WARNING: ADDICTIVE! Once you make Cheese and Herb Biscuits, you will find yourself making them at least once a week! Similar to Cheesy Garlic Biscuits, these are a great way to use up extra fresh herbs and to easily make your own dinner bread.
The fresh herb mix can be any combination you have lurking in your vegetable drawer. I also made these into sliders and ate them breakfast. Like I said, addictive.
If you are anything like me, you end up throwing away an embarrassing amount of food. You buy an ingredient, only use 75% and the rest just sits there.
I’ve been on a mission to not waste so much food, so I develop recipes that are versatile and can use up those odds and ends. Cheese and Herb Biscuits are one example.
You can use any combination or herbs you desire. Parsley, cilantro, dill, rosemary, oregano, tarragon; you decide! Herb stems are also under-utilized.
In many recipes, you can use both the leaves and smaller stems in recipes. Even the larger stems can be chopped into salads, dressing and sauces or used to infuse olive oil.
You can also use any type of cheese(s) you have lurking your deli drawer. In fact, they taste better with a variety unless you are using a very pungent and stand-alone type cheese.
By the way, the term drop biscuit simply means a biscuit made by dropping your biscuit dough from a spoon onto your baking sheet. Actually, Americans have been making drop biscuits since the 1850’s! Just a neat little fact of the day there for you!
