Cheddar Old Bay Biscuits

We are suckers for Bisquick biscuits. They are so easy to make, no matter what the recipe, and so homey good. But, of course, any food – no matter how delicious it already is – is just made better with a dash (or three) of Old Bay seasoning. These cheddar Old Bay biscuits match that Bisquick biscuits “feel good” with the popular Chesapeake Bay spice. The result? A bold and savory biscuit, with just enough simmering heat to keep you coming back for more.

We add a little extra spiciness through a pinch of cayenne powder in the Bisquick mix prior to baking. Of course, that’s optional – Old Bay already has a little simmering spiciness built in. Enjoy these biscuits with barbecue – they’re a splendid match with bold sauces and grilled meats.
