Almost Thanksgiving, you guys! But can I plead with you to still take a look at these biscuits and at least think about adding them to your menu?! Let me present my case:
- They're made with nonfat Greek yogurt (no butter!), so you can totally justify them as a healthy option at the Thanksgiving table. More room for pie.
- They're only SIX ingredients, including salt & pepper! Easy recipes on Thanksgiving are lifesavers.
- They are out of this world delicious. Fluffy, cheesy, peppery, tangy, A-MAZING. These belong with you.
So have I convinced you yet? Here's the recipe, if so...
Peppery Greek Yogurt Cheddar Biscuits
yields 8-10 biscuits
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups plain nonfat Greek yogurt
3/4 cups shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten, for brushing
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix flour, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Create a well in the center and add the yogurt. Stir until just incorporated. Add cheese and stir briefly.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat dough to about 1-inch thick. Cut biscuits using a floured biscuit cutter or knife. Combine dough scraps and roll out again to make remaining biscuits.
Place on baking sheet and brush the tops with egg wash. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the tops are light golden brown. Serve warm!
Enjoy, sweet friends, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! xo
