Garlic Cheese Biscuits Recipe

"This is a savory variation on my favorite buttermilk biscuit recipe," notes Gayle Becker of Mt. Clemens, Michigan. Shredded cheddar cheese adds nice color, and a tasty butter mixture brushed on top of these drop biscuits provides a burst of garlic flavor.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder, divided
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, baking powder, baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon bouillon; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cheese. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

"Great biscuits! I did not have any chicken bouillon so used approx. 1Tblsp of Italian seasoning instead. Hubby said these were a make again!"

"We love having a special biscuit or bread to go with soup! These are perfect, and easy! I normally have all the ingredients on hand and can whip them up in a few minutes! I do like to use a little garlic salt in the melted butter for the top."

"These were good and similar to Red Lobster's. Normally, I would've just used Bisquick, milk, and cheese and made the biscuits, but I was out of Bisquick. So, I gave these a try. A little more work, but I personally liked these better than the Bisquick kind."

"These were OK but I like the ones made with biscuit better and they are easier to do as well."

"These were the best I have made, I only used 1tsp of garlic, and just butter at the end and they were great..."

"These were delicious! Very easy to make. Next time I will cut out 1/2 t of the garlic powder. It was a bit much. I also added some parsley to melted butter when I brushed the biscuits. Very good!"
