “Modified” items you’ll want to avoid it.


Easy breezy biscuits, let me know how you make out!

Namaste & Blessed Be
