Today is Sunday and it’s time to share another recipe from “Off the Shelf Baking”. This one is on page 67, the picture above is on page 137. I grew up on homemade biscuits with my mom and grandmom. They both loved to bake bread. In fact, I’ve said this before but my mom enjoyed baking more than cooking. I was the opposite, although it wasn’t that I didn’t like desserts cause you know how I love sweets. I just felt intimidated trying to bake so I let mom do that and she let me do the cooking.
This recipe is right up my alley because of how much I love green onions and I use them all the time, just never thought about using them to bake biscuits.
5.2 oz. container semisoft cheese with garlic and herbs
1/2 c. sliced green onions (2)
1 12-oz. pkg. (10) refrigerated biscuits
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
Sliced green onions
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet, set aside. In a small bowl, stir together semisoft cheese and the 1/4 cup green onions, set aside.
Step 2: Unwrap biscuits. Using your fingers, gently split the biscuits horizontally. Place the biscuit bottoms on prepared baking sheet. Spread about 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture over each biscuit bottom. Replace biscuit tops.
Step 3: In a small bowl, use a fork to beat together egg yolk and the water. Brush biscuit tops with egg yolk mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and additional sliced green onions.
Step 4: Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
Makes 10 biscuits.
