Cheesy-Garlicy-Peppery Biscuits {Secret Recipe Club}

For this month’s Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned Suzanne’s blog Thru the Bugs on My Windshield. I love her take on life. The quote on her site says it all: “Life is like a windshield. There’s gonna be a few bug splats along the way.” Suzanne loves spending time with her ever-expanding family, taking pictures that make people smile and cooking traditional comfort food.

I was immediately intrigued by the fact that she enjoyed making comfort food. As with each Secret Recipe Club assignment, I wanted to find something I had yet to make. Biscuits are considered a treat in our house. They are not something I serve often. We usually have them with breakfast and they have always been from a package.  I was excited to see that Suzanne had a recipe for a savory biscuit that can be served with a hearty dinner.

They are incredibly easy to make. I had all the ingredients on hand, which made this recipe even more appealing to me.

Cheesy-Garlicy-Peppery Biscuits from Thru the Bugs on My Windshield who adapted it from Betty’s Stir ‘N Roll Biscuit recipe.

Cheesy-Garlicy-Peppery Biscuits {Secret Recipe Club}

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 22 minutes

Yield: 16

Savory biscuits that serve as the perfect accompaniment to a hearty dinner.


2 cups all-purpose flour

3 tsp baking powder

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1 tsp fresh ground pepper or 1 tsp Hatch Green Chile powder

1/3 cup olive oil

2/3 cup milk

1 cup grated cheddar cheese


Heat oven to 450 degrees.

Put dry ingredients in mixing bowl first and stir around to mix. Then, pour in wet ingredients plus the cheese. Stir until mixture cleans the side of the bowl and forms a ball.

Turn the dough onto a piece of wax paper and knead using another piece of wax paper about 25 times, or until dough has some elasticity and looks smooth. Pat or roll out to about 1/2″ thick between two sheets of wax paper. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.

    My Hubs is a HUGE biscuit fan, but I too don’t serve them too often. These sound great…kind of like the Red lobster ones. I’m stopping by from Secret Recipe club, and would love if you’d stop by our new site March is artichoke month! I’d love if you’d link up your artichoke recipes!

    The biscuits looked wonderful; that cheesy garlic business would take them over the top for sure

    But one question? Can you eat these; I notice they include all purpose flour? Or do you have to make them and then just give them to others? That would be HARD!

      I am able to have gluten in small doses. Thankfully I am gluten intolerant not allergic or suffering from a disease like Celiac. I like to make “regular” recipes every now and then so that I have something to share with family and friends who do not need to live gluten-free. It’s kind of a blessing in disguise. It forces me to only eat stuff like this in small doses. These were so good I would definitely eat more than one if they were gluten-free.
