May 28, 2017 – Recipe
I love to bake, it is soothing and allows me to share a little love with others around me. My dad was a master baker in the Fall River/New Bedford, MA area for over 50 years, and even he had short cuts at home when short on time but wanted something fresh from the oven. My short cut for over 30 years has been Jiffy All Purpose Baking Mix, like Bisquik but with a better flavor and is made by a New England company out of Chelsea, MA. Last night, Brian and I were just worn out from our day but we love to sit down for a hot dinner and discuss our day, this has been a large part of our day while cruising on our sailboat over the past 3 years. I needed to come up with a quick meal without much effort, the result was baked macaroni & cheese, and cheddar cheese biscuits with a twist.
1 cup Jiffy Baking Mix
Fresh oregano chopped
1-2 cloves of freshly chopped garlic
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp ground black pepper
¼ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
½ finely chopped jalapeno pepper
1/3 cup milk (may need a little more depending on how dry the mixture is)
Mix all above ingredients. This recipe makes 4 drop biscuits perfect for a couple’s dinner. I like to use parchment paper when baking, helps with the cleanup. Drop the biscuits on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees.
Here is your chance to create a simple biscuit, Brian loves spicy food, that is why the jalapeno is added, I would rather have a sweet biscuit so an alternative to all the other add ins, you could try some honey and maybe a small amount of cold butter added into the batter.
Hope you enjoy!
