Onion & Cheddar Biscuits Recipe

"These biscuits are seriously addictive! I make a batch and freeze them - my husband microwaves one for breakfast every morning." Elaine Sweet, Dallas, TX
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake 15 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter, divided

"These are quite tasty, and they leave the whole house smelling great. I couldn't find white balsalmic vinegar, so I used golden balsalmic vinegar. It was still light in color, so it worked just fine. My only complaint is that for a recipe that makes just 6 biscuits, it takes a very long time to prepare! This page says 25 mins prep time, but cooking the onions until the vinegar evaporates, and then subsequently letting them cool, took me that long alone. Be sure to plan your timing carefully before starting this recipe."
