Whole Grain and Cheddar Cheese Drop Biscuits

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Do you buy a block of cheese? And sometimes does the wrapper come off in the refrigerator, and the end of the block gets a little dried out? And you cut off about 1/4 inch slice all across the entire block? And you think "I hate to waste cheese!"? And you wish you could do something with it?

Easy drop biscuits with cheddar cheese.

Cut cheddar cheese into small cubes and let dry 24 hours, the dried cheese does not melt and run out of your biscuit!
Well, you can. Go ahead and slice off that dry end, but do not throw it away. Then slice off another 1/4 inch of cheese, and if that block of cheese is small, you might want to cut off two 1/4 inch slices. Then dice it all up, say about 1/4 inch in size and leave it on a plate or cutting board to "air dry". You can put this in a cupboard overnight, allowing the cheese cubes to dry and yet stay safe from any flying kitchen visitors.

Then make these cheddar drop biscuits!

I have been drying cheese just like this, on purpose for years to use in baked goods, because I wanted the cheese to stay in the baked item, not melt and run out all over the baking pan. Remember the Fluffy Biscuit Muffins? These drop biscuits are a simple spin-off from that recipe and a great way to use up that unfortunate cheese!

  1. This is a new one one me! I am planning to make a loaf of Cheddar Cheese Bread this afternoon. The recipe calls for shredded cheese, but I might go ahead and dice it, then leave it to dry for a few hours. ---Rocquie

  2. What a great way to use dried cheese!

  3. Oh my gosh! Your biscuit recipe is a must try! They look and sound delicious, love that cheese. Thanks for the recipe and have a good week!

    1. We love these and it is the perfect size recipe for the two of us.

  4. I absolutely love drop biscuits because of the crunchy little tips that form when baked.

    This is a great trick for salvaging what would normally be wasted and a great trick for not allowed the cheese to melt!
