Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

I found this recipe on this blog when I was searching for some new ideas for Thanksgiving dinner. My mother in law from Peru was going to be with us during the holiday so I wanted to give her the best experience possible.

What first attracted me to this recipe was the title. It was simple yet intriguing. Then I read the ingredients and I had to do a double take to make sure I wasn't missing anything. There was 6 ingredients total and it didn't take hours to rise and bake and all that other nonsense that bread can require.

Here's my adaptation:

1 1/2 cups of Pioneer Baking Mix
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese (I used a Mexican blend since that's what I had already)
1/2 cup of Milk
2 tbsp of Butter
1 tbsp of Oregano
3/4 tsp of Garlic Powder

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2. Mix baking mix, milk, cheese and garlic powder until it forms a sticky dough.

3. Place lumps of dough onto a greased cookie sheet. I made 9-12 big biscuits with this recipe.

4. Bake for approximately 10 minutes until the top is starting to brown.

5. Melt the butter and then mix in oregano.

6. Brush butter over biscuits and allow to rest for about 5 minutes, if you're able to resist that long.

This recipe is E.A.S.Y. I think it took me all of 2 minutes to incorporate all the ingredients and get the biscuits in the oven. In addition to being super easy, these biscuits are supper yummy! My mother in law asked immediately how I made these, which is a good sign in my book. I made this recipe the 2 nights following Thanksgiving at the request of my husband and mother in law.

Husband rating: 5/5.
