Garlic Cheddar Biscuits…Our New Cornbread

 
I am a bread lover.  I can’t help it. I get it honest.  I blame it on my mama.  She made cornbread on top of the stove whenever the mood hit her, which was usually at least two times a week.  With neck bones, fried fish or Crowder peas and rice, cornbread was a staple that hung out on the edge of our plates.  I am not necessarily a cornbread fan.  But two (maybe even three) times a week I offer a slice of some type of white bread. I know wheat bread is better. And I do try my best to eat more wheat bread than white.  But white bread…it’s like soda to me, a splurge wrapped in a nice serving of guilt and pleasure. 
The kiddos have taken on my bread habit.  On any given meal, especially one that involves gravy, you are likely to find a biscuit hanging on the edge of our plates, not cornbread.  I like to think I’ve started a new tradition, good or bad.

Brush melted butter over biscuit dough (I used butter I infused with 2 cloves of roasted garlic to give that extra garlicky flavor).

Place biscuits in 9 inch round baking pan – with biscuits touching one another.

Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom– every oven is different. Use a fork to gently lift one biscuit to check for a golden brown bottom. Once biscuits are golden brown on the bottom, turn oven to broil.  Leave biscuits on broil for about 2 minutes or until golden brown on top.

 

WARNING:   Do not, I repeat DO NOT leave the oven for any reason at this point.  On broil your delicious biscuits will burn in the blink of an eye.
