Green Onion and Cheddar Biscuits Recipe

Green Onion and Cheddar Biscuits

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen lately.

No, it’s not just because I’ve been busy coming up with new recipes; I think this is my way of coping with stress. I recently did an interview about leaders and talking about my experiences of how I embody my values in leadership with everything I do from work to my food blog- and it was during that response that it hit me: am I practicing what I preach?

Guys, I think I just hit my quarter-life crisis. I guess baking is a less-than-conventional way of dealing with stress, however it does improve a multitude of skills and it does bring out delicious results. Pretty cool part is I’m learning a lot from my dad who is a pro in the kitchen and has had his fair share of life experiences to help me through this rut.

Green Onion and Cheddar Biscuits

On a lighter note, biscuits are one of my many guilty pleasures and I absolutely love the combination here with old cheddar and green onion.

I was always told that the biscuits at Red Lobster are really good, but the flavour left much to be desired. I was also not happy with the fact that they seemed excessively greasy and salty. #SorryNotSorry to fans of the chain and their food, but it just doesn’t quite cut it for me.

If you look around the web, the proportion of ingredients is about the same- this yields a beautifully flakey biscuit. After you have mastered those steps, playing around with the ingredients to get different flavours is the fun part.

I do hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did (and a few taste testers).

    I love biscuits too! And my kids love waking up to them. These will be on next week’s menu!

    • That’s amazing! I have a bunch of little cousins and butter baked goods seem to always do well with them. Let me know how it goes!

    I just had dinner at Red Lobster a few days ago! I agree, the biscuits don’t really have a lot of flavour. Your version looks delicious!

    interesting recipe! I don’t eat dairy so I’ve never tried the biscuits at Red Lobster. But my husband and in laws LOVE THEM. I could probably try this out at home for them. 🙂

    Oops! The previous comment was an error of inattention. I’ve never been to Red Lobster, but I can’t imagine they’d serve anything that looks this good.
