Goat Cheese Drop Biscuits | Manic Mondays

by Melissa on February 14, 2011

My husband loves bread. It really doesn’t matter what type of bread: New York style bagels, herb focaccia bread, garlic bread sticks, sandwiches, biscuits… he’ll eat it and love it. So, as a mini Valentine’s day gift, I made some goat cheese drop biscuits in my new cast iron skillet (from FoodBlogSouth).

This is my first post in my Manic Monday series, where I’m going to share a quick and easy recipe for those crazy Mondays. I may share a recipe that you can quickly whip up for lunch or an easy dinner recipe that you can make for your family after a long day of work.

These flaky, cheesy biscuits are great for breakfast or as a side for dinner, and are so easy to make. Home cooked taste (and texture!) with little hassle, my favorite! This recipe was inspired by this one by Whole Foods, I used goat cheese instead of the cheddar cheese in the recipe.

Ingredients (makes 12 biscuits):
2 cups self-rising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, divided
4 tablespoons goat cheese, crumbled
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup grated white cheddar cheese

Let’s Bake!
1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Place 10-inch cast iron skillet in the oven while the oven heats.
2. Mix together the self-rising flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl.
3. Cut in 4 tablespoons butter using a pastry blender or two butter knives, until it reaches a crumbly consistency. Stir in the goat cheese.
4. Make a well in the middle of the ingredients and pour in the buttermilk and stir the mixture until just moistened.
5. Remove the hot skillet from the oven and place one tablespoon of butter in it and swirl to melt.
6. When the butter has melted, make ping-pong sized dough balls and drop them into the hot skillet. (It’s okay if the biscuits touch.)
7. Optional: Melt remaining tablespoon of butter and brush tops of biscuits with melted butter.
8. Return the skillet into the oven and bake 14 – 16 minutes until the tops of the biscuits are lightly golden brown.
9. Remove the biscuits from the oven and sprinkle the grated white cheddar cheese on top of the biscuits.
10. Serve the biscuits warm. Enjoy!

I served the biscuits with this white lasagna.
