Gluten Free Living – 2016
Oh my goodness, these Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits were heavenly! They were so good I wanted to eat ALL of them! These Cheddar Bay Biscuits use an Artisan blend gluten free flour, and more wholesome ingredients than the original recipe. But they still have that dynamite taste of cheddar cheese, garlic powder and parsley that give the biscuits their distinctive flavor. Honestly, if you didn’t know you were eating gluten free biscuits, you’d never know because the taste and texture is sooooo wonderful!
After baking up a batch of these jewels, I could have sat down and eaten all of them with apple butter for breakfast, lunch or dinner for the next couple of days. Thankfully, I only ate a couple of them for our Thanksgiving dinner and another one with soup the next day. Then I froze the rest and ended up giving them to friends after Thanksgiving along with a Turkey Corn Chowder and some Pumpkin Muffins because they had been sick over the holidays. This recipe turned out so well, I will probably make this version of Cheddar Bay Biscuits often in the future because they are so good.
Can I go on record and say that I would eat these biscuits every single day for every single meal all year round if I could get away with it? I absolutely L-O-V-E these biscuits. Occasionally when I make them I use one and a half times the butter sauce on top, when I want the biscuits drenched in that amazing garlicky butter sauce. They are so perfect for any kind of side, that I can’t rave about them enough. I actually enjoy these more than the original recipe with regular flour. Because that recipe uses Bisquick, I’ve experimented with the leavening ingredients trying to get these biscuits just right.
When I made our traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year, I kept it pretty simple. In addition to turkey and gravy, I made up a Squash and Carrot Casserole, Cornbread Dressing, Greek Salad and these Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I had so much leftover turkey and turkey broth that I made four additional soup recipes. Plus, I gave some of our turkey and broth away to those friends who had been sick so they could cook up some of their own meals.
If you’re looking for a fantastic Cheddar Bay Biscuit recipe and you’re interested in a gluten free version, I can’t recommend these Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits highly enough. They were awesome–especially if you’re a biscuit lover like me. They go extremely well with soup and salad. Or you can just drool over them like I did with butter and apple butter. Maybe it’s time to make up another batch….. 🙂
Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits are awesome. I found them especially delicious with butter and apple butter.
These biscuits puff up big and have an explosion of cheesy, garlicky flavor that’s wonderful.
While these biscuits are traditionally served for dinner, I loved them for breakfast or snacks with apple butter.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place Artisan blend gluten free flour in a large mixing bowl. Add salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir to combine.
Cut in cold butter with a pastry blender until coarse crumbs form. Don’t over mix.
Add cheddar cheese, half-and-half and garlic powder.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine. Stir just until moistened–don’t over mix or over handle the dough.
Spray a 10×15″ baking dish or cookie sheet with cooking spray. Scoop biscuits with a large ice cream scoop and place an inch or two apart on greased cookie sheet or baking dish.
Bake at 400 degrees about 13-15 minutes until lightly golden brown. (Mine took 20 minutes).
While biscuits are baking combine glaze: Melt butter. Add garlic powder, parsley, salt and chives. Stir to combine.
Brush butter ingredients over top of hot biscuits as soon as they come out of the oven. Coat well.
Serve Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits for dinner with your favorite meal, or for breakfast!
This uncomplicated version of Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits is a great way to get your biscuit fix without the gluten!

GLUTEN FREE CHEDDAR BAY BISCUITS
(My own concoction)
Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits were wonderful served with a bowl of Turkey Corn Chowder.
The nice thing about these biscuits is they’re a drop biscuit, so they are quite a bit quicker to make than biscuits you have to knead and shape. Just scoop the dough with an ice cream scoop and place on a cookie sheet and the biscuits are ready to go!
Here I’ve spread the biscuits with butter and apple butter. They were so incredibly scrumptious.
