These gluten free Cheddar Drop Biscuits are so easy to make. Cheddar cheese + garlic give these biscuits an amazing flavor. A perfect addition to any meal.
I love drop biscuits! Really, I do. They’re so delicious and incredibly easy to make. I love everything about them – their crispy on the outside + fluffy on the inside texture, their simplicity and that comforting feeling that they create. They are total comfort food.
I make these all the time for my family. They’re the perfect addition to a meal when I need to make something fast. I make them every time we have chicken, veggies and gravy. I make them to go with soups and stews. They’re super yummy with salads and a good hearty breakfast. We love to have these with eggs and bacon on the weekends too.
Grate up a bunch of yummy cheddar cheese. I use a delicious organic raw mild cheddar, but sharp cheddar would be delicious too.
Grab some garlic and slice it up … or chop it, whatever you feel like doing … it won’t matter anyway, you’re just going to use it to infuse the butter. Yes, butter. Don’t leave this part out. It truly makes these biscuits over the top amazing.
And get ready to get your hands messy. Or … get your kids in the kitchen to help you mix up the dough. Kids always love getting their hands dirty and making the dough.
The dough is so easy to make + only takes minutes. That’s the beauty of drop biscuits, there’s no kneading to do and your arm won’t get tired from having to stir anything. In fact, you don’t want to over mix this dough at all. If you over mix biscuit dough, chances are you’re going to have a tough biscuit … not what you’re going for. You want little pieces of butter to remain intact in the dough. This helps create that delectable goodness that you want in a biscuit.
Put these onto your next weekly meal plan. And if you’re like my family, you’re going to want to have these often. They’re that good.
GLUTEN FREE CHEDDAR DROP BISCUITS
- 1 cup organic sprouted brown rice flour
- 1 cup tapioca flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon organic dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (<--this is my favorite sea salt)
- 1/2 teaspoon organic garlic powder
- 6 tablespoons cold pasture butter, cut into tablespoons
- 1 1/4 cups organic cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 cup organic/raw/grass-fed whole milk
To Brush on the Hot Biscuits
- 4 tablespoons pasture butter
- 3 organic garlic cloves, finely sliced or chopped
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine sprouted brown rice flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, dried thyme, sea salt and garlic powder. Stir with a fork.
- Add cold butter cut into tablespoons. Using clean hands, gently start to break up and mix the butter into the flour mixture. Make sure to keep the butter somewhat intact and in small pieces. Take care not to over mix.
- Stir in grated cheese, mix with your hands or a fork/spoon.
- Add milk to the biscuit mixture. Stir just until incorporated and it becomes a sticky dough. Do not over mix.
- Drop spoonfuls of dough on parchment paper lined baking sheet. [Note: I usually make 10 biscuits and use 2 baking sheets, spacing the dough at least 2 1/2 inches apart.]
- Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until edges become light golden brown.
- While biscuits are baking, add 4 tablespoons of butter and sliced garlic to a medium-size saucepan. Over medium heat, bring butter to a low simmer and cook for about 1 minute or until the garlic starts to turn light golden brown. Take care not to burn the butter. Remove from heat and set aside.
- As soon as biscuits are done baking, use a basting brush to coat the tops of the biscuits with the melted garlic-butter.
- Serve immediately.
The biscuits are best served immediately. They can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for an extra day. My family likes to reheat them on a low temperature in the oven the next day.
INGREDIENTS I USED: I used this sprouted brown rice flour and this tapioca flour. I used Organic Valley raw mild cheddar, but sharp cheddar would be delicious too. I used this organic garlic powder and this organic dried thyme. I used Organic Valley pasture butter, it's my absolute favorite. If you can't find it at a store near you, Kerrygold is another great brand.
