Cheddar Drop Biscuits


On Sunday’s I like to go all out an make a really delicious dinner. I make lots of side and dessert all from scratch. We have a nice glass of wine and linger at the table a little longer then normal. This is one of our favourite weekend traditions.


These biscuits are a highly requested Sunday night side. They go well with just about everything. I love to serve them at a bbq, but I think they would also be great instead of rolls at the holidays (Too soon to think about?Never!!). And if there are leftovers they go great with eggs and bacon for breakfast!

These biscuits are also super easy to make. They only use one bowl and since they are drop biscuits there’s not rolling and cutting. Just scoop them out, and drop them on the tray!
