If you’re the same way, you’ll fall instantly in love with these small batch cheddar biscuits. They’re crisp around the edges while being soft and cheesy inside. The flavor is spot on and so is the texture.

They make great breakfast sandwiches or side to traditional eggs, bacon, sausage, and skillet potatoes.

For the best breakfast sandwich I like to layer them with scrambled eggs, bacon, and fig preserves. It’s so good. This breakfast sandwich also makes a popular tailgate breakfast!

Small Batch Cheddar Biscuits Method

The method for making biscuits with cheese in them is the same as for making other biscuits.

  1. First sprinkle the sugar in the flour and give it a good toss.
  2. Next, cut the fat into the flour. The fat in this recipe is butter.
  3. Once you’got that combined. (It should have small pea-sized clumbs of butter & flour.) Add the shredded cheese and give it a toss.
  4. Finally, pour in the buttermilk and combine. Be careful and don’t overwork the dough. Not-overworking the dough is the key to a tender biscuit.


If you don’t have self rising flour, use 2 cups all-purpose flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon kosher salt
