Sour Cream, Cheddar and Chive Biscuit


I made these up this morning from things I had on hand and they turned out great! Here’s the simple recipe:

Sour Cream, Cheddar, and Chive Biscuits:
2 C. Bisquick
1/2 – 3/4 C. shredded cheddar cheese
2 T. snipped fresh chives
1/3 C. sour cream
1/3 C. milk

Garlic Butter (optional):
In small saucepan melt 2 T. butter over low heat. Crush one small clove of garlic and add to the butter. Cook for a couple of minutes and then turn off heat. Brush biscuits with garlic butter as soon as they come out of oven.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In bowl, mix together dry biscuit mix, cheese and chives. Blend milk and sour cream together in measuring cup then pour into dry mixture. Mix with spoon until just combined (do not overmix!). Sprinkle counter with some extra Bisquick and dump mixture onto counter. Knead gently a few times until everything is fairly well incorporated. At this point more Bisquick can be added if dough is too moist to work with. Pat out to 1/2 thickness and cut into biscuits (whatever size or shape you want). Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake for about 8 – 10 minutes until golden. Brush with garlic butter (optional), place on rack to cool for a couple minutes then eat while warm.

I ate mine for breakfast filled with thinly sliced ham…it was wonderful!
