Cheddar Cheese Biscuits
Recreated from a Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives Episode
Wednesday, March 26, 2014 • Posted March 27, 2014

During a recent “DDD” airing, the chef whipped up a batch of Cheddar Cheese biscuits. They looked great, and we decided to try to either find the recipe on the internet, or recreate it from what we remembered seeing. We had no luck on the internet, so what I’m presenting here is our best guess, plus what I learned from making several experimental batchs of these little fellers. They’re just about fool-proof, no matter how you go about building the batter. This recipe will make 15-20 small biscuits.


2 cups, all-purpose flour

A “generous” ½ teaspoon of salt

1 tablespoon sugar (optional)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup milk

5 tablespoons melted butter

1 “generous” cup of cheddar cheese; white or yellow


Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees; rack in center position

Prepare a cookie baking sheet by either greasing it or lining it with parchment paper

Stir all ingredients together in a large bowl

Use a scoop or spoon to measure out walnut sized portions and drop onto the prepared cooking sheet

Bake for 20-22 minutes, until just beginning to turn golden brown on the top and around the edges

Remove from the oven and start eating them as fast as you can, once they’re cool enough to handle

Options to Consider:

Brush melted butter on the still warm biscuits

Add a pinch of sea salt to each of the butter-covered biscuits

Fry up some breakfast sausage of your choice and add a ½ cup to the batter

Make the biscuits a bit larger, cut them open and add a sausage patty

Chop up some pepperoni and add about a half cup of it to the batter

Make up some honey butter: 4 tablespoons soft butter with 1 tablespoon (or more!) of honey. blended together with a fork and slathered onto biscuits
