Make One Get One

It's all about creating one dish and turning the leftovers into something new!

Tomorrow morning, use leftovers to make a restaurant-quality Cheddar Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich: Cut the biscuit in half, add your favorite toppings and dig in!

Get started!


1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

2 1/2 cups (300 grams) all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

4 ounces (1 cup) Land O Lakes® Sharp Cheddar Farmstyle Cut Shredded Cheese

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

2 cups buttermilk  

 *Substitute 2 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar plus enough milk to make 2 cups.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 450°F. Melt butter in 8-inch square glass baking dish in oven. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Sift together flour, baking powder, garlic powder and salt in medium bowl. Stir in cheese and chives. Add buttermilk; gently stir until no loose flour remains, being careful not to overmix. Pour mixture over melted butter in prepared baking dish; gently push to edges. Cut dough into tic-tac-toe grid with 9 portions.

  3. STEP 3

    Bake 23-25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Brush any excess butter bubbling up sides over tops of biscuits. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting through pre-scored biscuits. Serve warm.

  4. STEP 4

    Store any leftover biscuits tightly wrapped at room temperature up to 2 days.

Tip #1

Cutting the dough before baking allows the butter to surround each biscuit and helps them bake evenly.

Tip #2

Use any leftovers to build Cheddar Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches to stash in the freezer for a quick morning meal.
