Green Onion Biscuits

Inspiration:
Green onions from my CSA, leftover buttermilk, a need for something to serve with Citi's Chicken, and a recipe from Light & Tasty

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
  • softened butter (just a few tablespoons)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar (optional)

Instructions:
  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Combine the buttermilk, onions and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Lightly spread a small amount of softened butter on the top of each biscuit Sprinkle with a little cheddar cheese. Bake at 400° for 14-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

My Notes: I don't use any "cooking spray" type items, so I replaced the cooking sprays in the original recipe with some real butter. I also added a little cheddar since I love cheese!

Recipe Notes: Yields 16 biscuits.
