Biscuits bring a bit of versatility

Easter Sunday is right around the corner, folks. With Easter Sunday comes Easter Dinner, which means it’s time to start figuring out a menu.

No matter what you might decide on for a main course, one thing is for sure – you can never go wrong with bread!

Unless of course you need something that doesn’t contain gluten, in which case bread will definitely be the wrong choice.

For all other scenarios without dietary restrictions, you could use some biscuits.

Lots and lots of biscuits.

One thing that I love about drop biscuits, other than the ease of effort, is how incredibly versatile they are.

Ham, green beans, and potatoes would be complimented nicely with biscuits, or you could pair them with some fresh jelly and honey and add them to an Easter brunch.

Another great option is to add a cup of shredded cheddar and a teaspoon of garlic powder. Melt some butter and stir in a sprinkle of garlic powder for when your biscuits come out of the oven, and brush on top.

I won’t drop any restaurant names, but these are remarkably similar to the cheddar biscuits served at a seafood restaurant chain. You’re welcome.

If you need a quick and easy addition to your dinner, brunch, lunch, or breakfast, here you go.

As always, thanks for reading, and Happy Easter from hbk!

INGREDIENTS

2 C. All-purpose flour, leveled

¢ C. Butter, 1 stick

1 Tbsp. Baking powder

1 tsp. Salt

1 C. Milk

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or cooking spray.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.

3. Cut butter into small pieces, and incorporate into the flour mixture. This step can be sped up considerably by using a food processor.

4. Once the flour and butter combination resembles tiny crumbs, mix in milk and stir just until wet and mixed. Overmixing will create crumbly biscuits.

5. Using a tablespoon, scoop large scoops onto the baking sheet.

6. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Serve warm for best taste, and enjoy!

Makes 8 large biscuits or approximately 12 small biscuits.
