Tomato Cheddar Biscuits


Some people may find biscuit-making onerous because it takes quite the effort to cut cold butter into the dough, but what if I told you  you can actually make biscuits without butter! Sounds off and improper but these biscuits are scrumptious and a bit different from regular biscuits. They’re kind of like Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits with a slight quiche flavor.

These biscuits were made extemporaneously so I am pleased with the outcome. My indolence kicked in this morning and rather head to the gym I made these instead. It was an arbitrary decision and I don’t know whether it was a good one or not…..


Tomato Cheddar Biscuits

yield: 6 biscuits

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 c. cheddar cheese
  • 3 tbsp. chopped bacon
  • 1/4 c. chopped sundried tomatoes
  • 1/4 c. Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 medium egg
  • 4 tbsp. frozen spinach (chopped and dried)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cheese, cornstarch, tomatoes, and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, oil, Greek yogurt, spinach, and bacon.
  4. Mix wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and incorporate until evenly combined.
  5. Flour a clean surface with 2 tbsp. flour and roll dough out onto surface. Knead for 1-2 minutes and shape into a rectangle that is about 0.5-1 in. thick.

Enjoy fresh out of the oven! The biscuits can last in the freezer up to a week or freeze really well.
