Recipe of the Day: Savory Biscuits

Oldest Daughter and I were looking at magazines this past weekend and we came upon a biscuit recipe with “stuff” in it.  Well, when I decided to fix them last night to go with our Chipotle Fried Chicken, I couldnt locate the recipe so I just reworked my biscuit recipe to great success.  Here you go:


Preheat oven to 475. Chop a half a cup or so of shallots.  Add these and 1/2 cup finely grated Asiago or other flavorful cheese to 2 cups White Lily Self Rising Flour, 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal, 1 tsp salt mixed with 1/2 cup lard (or shortening if you insist) to resemble coarse cornmeal (usual biscuit dough prep).


To this add 1 cup more or less cultured buttermilk. And mix to make a soft dough – as usual DO NOT over handle this! Fold it over a couple of times onto itself to form layers.


Cut with 2 inch sharp biscuit cutter and remember DO NOT twist your cutter…this will seal the sides and you wont get the rise you want.


Bake for 15-18 minutes at 475.  Brush with melted butter and serve.


I served these with Chipotle Fried Chicken and Fresh Asparagus.

Those look seriously good! I make a cheese and chive biscuit, which is really good. I wish we could get your kind of flour here. We get French Flour though and that’s pretty good.


Those look marvelous!! Must send Hubby to store for White Lilly flour NOW!!
