Cheesy Onion Biscuit Wedges

We really enjoy these fast biscuits and the light onion flavor paired with cheddar cheese is, well…. yummy! 🙂  I switched them up just a tad because we don’t usually have buttermilk and I am often too lazy to make the substitute. haha  These are great served alongside meat dishes, such as my crock-pot chicken pot roast.  When I’m serving these for company, I like to prepare them in the morning, place on the greased baking sheet, cover lightly with plastic wrap and poke them in the fridge.  When I’m ready later, I stick them in the preheated oven and they cook up great!

  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter cut in pea sized pieces
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup whole milk

Saute onion for just a few minutes in a small frying pan until softened.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder, and oregano.  Add in butter and kind of mush it around with your hand until mixture gets a little crumbly and the pieces aren’t as noticeable.  Stir in onion and cheese.  Stir in milk – mixture will be thick and sticky.

Scrape it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 8-10 times.  Add more flour as necessary.  Just add a little at a time as you’re kneading until it’s not super sticky.  Pat it into a circle and cut into four wedges.  Place wedges on a greased baking sheet a couple inches apart from each other and bake 8-12 minutes or lightly golden on top.  Serve warm!

FYI: this recipe doubles very nicely 🙂
