Cheddar-Scallion Biscuits

Cheddar-Scallion Biscuits are a delightful savory treat, packed with sharp cheddar cheese and fresh scallions. These fluffy and cheesy biscuits make a great addition to brunch or as a side for soups and stews.

Here’s a recipe for Cheddar-Scallion Biscuits:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions (green onions)
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter (for brushing)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the cold cubed butter to the flour mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese and chopped scallions until evenly distributed.
  5. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Stir until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead the dough a few times until it holds together.
  7. Roll or pat the dough to a thickness of about 1 inch. Use a round biscuit cutter or a drinking glass to cut out biscuits from the dough. Place the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each biscuit.
  8. Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter.
  9. Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  10. Remove the biscuits from the oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool slightly.

Serve the warm Cheddar-Scallion Biscuits on their own or alongside your favorite soups, stews, or brunch dishes. Enjoy the flaky and cheesy goodness of these delightful biscuits.

Wine Pairing

Cheddar-Scallion biscuits are delicious and flavorful, and they pair well with a range of wines. Here are a few wine recommendations to complement the flavors of Cheddar-Scallion biscuits:

  1. Chardonnay: A medium to full-bodied Chardonnay with a touch of oak can be an excellent match for Cheddar-Scallion biscuits. The wine’s richness and creamy texture can harmonize with the savory flavors of the biscuits, while the bright acidity helps balance the richness.
  2. Sauvignon Blanc: For a refreshing and vibrant pairing, consider a Sauvignon Blanc. Look for a Sauvignon Blanc with a good acidity and herbal notes. The wine’s crispness and citrusy flavors can provide a nice contrast to the rich and cheesy biscuits.
  3. Pinot Noir: If you prefer red wine, a light to medium-bodied Pinot Noir can complement the flavors of Cheddar-Scallion biscuits. Look for a Pinot Noir with bright acidity and red fruit flavors. The wine’s delicate tannins and earthy notes can work well with the savory and herbal elements of the biscuits.
  4. Sparkling Wine: For a festive pairing, consider a dry sparkling wine, such as Champagne or Prosecco. The effervescence and acidity of sparkling wine can cut through the richness of the biscuits, while the toasty and yeasty flavors can enhance the overall experience.
  5. Riesling: If you enjoy off-dry or slightly sweet wines, a Riesling can be an interesting choice. Look for a Riesling with balanced acidity and fruity notes. The wine’s touch of sweetness can provide a nice contrast to the savory flavors of the biscuits.
