Roasted Red Pepper and Parmesan Biscuits



We definitely like eating heartier and more filling meals when the weather starts cooling down a bit. In between soccer games and working at home in the evenings, I have been able to get a little cooking and baking done. These are "drop" biscuits, easier than rolled ones to make. They are packed full of deliciousness and are the most requested item in my repertoire. They are fantastic with soups and Italian dishes.

Makes 6 biscuits

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch cayenne
Pinch black pepper
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into chips
1/3 cup finely chopped roasted red bell peppers
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Siplat .

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne, black pepper and mix well. Cut in the butter until it resembles coarse meal. Add roasted peppers, cheese and the milk and stir the mixture until it just forms a dough. Drop the dough in 6 mounds, about 2 inches apart onto the baking sheet. Bake until they are golden, 15 to 18 minutes.
Bring one the cold weather!!!

I love drop biscuits with a big bowl of homemade soup! I'm making cheddar soup this Thursday - these would be the perfect pairing!

How easy it that recipe?

I love that its such a quick recipe. I wish I had a warm one right now with butter on it!

Bridgett said...

Two of the most perfect flavors, in my opinion, for a biscuit. These sound amazing!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh how I love these biscuits... There was a place in NC where we used to go and get their Garlic, Cheese Biscuits --and they were the best I've ever had. That place left the area --and I haven't found good ones like that since. I will try your recipe sometime.

How are you???? Haven't heard from you in forever it seems..
Hugs,
Betsy

Glad to see you back! Those look delish, I am just now mastering the biscuit!

The Japanese Redneck said...

I know the recipe is "roasted red pepper", but I'd have to make it into "something else" and parmesan biscuits.

I hate bell pepper. Can't get past the taste and the texture either.

I guess when you hate something - you just hate it.

Hey I tasted the store bought version of the moonshine and it was not bad, and that IS coming from a girl who likes scotch :)

Mary said...

These look seriously outside the ball park. I'll have to give these a try. I'm thinking soup or stew would be perfect with your biscuits

MMMM...what's not to love! I would probably gobble up the whole batch, though. ;)

Tomorrow night is homemade tomato soup and your biscuits are definitely on the menu. The flavors sound delicious. Thanks so much for sharing!!

I made your shrimp creole recipe the other night for a crowd--and it was gone before I snapped a picture! Top notch, Katherine!
