peppery greek yogurt cheddar biscuits


Almost Thanksgiving, you guys! But can I plead with you to still take a look at these biscuits and at least think about adding them to your menu?! Let me present my case:

  • They're made with nonfat Greek yogurt (no butter!), so you can totally justify them as a healthy option at the Thanksgiving table. More room for pie.
  • They're only SIX ingredients, including salt & pepper! Easy recipes on Thanksgiving are lifesavers.
  • They are out of this world delicious. Fluffy, cheesy, peppery, tangy, A-MAZING. These belong with you.
So have I convinced you yet? Here's the recipe, if so...

Peppery Greek Yogurt Cheddar Biscuits
yields 8-10 biscuits

you'll need:
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups plain nonfat Greek yogurt
3/4 cups shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten, for brushing

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Mix flour, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Create a well in the center and add the yogurt. Stir until just incorporated. Add cheese and stir briefly.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat dough to about 1-inch thick. Cut biscuits using a floured biscuit cutter or knife. Combine dough scraps and roll out again to make remaining biscuits.

Place on baking sheet and brush the tops with egg wash. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the tops are light golden brown. Serve warm!



Enjoy, sweet friends, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! xo

  5. Great one - easy and with yogurt instead of butter, wow! I know these must be awesome...my only problem would be finding self rising flour here. I made some buttermilk biscuits a few days ago and they're in the freezer ready to go. Have to settle for that but I'll have to remember this recipe next time.

    1. I order self-rising flour from King Arthur so that I have it around and don't have to go looking for it! That said, I've seen it at bigger grocery stores in my area as well. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving, Monica!
