Almost Cheddar Bay Biscuits





These cheese biscuits are SO easy to make, and they taste just like the real thing! My family begs for these at least a couple times a week. It only takes 15 minutes! 

Almost Cheddar Bay Biscuits

  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp butter or margarine 
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium mixing bowl until a sticky dough forms.
  3. Drop by large spoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet.  The dough will keep its shape as it cooks, so if you prefer, you can smooth and lightly shape the biscuits.  I like to leave mine like they fall , because it makes lots of spots that will collect the butter after cooking.
  4. Bake until edges start to brown slightly, about 10 minutes.
  5. While the biscuits bake, melt the butter with oregano.
  6. Immediately after taking the biscuits out of the oven, brush the butter mixture on the tops.

If you don't have Bisquick on hand,  you can make your own using the recipe below.

Homemade Bisquick

*Makes about 6 cups

  • 5 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening

Directions:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Cut the shortening in with a fork (or you can use a pastry cutter if you have one).  When the mixture becomes crumbly sort of like corn meal, it is ready.
  3. You're done! Really!  Store it in an airtight container and use anytime a recipe calls for Bisquick.
