I love blue cheese, absolutely love it. I will often buy a big chunk or container of crumbles, use it many times over and then I tend to forget about it, in the back of the fridge. When I come across it again, it is a bit aged, still good mind you, just stronger and not quite as pretty on a salad.
Cheese should never be wasted, never I say! These biscuits are just the ticket to use up and enjoy all that delicious blue cheese flavor.

Blue Cheese Biscuits
adapted from: Adventures in Life and Food
makes 1 dozen drop biscuits
2 1/4 c flour
2 1/2 t baking powder
3/4 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 T sugar
6 T butter cut into small cubes
1 c crumbled blue cheese
1/2 c grated Colby Jack cheese
1/4 c chopped onion, sauteed until golden brown and cooled OR 2 green onions sliced thin
1 c buttermilk
Combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt and sugar. Whisk to combine. Cut in butter until mixture is the texture of cornmeal or coarse crumbs. I usually do this by hand, pinching the butter into the flour.
Stir in cheeses and onions, gently mixing to combine. Add buttermilk and stir to moisten evenly.
Drop into 12 equal sized mounds on prepared baking sheet.
