Recipe for Cheesy Scallion Biscuits

My husband was off from work on Wednesday, so when I got home, I found that he had artichokes boiling on the stove top and was ready to throw some chicken breasts on the grill. I decided to make these cheesy scallion biscuits, which are a great compliment to any meal – chicken, steak, pasta, casseroles, even a salad. Because dinner was underway when I got home, I used Bisquick as a short-cut ingredient rather than making the dough from scratch.

2 cups of Bisquick

1/2 cup of chopped scallions (two stalks)

Next, add your cheeses.

Bisquick on countertop

Sprinkle some Bisquick or flour onto a flat surface (countertop, cutting board, etc.).

Place your dough on top of the Bisquick or flour.

kneading cheesy scallion biscuit dough

Knead the dough 15 to 20 times.

rolling out cheesy scallion biscuit dough

Roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it is about 1/2 inch thick. As you can see, I am not the best at rolling out dough and it always ends up in a triangle or square or some strange blobby shape.


Use a biscuit cutter or, since I don’t own a biscuit cutter, a glass or round cookie cutter dipped in Bisquick or flour. Hey, I’ve been using a glass since I was a kid. That’s how my momma taught me. I’m old school.

Cut out your biscuits

and place them in a cast iron biscuit pan. If you don’t have a biscuit pan, you can use a cast iron skillet or cookie sheet. But you should really get the cast iron biscuit pan. It’s the bomb.

Egg and water

Last step before these bad boys go in the oven. Combine an egg and 1 Tbsp. of water to make an egg wash for your biscuits.
