Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper together into a large bowl. Mash grated butter into the flour mixture until the result resembles coarse crumbs. Mix blue cheese, bacon, and 2 cloves minced garlic into the flour mixture.

  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour buttermilk into the well and mix with your hands until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Drop mixture by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Switch oven to preheat the broiler.

  • Stir melted butter and 1 clove minced garlic together in a small bowl; brush over the top of the biscuits.

  • Heat biscuits under the broiler just until the tops are browned, about 2 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I use frozen butter that I shred with a cheese grater to make it easier to cut into the flour.

You can add 1 tablespoon of parsley-garlic seasoning to the flour mixture for extra flavor.

Regular milk can replace buttermilk, if preferred.

Yum! How can you go wrong with bacon blue cheese and garlic? I ended up with 5 slices of bacon after breakfast this morning so I used them and I don't think I had as much blue cheese as called for in the recipe. I also did not return them to the oven to broil after the garlic butter was added. These are very good and will be made again. I think they would be good with chopped green onion mixed in too.
