Cheddar Sage Biscuits

Jump to Recipe

We always serve my dad’s famous Potato Rolls at our Thanksgiving feast. We usually make a batch of plain potato rolls and Rosemary Potato Rolls. This year we will stick with tradition and enjoy potato rolls, but we might make a batch of Cheddar Sage Biscuits as well. Who’s counting carbs on Thanksgiving? Not us! We made these biscuits for a “pre-Thanksgviing” celebration with friends and they were a big hit.

If you are afraid of yeast, this biscuit recipe is perfect for you. I know the kitchen can get a little crazy on Thanksgiving, but you won’t need to worry about these drop biscuits. They are super easy to make, only take about 15 minutes to bake, and won’t hog your oven space.

The biscuits are filled with cheddar cheese and fresh sage-one of my favorite Thanksgiving herbs. We used Kerrygold’s Reduced Fat Aged Cheddar and loved the outcome! If you can’t find Kerrygold, feel free to use your favorite cheddar cheese. We brushed the tops of the biscuits with melted butter before baking to help them brown and because you can never have too much butter:)

Add these Cheddar Sage Biscuits to your Thanksgiving menu. I promise they are simple to make and will fit in nicely with all of your holiday fixings. You really can’t go wrong with buttery, cheese loaded biscuits:)

  1. I made these for Thanksgiving and they were wonderful. I dare say that if you swapped the sage for bay seasoning and added garlic to the butter before brushing on, they would taste like Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits!

  2. Hi Maria — I know this post is from 2011 but hoping you see this. We live in CO — since you’re also at altitude, do you make any adjustments to this recipe to account for that? These will be yummy at our Thanksgiving table! 🙂

  3. I made these for my house warming party this past weekend and they went faster than anything else, and I made really good duck with them!
