These easy cheese biscuits go great with budget friendly homemade soup. Learn how to easy they are to make from scratch with this recipe.

Easy Cheese BiscuitsAn easy way to reduce my grocery budget is to serve soups – they’re a great use of leftover meat and veggies, and since it’s pretty easy and free to make bone broth out of ingredients I already have on hand, soup is just a cost effective way to manage budget meal prep. As much as I like to serve soups, though, my family often rebels. Please tell me I’m not the only one whose family thinks they deserve more for a meal than soup? Serving nice and easy cheese biscuits along with soup is a popular way to turn a not so favorite meal into a better one.

How to Make Easy Cheese Biscuits

easy cheese biscuitsI use a large scoop to measure out biscuits on my Cuina baking mat. I’ve been wanting to try out a silicone baking mat like this for ages and am so pleased with the end result! I wonder why I waited so long to get a nonstick, silicone baking mat. Drizzle a mix of  butter and garlic on the biscuits.

How to Make Easy Cheese Biscuits & Cuina Giveaway

A yummy cheesy biscuit that resembles Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Perfect accompaniment to soups and stews.

Prep Time 6 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour {I use freshly ground soft white wheat}

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3-1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 TBS melted butter
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients and add milk and cheese.
  3. Drop large dollops on a silicone baking mat.
  4. Mix garlic and butter and pour over biscuits.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. Enjoy!

Notes

A note about freshly ground flour - if you use freshly ground flour, you might want to weigh it for better results. I used 9.4 ounces of flour and then added in a little bit more at the end because I thought the dough looked too wet. Don't be afraid to make adjustments based on how the dough looks. You don't want the dough to be too wet or too dry and I have learned to weigh out the flour the hard way after years of baking almost exclusively with freshly ground flour.

Cuina Kitchen sent me one of their nonstick silicone baking mats to try out. If you’ve never heard of nonstick silicone baking mats, here’s some information from Cuina Kitchen:

The Cuina Nonstick Silicone Baking Mat is the baker’s dream tool. It makes life in the kitchen easy by turning anything into an instant nonstick surface! Place it on cookie trays or in baking pans and baking sheets to make them nonstick! The Cuina Nonstick Silicone Baking Mat replaces parchment paper, tin foil, and grease – that’s right, there’s no need to grease the pans because nothing can stick to them!

    I have heard/read many great things about baking mats, but I still don’t have one. I would love to win and try it for myself. Thank you so much for the chance!

    I would love to win this as I have nothing but great things about these types of mats. From everyday use to baking. I need one! Thanks for the chance 🙂

  3. Pam Gurganus says

    I’d like to win a nonstick silicone baker’s mat because I don’t own one and when I last visited my parents for the holidays and we were doing all our holiday baking, my parents had silicone mats and I love them! They’re so awesome! Thank you very much for the opportunity! 🙂

    I love to make gluten-free crackers of all kinds and I am certain that these Cuina Kitchen nonstick silicone baking mats would make the job of rolling them, cutting them, and baking them soooo much easier!

  5. marla says

    I saw someone use these yesterday to roll out her tortillas incredibly thin. I’d never heard of this kind of product before.

  6. barbara n says

    I currently use parchment paper and the Cuina Kitchen silicon baking mat would be so much better for me!

  7. Amanda P says

    I have never used one before, but have recently been looking at getting one. Would be awesome to win one!!

  8. Michele Cook says

    These are fantastic for baking. Especially sugar cookies. Need multiples to freeze one with dough on baking sheet in freezer to while Im baking another.

  9. Sheryl Cheingthong-Simpson says

    Would love to have a Cuina silicon baking mat so that my baked items will no longer stick to the pan and get broken trying to get them out. How nice it would be to serve WHOLE biscuits for once.

    I love baking with silicone mats, they make clean up a lot easier plus I think your baked goods turn out much better. I’ve never tried this brand before though, looks like very nice quality. Oh and my family does the same thing with soup, I think the biscuits are a nice “filling” addition!

  11. Tonya says

    I used to make this often. I think I will have to try our gluten free version. Love how good it is with freshly ground whole grain, still nice and light.

  12. Sara says

    I love baking and I have not tried using a mat before, would love to win one so I can make delicious food. 🙂

    I just received some new pans for Christmas and want to make them last as long as possible. This would help a lot in keeping them cleaner.

    Great post! When it comes to these types of recipes, it’s always best to get a good quality product, such as the cheese, because it can really make or break a recipe. Thanks for sharing!
