Works for Me Wednesday – Homemade Biscuits
Biscuits are easy to make and a nice addition to a meal. Here is a basic biscuit recipe I use, and then add some extra ingredients to make them more suitable to a particular meal.
Stir and Roll Biscuits
2 c flour
1 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1/3 c vegetable oil
2/3 c milk
Mix flour, salt, and baking powder. Add milk to oil, then add to dry ingredients. Mix well with fork. Knead lightly. Roll out and cut into biscuits. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
Personally, I think kneading and cutting out biscuits sounds like too much work, so I add extra milk and make them into drop biscuits.
I normally also add some herbs and/or cheese to make the biscuits more tasty. Garlic salt, chives, and cheddar cheese are excellent additions. I don’t measure these when I add them, so just go with the trial and error method until you discover the perfect measurements. Other herbs, spices, or cheese would definitely change the taste; the experimenting options are endless!
Almost every time I make these biscuits, I double the recipe and freeze the leftovers. When I use the leftover biscuits, I remove them from the freezer to defrost and then put them in the toaster oven to heat them up and make them lightly toasted – they taste like they are fresh out of the oven.
