If you are a fan of cheddar cheese biscuits you must try my cheddar chive biscuits which takes the taste up one notch in flavour.
I don’t know about you guys but I love cheese and so does the rest of the family.
We often buy cheese when it’s on sale and freeze it so we always have cheese in the house especially for cooking.
Adding cheese to biscuits seems like a natural thing to do but you can turn any plain biscuit into something magical in your mouth with a host of flavours sweet or savoury.
My garden is now in full bloom with my veggies growing at extra speed with all this rain we’ve been getting.
My chives have done exceptionally well considering I’ve left them out all winter long. Mind you it’s pretty hard to kill chives, spring onions and garlic.
I have already cut them about 3 times and they continue to produce for me. I’m sure if I take them in over the winter with my luck things would be different.
Cheddar chive biscuits
Tonight I am making my bruschetta pasta salad and these cheddar chive biscuits to go alongside this dish. I find the bruschetta pasta salad brings out the full flavour of the cheesy biscuits.
Yes, I will share my bruschetta pasta salad on the blog now that I’ve mentioned it because I’m pretty sure you’re wanting to make it with this simple biscuit recipe. I make these cheddar chive biscuits quite a bit as they go with just about anything.
My family enjoys them hot or cold with soup, salad, pasta and almost any main dishes. I have even made cheddar chive biscuits and topped it on a creamy chicken dish!
The list is endless of what you can add into these cheddar chive biscuits. I like to put in jalapenos to spice them up and even sun-dried tomatoes just to give it an extra twist of flavour.
You know me, I love to experiment with texture and flavours of foods I create. If you love bagels check out my bagel recipe and add in the above flavours to make a delicious snack.
