Cheddar and Green Onion Biscuits

Perfect little bites!



I gave Michael instructions on how to throw together a slow-cooker chili while I was at work, and made these as soon as I came home!



I got the recipe from Serious Eats, but it’s a simple recipe I’ve made before! They just inspired me 🙂




  • 9 ounces (about 1 3/4 cups) all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 ounces cheddar cheese, grated (about 1/4 cup)
  • Green part of 1 green onion, sliced thin
  • 1 cup milk


Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. In a medium bowl. combine the flour, baking powder, and salt, Whisk to combine.



Cut the butter into several pieces and add it to the flour, With your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until you have very small pieces throughout. Add the cheese and scallion, and stir to distribute.




Add the milk and stir to combine.



Flour your work surface lightly. Remove the dough from the bowl, put it on your floured surface, and pat it into a rough square about 9 inches across.



Fold the dough in thirds, like a letter, pat it down again until it's about an inch thick.




Turn it 90°, and fold in thirds again.




Dust your work surface with flour again, if needed, and roll the dough to a thickness of 1/2 to 3/4 inches. Cut out your biscuits with a cutter or glass, or scimitar. Whatever.




Brush the tops of the biscuits with milk or melted butter, if desired, and bake at 400°F until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
