Old Amsterdam Gourmet Biscuits

March 29, 2010

As many of you know The Lady grew up in The South and that’s where her culinary heart lives and breathes.

The Man was rummaging around in the kitchen cabinets this morning when The Lady announced she planned to make some biscuits for breakfast. The Man swooned and asked “How long before they are ready?” (Code for: hope you are planning to do this soon because I am hungry.)

The Lady loves biscuits with most everything and anything. She decided to add some cheese and still had part of the Old Amsterdam Aged Gouda wedge in the fridge and decided that would be a winner.

She is a Southern at heart, but The Lady is no snob and finds that Bisquick® works as well as the way her grandmother Lilly taught her as a young child.

Here’s what she did:

Preheat oven to 450°.


2 ¼ cups of Bisquick

1 cup grated Old Amsterdam

1 Chicken Bouillon cube crushed

2/3 cup 1% milk


Grate the cheese and place in mixing bowl.

Add Bisquick and bouillon. Mix well.

Add milk and stir until thoroughly wet and mixed.

Form biscuits and place in oiled baking pan.

Cook until brown – about 10 minutes.

Serve with butter and Dalmatian Fig Spread.

Make 8 biscuits.

Two additions: these biscuits were “to-die-for” good and did you know that The Lady was the 1968 “Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tommorow” at her high school? Explains a lot, doesn’t it?

    Did you know that I won the DAR award in 1962 for Homemaking at my high school?
