Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

"I get a lot of recipes from friends, and this one is no exception," writes Frances Poste from her home in Wall, South Dakota. Biscuit mix is combined with a little minced onion, garlic powder and cheese to create these golden drop biscuits that bake in a flash.

    I had to make these gluten free so they came out a little denser and a little dryer, but the taste was fantastic!

    This is a staple recipe for us now, everyone loves them! I shake a few real bacon bits in for a special flavor!

    So easy, quick and family loved them. Looking forward to having big bowl of chili and making these biscuits again.

    These didn't turn out well for me. Not sure if I will try again. They seemed rather dry.

    Delicious and easy. So fast! These were fluffy and the oozing cheese looked enticing. Great with Creamy Vegetable Chowder.

    Absolutely delicious! These are almost as good as the Cheddar Garlic Biscuits at Red Lobster.

    This is a quick and easy biscuit recipe. I used to buy the cheese biscuit mix from the store to keep on hand but these are just about as quick and just as good. I'm glad I found this recipe and my family loves them with a good dinner. The only additional I made was a bit more cheese and a tad more garlic. Other than that it's a GREAT make!
