Cheddar Drop Biscuits

It's Thanksgiving week here at An Eat'n Man, so I've decided to post a trio of awesome bread recipes to supplement those ubiquitous Parker House rolls that always get served.  First up are some awesome cheddar drop biscuits.

These biscuits are reminiscent of those served at a certain seafood establishment named for a reddish crustacean, but I think this version is even better.  Fix ya up a mess of 'um, and see if I ain't right.

Cheddar Drop Biscuits

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Sugar
2 Teaspoons Salt
1 Cup Buttermilk
1 Stick Unsalted Butter,
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar

Preheat oven to 475F.  Grease a sheet pan.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt until thoroughly combined.  Add the cheddar and mix this in thoroughly as well.

In another bowl, combine the buttermilk with the melted butter and stir until clumps of butter start to form.

Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until just combined.

Use a greased tablespoon or 1/4 Cup measure to dole out the dough...

...and 'drop' it on the sheet pan.

Repeat until you've used all your dough.  Should make about 12 biscuits.

Brush with additional melted butter and then bake at 475F for 12-15 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown and gorgeous.

Serve immediately with some additional butter and your guests will be sufficiently wowed.

Until Next Time,

Drop ya some biscuits, y'all!
