Cheese and Herb Biscuits

Easy and elegant breads can make the party hum. Shredded cheese and fresh herbs enliven this simple biscuit.

This week for soup night I had enough time and energy to prepare some “good bread.” That’s a colloquialism for a baked good that is good enough to make up for even the lowliest soup.

Soup night is not always a favorite.

However, this particular night was a hit! Kids hummed while they ate their soup and some even had seconds. And the biscuits? Gone like a flash. Apparently, I need to start preparing bigger batches of biscuits!

I made these biscuits a little bit “more” by adding in chopped fresh herbs and Dubliner cheese. I used dill and parsley, but you could really use whatever fresh herbs you have. Dubliner is our once-a-year-at-St-Patrick’s day splurge; I typically buy a huge block of it at Costco. It’s fun to work it into other dishes so that we don’t waste this hearty cheese. If you don’t have Dubliner, you could  use your favorite cheddar or swiss-style cheese instead.

You can cut the biscuits into 8 large or 16 small. These small ones are perfect for child-sized appetites.

These biscuits come together amazingly quickly. Who needs a can when you can make it better yourself?

  1. Made these tonight – hubby and son couldn’t get enough. I’ve been on the lookout for a biscuit recipe that worked for me, and this one *definitely* worked. Thanks! 🙂

  2. I made a similar biscuit….but mine had black pepper in them!

  3. these sound good! I tried some Dubliner a little bit ago, and it certainly tastes great. 🙂
