ingredients needed for homemade biscuits

What You’ll Need

  • butter, unsalted or salted– In most of my recipes I use salted butter, either work just fine in this recipe.
  • buttermilk– The buttermilk is a key ingredient for my biscuits. No substitutions here. Find it near the milk section of the grocery store.
  • all-purpose flour– The flour is part of the dry ingredients for the homemade biscuits.
  • baking powder– Find baking powder in the grocery store’s baking isle, it is a key ingredient in may baking recipes. It helps in rising the biscuits.
  • kosher salt– Kosher salt is a coarse salt. I prefer using it in my cooking and baking.
  • Lawry’s Garlic Salt– Any garlic salt will work, if you can find Lawry’s brand it is a good one.
  • shredded cheddar cheese– I use cheddar cheese for my biscuits, other varieties will work too.
  • diced green chilies– Diced green chilies can be found in the canned vegetables or Ethnic food section. They are mild, but can be left out if needed.
  • cooked crumbled bacon– I use the ready microwave bacon for quick cooked bacon. Make sure it’s crispy and crumbled.

How To Make Homemade Biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. Place butter in a medium heat proof mixing bowl and microwave until melted, about 60 seconds. Slowly whisk in buttermilk to combine. Don’t worry if buttermilk gets clumpy in butter. It mixes in just fine with the dry ingredients.
  3. Place flour, baking powder, salt and garlic salt into a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine then slowly fold in butter/buttermilk until just combined. Fold in cheese, bacon pieces and green chiles to combine as well.
  4. With a large cookie scoop or 1/3 measuring cup, place biscuit dough onto your prepared baking sheet at least 1 inch apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until puffed and cooked through. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before handling.
  5. Place butter and green chiles into a medium mixing bowl. Stir until well combined then use for spreading on insides of warm split rolls if desired, they great on their own as well.

Give biscuit batter one last gentle mix and get ready to transfer to your baking sheet.

I used a large ice cream scoop to place the dough onto my baking sheet. It’s equal to about 1/3 cup. Anything works, even a spoon. I pressed each little mound of dough flat like this and shaped into a thick round. Time to bake!

Serve my homemade biscuits warm with many meal options. They’re great with eggs during breakfast or brunch. They’re delicious with soups and chili as well for dipping.

How To Store Leftovers

Store any leftover biscuits in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat as needed.
