Easy Cheddar And Chive Biscuits Fresh and Hot From Your Oven

Plain British biscuits/scones are delicious but you must try my hot from the oven cheddar chive biscuits with salty butter.

I love a nice sharp cheddar cheese as does the rest of the family which is why I chose to add cheese and chives to a classic British recipe.

We often buy cheese on sale and freeze it so we always have cheese in the house especially for baking or just to snack on.

You may find that when you freeze cheese that it crumbles when you defrost it but it tastes the same.

Grating your cheddar cheese before you put it in the freezer is definitely an option.

Herbs and Biscuits

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 which is why I always grow it.

I have already cut them about 3 times and they continue to produce for me which is never a bad thing.

I’m sure if I take them in over the winter with my luck things would be different.

Tonight I am making my bruschetta pasta salad and these cheddar chive biscuits to go alongside this dish.

Pairing the biscuits with my bruschetta pasta salad brings out the full flavor of the cheesy biscuits.

I make these cheddar chive biscuits quite a bit as they go with just about any meal as a side dish.

My family enjoys them hot or cold with soup, salad, pasta or even heated with a bit of marmalade carrot jam

I have even made cheddar chive biscuits and topped it on a creamy chicken dish or even on a pot of beef stew.

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 the texture and flavours of foods I create.

  1. Ladies I make these all the time and they don’t last long in this house especially if they are just out the oven and smothered with butter! It’s a great biscuit for any meal lasagne especially I sometimes put in mozzarella in there too and some Jack too. The list is endless! We are odd to the town activities on Canada Day and then a baseball game the only one we will see this year as the boys will be busy with football!

  2. Chives are hard to kill indeed!! You can harvest and freeze them for the winter and just pull some out and chop to use in the winter. I’ve had chives seed themselves here and there in the garden so if you find a clump somewhere else in the garden just dig them up and pot for the winter too. If they make it through the winter, great…if not you still have the main plant going so,you are still good to go. My pot of chives made in through the last winter in the garage all dried out.we couldn’t get in to water but they still made it!!
    I’m thinking these might be yummy with any baked pasta dish like lasagna or my sister-in-law’s manicotti…. The oven is on anyway so just pop these in with out heating the kitchen anymore than the main dish. A big deal for those of us without A/C in the house.. Hope you have a wonderful Canada Day with the family Nicola!!!!,
