Let’s talk biscuit love, okay? My love for biscuits runs deep…but, I have to admit I didn’t find this love until a few years ago. See, my biscuit experiences were few and far between before I started cooking for myself. We just didn’t grow up with warm and fluffy biscuits and really, it’s a shame. But, now I’m making up time and make biscuits at least once a month, if not more.
I mean, biscuits are the perfect, carb-y vehicle for all sorts of goodness and these Romano and Sage Biscuits are definitely a favorite this time of year. In these cooler months I like to pack as much sage into my food as possible, I love it! It just tastes of the season…and, you can’t ever go wrong with adding cheese to things. Just can’t. These particular biscuits are savory, petite, and tender. They would make perfect little two-bite leftover sandwiches for that big turkey-centric holiday coming up, or even the perfect foil for some sausage gravy. Biscuit Heaven. Speaking of biscuit-sandiwch-love, check out this post I did for my friends at Betty & Bisquick for a Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich Bar. There are sandwich ideas, as well as easy decor and craft ideas. I’m shameless, I know…but that green bean stacked biscuit-wich is so dang good, you guys should know about it.
Romano & Sage Biscuits
Adapted from this recipe.
I REALLY like sage, so I did 3 tablespoons, if you are lukewarm about it, definitely reduce the amount. I also used a mini biscuit cutter for these, but any size is fine. Larger biscuits will take a minute or two more of bake time.
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 scant teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter, cubed
2-3 tablespoons chopped, fresh sage
heaping 1/3 cup grated romano cheese
1/4 cup cream
3/4 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 425˚F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
In a mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender or fingers, quickly cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles a coarse meal, with a few pea-sized lumps of butter throughout. Toss in the sage and romano to combine. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and add the cream and milk. Stir gently until the liquid is just incorporated and turn out onto a floured surface. Knead a few times (5-ish) to form a dough and pat into a 1/2 inch round. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place on prepared baking sheets. Gather the scraps and cut out remaining biscuits. Bake in the center of the oven for 10 minutes or until puffed and golden on the bottoms. Best served warm. [/recipe]
