WFMW- Cheddar Biscuits

Do you have a go-to recipe? You know, that thing you make when you don't know what else to put on the table?

Mine is Cheddar biscuits. I know everyone has a variation of this recipe, but this has become my side dish when 1)I don't know what else to make, 2)I don't have anything else to make, or 3)I'm craving carbs!

It's really easy, and you most likely have everything you need to make them in your pantry right now.

Half Whole Wheat Cheddar Biscuits (makes 10-12 biscuits)

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 TBS baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
2 1/2 TBS butter (cold or room temperature)
3/4 cup of shredded cheese (I usually use sharp cheddar, but any kind would work)
1/2 cup buttermilk (just use 1/2 cup of milk and pour in 1 1/2 tsp vinegar. Let it sit for 5-10 min, or until bubbly)
1 Tbs butter, melted
1/4 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp garlic powder
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 425. Mix flours, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter and mix in with a pastry cutter, or fork until mixture is crumbly. Carefully mix in cheese. Stir in milk until just combined (do not overmix-dry spots are okay). Use a spoon to drop onto cookie sheet or stone. Cook for 12-14 minutes or until golden. While biscuits are in oven, mix together topping ingredients. Pour on top of biscuits as soon as they come out of the oven. Serve warm!! They will melt in your mouth:)

What is your go-to recipe when you don't know what to make?

Much love,
