Oh My Potluck!

Good recipes to share with friends.

The Next Order of Biscuits: Cheese

The Next Order of Biscuits: Cheese | OhMyPotluck.comThese cheese-loaded, buttery biscuits are such a treat and make a high-quality potluck offering. They stand up very nicely on their own, but are also capable of soaking up leftover sauces.

You may have noticed that the posting rate on OhMyPotluck.com has decreased since the start of the year. I’m trying to take things a bit slower these days and am spending time pursuing other hobbies. But have no fear: I’m not giving up my kitchen adventures anytime soon.

I’ve actually been pretty busy in the kitchen, exploring the science behind cooking. I’m taking a great course offered through edx.org. I’m learning a bunch of cool tricks to use. Keep an eye out for more original recipes in the remainder of 2015 (and beyond).

This Science & Cooking is really fun! Chemistry, physics, math, culture and food all meet and I love it. We’re doing real experiments with basic kitchen equipment to find out how tastes develop and how different food molecules behave. The class has only just begun, but I can’t wait to dive deeper.

The only thing missing from the class is music. There’s probably some research out there that explores how music affects people’s experience of food (if you know of any off the top of your head, please leave a comment below). I don’t need any proof; food and music have an essential bond.

This week I’ve got an energy-filled track by tUnE-yArDs that takes music to a whole new level of wild. “Bizness” will surely get you dancing around the kitchen while you mix up this order of biscuits:


Let’s get baking!

The Next Order of Biscuits: Cheese

Makes 1 dozen

(Found on KitchMe, with biscuits inspired by Alton Brown)

Biscuits (or use your favourite recipe)

  • 4 cups flour
  • 6 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups buttermilk, chilled

Topping

  • 4 ounces grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 ounces comte cheese, grated
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 450˚F (230˚C). Prepare a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare a large, flat surface with a dusting of flour to roll out the biscuit dough on. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar together in a large bowl. Cut in the butter until the dough comes together in small, pea-sized clumps. Pour in the buttermilk and knead six to ten times. Turn the dough out onto the floured surface, folding about four times. Push down the dough so it’s an even 1-inch thick. Use a 2-inch round cookie cutter or the rim of a glass to cut biscuits out. Place them on the baking sheet then let them sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  3. While the dough is refrigerating, stir together all the topping ingredients in a medium bowl.
  4. When the dough is ready, make two cuts on the top of each biscuit then put a spoonful of topping on each. Bake the biscuits for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool completely before packing up and bringing to the potluck.
