This month I received the blog On The Move - In The Gallery
. There were so many lovely recipes for me to select from but I narrowed it down to the Green Onion Drop Biscuits
. Biscuits have always been a scary food to me. I never made them before and always thought it would be very difficult. I was making bean and ham soup last week and decided that I needed to give it a try. It sounded easy enough and the thought of the biscuits with the soup was too good to pass up. To my delight the biscuits came together very easily. I am a little annoyed with myself for waiting so long to try a recipe! I stayed close to the original recipe, but used plain Greek yogurt over regular plain yogurt. I love the idea of using all different types of ingredients in biscuits and am excited to try different combinations.
Thank you for a delicious new recipe and a nudge to step outside my comfort zone.
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
2 Tbl cold unsalted butter, grated or cut into small pieces
1/4 cup minced green onion, green and white parts
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
several dashes of your favorite hot sauce, optional (I used Sriracha)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Sift the first 5 ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Add the butter and incorporate with a fork until you have a mealy texture.
Gently stir in the green onion, yogurt and hot sauce. Mix just until the soft and sticky dough just comes together.
Divide the dough into 6 portions and drop by heaping spoonfuls onto a silpat or parchment covered baking sheet. Bake on the middle shelf the oven for 12 to 15 minutes (mine only needed 13 minutes), until lightly golden brown. Be careful not to over bake and enjoy warm.
