Cheese Drop Biscuits with Garlic Butter

If you are in a hurry and are craving homemade bread this recipe is for you!  The Athlete loves these drop biscuits and and I have been known to put them together at the last minute because I saw a look of disappointment on his face.  They only take about 10 minutes to put together so it is hard to say no.  So just get in the kitchen and whip these little drops of cheesey goodness into shape and wait for the compliments to come your way!  Recipe and how to photographs can be found at the end of the post.

Deviating from the usual muffin lab that I do for the  first lab of the semester was quite interesting.  Why change something that works you might ask? Well, having all of the ingredients for a recipe helps.  My pantry had several boxes of Bisquick and the drop biscuits put it to good use.

I gave the demonstration yesterday.  With new cooks their knowledge is very limited so they ask me lots of questions or they just watch and try to soak it all in.  It is as if they are learning a new language. For some of them it is very difficult and for others it comes very easy.I’ve never done these drop biscuits as a lab before, therefore have nothing to compare it to.  All the biscuits were edible!  That is always good.  Everyone enjoyed themselves.

I have to say this about tasting what each group prepared.  Some groups will not start eating until I come to their table and taste their food.  They all sit there speechless waiting for me to let them know how it taste.  Even the slight hesitation as I am talking will scare them.  My approval is a very powerful tool.  Sometimes it is a little scary.  I don’t want to say the wrong thing and discourage a student.    I know you are all are wondering what I might say if the food is bad.  And yes, I have had the pleasure of tasting bad food !!  I always try to remember what a good friend of mine told me. She saw a friend’s new baby for the first time and it was NOT a pretty baby. She said, ” Oh my goodness, what a pretty blanket.”   Focus on the positive!

As a sideline here,  one of the department heads observed me yesterday and  an administrator today.   It is the first time anyone has ever observed the first lab of the semester. All kinds of things can go wrong during the first lab.  You can have students that hate each other working together.  Then you might have a group that every member is scared to do anything so nothing gets done. This list goes on, but all went well!  Thank goodness.

Cheesy Drop Biscuits with Garlic Butter

From Betty Crocker

  • 2 cups of original Bisquick
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons margarine or butter melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  In a medium bowl mix Biquick and shredded cheese together.  Add milk.  Stir with fork until soft dough forms.  On a cookie sheet, drop dough by 10 to 12 spoonfuls about 2 inches apart.  I like to used parchment paper to line the baking sheet .  If you do not use the paper I would lightly grease the baking sheet because the cheese will cause the biscuits to stick.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  In small bowl, stir butter and garlic powder until well mixed: brush on warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet.  Serve warm.

Here are photos to show the steps:

  1. Well, you can’t beat perfection. And these are. So simple too. I haven’t made them in ages! Thanks for the lesson, teach!

  2. My husband would go nuts for these! I have loads of fresh garlic, so I will have to experiment with making my own version of garlic butter…

  3. Update: I made these tonight! They were definitely yummy. The fresh garlic was divine in the butter, especially when the biscuits were warm. 🙂

  25. Dear Mrs. Lupo,
    I’m so encouraged by your comment that the students watch and try to soak it all in. I was beginning to think students didn’t want to learn to cook any more. Your blog proves the opposite. You’re correct, it is a new language, but from the pictures it looks as if they’re learning fast. I love your attitude of only focusing on the positive. I still remember with great fondness my teachers that were positive and encouraging to me. I enjoy your blog and reading the students’ comments.
