Cheese Biscuit Recipe (REALLY GOOD!)

Look out Red Lobster! These are so good!

These are such a great addition to a boring meal (that would be soup here)! They also work GREAT as a choice to take to a pot luck or brunch.

FIRST THING THOUGH - if you don't have Buttermilk handy - add 1 TBS of either lemon juice or vinegar to your regular milk and let it wait aside while you assemble all the other ingredients.

Here are the ingredients:
· 1 Cup Buttermilk or Soured Milk (as directed above)
· 1/4 Olive Oil
· 2 Cups FRESHLY MILLED FLOUR (in the Hopper at the same time gives you just enough)
· 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
· 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
· 1 tsp Garlic Salt
· 2 TBS Organic Evaporated Cane Sugar
· 1-2 Cups shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

In a large bowl, mix all the DRY ingredients together. Add the Shredded Cheese and toss just to cover each strands. Make a 'well' in the milddle of the dry ingredients. Combine the oil and buttermilk (soured milk) and pour the liquid slowly into the well while mixing until just barely combined. Do not over mix - batter should still be a bit lumpy.

Drop by spoonful or ice cream scoop on cookie sheet.

IF you would like to make them into 'cut' bisuits you can turn the batter out onto a heavily floured surface, pat lightly until about 1 inch thick and cut with biscuit cutter. Don't twist the cutter! Cut biscuits you would lay side by side (touching) in a baking pan.

Place a dollop of butter on top of each or brush with melted buttter. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes. Makes about 1 Dozen depending upon how big you cut/drop them!

This is only one of my great recipes. My kids love them! I hope yours do too. Thanks for reading, and Happy Eating! :)
