Cheddar and Chive Biscuits


I've always been a sucker for biscuits. As a kid, I would be the one at the table to order my dinner and then an order of biscuits on the side. This shocked no one as my love for bread has always outshined any other food group because let's be honest, who doesn't love carbs. So if you're anything like me when it comes to bread, this ones for you!

Quick and delicious

These biscuits are loaded up with cheddar and are so easy to make too- only taking 25 minutes all together. They're buttery, fluffy, cheesy (of course), and have that extra herby touch with the chives mixed in. They are one of my new go to's when making a special dinner that I want a yummy, carb-loaded side to go with.

Fresh chives add that extra something to these cheesy biscuits. They are 100% a necessary ingredient to these cheddar biscuits so make sure not to omit them. I personally love herbs and the pairing of the chives and cheddar for these biscuits is a match made in heaven. Add the buttery flavor to that and I'm not sure how anyone could resist.

The perfect size

These cheddar biscuits are more of your traditional "drop biscuit" as opposed to a layered biscuit. This makes them slightly smaller in size and even easier to grab and pop in your mouth! The insides are still super flakey and fluffy and this even makes them a little easier to whip up in a pinch as well.

When I tell you these are addicting I mean it... top with some additional chopped chives if desired and you're good to go! I personally would have these as a side to a warm, comfort food dinner, but they can also be the perfect snack to grab in a pinch too!
