Easy Cheese Biscuit Recipe Final

Like most kids, if you were going to give me my first choice for dinner, I would choose some kind of delicious bread and cheese. This combination never fails, so when we found this recipe for easy cheese biscuits, it was like the best of both worlds colliding into a delicious combination.

Easy Cheese Biscuits Strategy

We would like to make a suggestion to all of those picky eaters out there. Make these cheese biscuits when your Mom makes a dinner you do not like. Take a bite of the biscuit, then the yucky dinner, then the biscuit, and repeat. It works. And you might even get dessert with this strategy because it helps you get enough healthy food down. We cannot make any promises, but so far this biscuit scheme has been a winner for us.

Cheese Biscuit with Butter on Plate

So Easy to Put Together

The first thing I did to make these cheese biscuits was grate fresh cheese. We have an issue with pre-shredded cheese, as they coat it with anti-caking agents to keep it from sticking together. That just does not sit well with us. One of our favorite things to do is sneak a whole handful of freshly grated cheese. Why does it taste so much better that way? We have never been tempted to do this with the pre-shredded cheese from the bag.

After shredding (and then eating) a cup of cheese, I shredded more cheese and combined it with the biscuit mix and garlic. The recipe suggested 2/3 cup of milk to make a very sticky dough. The problem for us is that it never came together with this amount. So we slowly added a few tablespoons at a time just until we had all of the dry ingredients moist.

Baking the Cheese Biscuits

I took a large spoon and plopped out six biscuits on a cooking sheet. These do not spread in the oven, and they keep their shape.

Next, we put them in the oven and pulled them out when they were just browning on the top.

And now comes my favorite part! We melted the butter and mixed in the garlic and oregano and brushed it on the top.

Hiding the Taste of a Yucky Dinner

These cheese biscuits are so addicting. They are fluffy, cheesy, and garlicky. They make the perfect distraction from a dinner that you do not want to eat. We wish you success with this strategy.

  • 2 Cups Buttermilk Biscuit Mix
  • 1 Cup Freshly Grated Cheese
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2/3 Cup Milk to Start, Adding 1 Tablespoon at a time if needed.
  • 2 Tablespoon Melted Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with silicone mat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together biscuit mix, cheese and garlic powder. Add in milk, and stir until well mixed. If your dough is too dry, slowly add milk one tablespoon at a time.
  3. With a spoon or with your fingers, shape the dough into biscuit-sized clumps, and drop onto the baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until biscuits begin to brown slightly around the edges.
  5. While the biscuits bake, prepare the warm butter mixture by mixing together the melted butter, oregano and garlic salt in a small bowl. As soon as the biscuits are removed from the oven, brush the biscuits (while they are still on the baking sheet) with the mixture.
  6. Serve warm.
