Drop biscuits with cheddar cheese and fresh chives.
Cheddar Chive Biscuits are easy to make and delicious to eat.
As much as I love baking, I am a lazy biscuit baker. I’ve already shared with you baking biscuits in a pan. I try to avoid rolling out and cutting biscuits. I’m not sure why.
I don’t have any problem making pie crust and rolling it out. I make sugar cookies and roll them out and then use a cookie cutter. But with biscuits, I always seem to find a shortcut.
I love how easy these biscuits are to make, but I also love the craggy top and rustic look to these biscuits. There’s just a bit of cheddar cheese and chives. If you wanted a heavier chive taste, you could double or even triple the amount of fresh chives.
To make these biscuits even easier, I’ve made them in the food processor. You can also just use a bowl. A food processor speeds up the whole biscuit making process.
These biscuits would be perfect with a nice bowl of soup. Maybe White Chicken Chili, Enchilada Soup or this Stuffed Pepper Soup. If you are looking for additional biscuit recipes, check out these Ham and Cheese Biscuits.
