Two-Ingredient Dough Cheddar Biscuits are cheesy low-carb biscuits that are free of yeast and eggs. Made from a simple base of Greek yogurt and self-rising flour, these flavorful biscuits come together in just 30 minutes. Totally hassle-free!
I am not kidding when I say these delicious Two-Ingredient Dough Cheddar Biscuits quite literally melt in your mouth. Made with sharp cheddar cheese and soft, fluffy dough, these biscuits will take you right back to your grandmother’s kitchen.
Unlike the pre-made cheddar biscuits you can order at a restaurant or buy at the store, these are not filled with tons of fat and preservatives. These are made with two-ingredient dough, making the perfect low-carb, healthier version of your favorite savory side dish.
With two-ingredient dough, there is no excessive kneading, waiting, or unnecessary frustration needed. All it takes is a bit of self-rising flour and Greek yogurt, along with seasoning and cheddar cheese, and these easy homemade biscuits are ready in less than 30 minutes.
If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect savory appetizer or side dish, you’ve found it. Two-Ingredient Dough Cheddar Biscuits are amazing on their own or paired with soups, salads, and slow-cooker recipes. You could even slice them in half and use them as sandwich rolls! When they are this easy to make, the possibilities are endless.
You can make these mouth-watering cheddar biscuits using just four key ingredients:
- Self-rising flour. Self-rising flour is the secret to making homemade dough without any yeast or additional baking soda. It’s made from a simple combination of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt, and is guaranteed to make your life a whole lot easier.
- Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt gives the dough its moisture and is chock-full of healthy protein and fiber. You could use full-fat, low-fat, or fat-free Greek yogurt here, just make sure that it is Greek! Otherwise, your dough’s consistency will be thrown off.
- Cheddar cheese. Personally, I find sharp cheddar to be the perfect cheese to bake into biscuits. However, feel free to use mild cheddar, feta, parmesan, or mozzarella cheese if preferred.
- Italian seasoning. This is an easy way to add a ton of savory flavor. You can use a store-bought bottle or make it at home with oregano, marjoram, thyme, basil, rosemary, and sage.
Cheddar Biscuit Recipe Tips
Here are some quick tips for making these delicious homemade cheddar biscuits the best they can be:
- Switch up your cheese. Not a cheddar fan? No problem! These delicious, cheesy biscuits will taste great with virtually any cheese you can think of. Some of my favorite options include feta, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese.
- Swap out the spices. If you don’t have Italian seasoning or want to try something else, feel free to use your favorite blend of spices.
- Add protein. To turn these cheddar biscuits into delicious breakfast sandwiches, try adding chopped bacon or turkey sausage into the mix.
- Make them gluten-free. For a gluten-free option, simply find a gluten-free self-rising flour or make your own from scratch with gluten-free all-purpose flour.
- Make them dairy-free. You can make these biscuits dairy-free by swapping out the Greek yogurt with a plant-based yogurt alternative. Keep in mind that this may alter the consistency of the dough.
How to Serve Homemade Cheddar Biscuits
These two-ingredient dough cheddar biscuits are the ultimate versatile dish. Not only can you serve them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, but they make a great snack to enjoy on their own as well!
- For breakfast: These biscuits make the perfect grab-and-go breakfast. However, if you’re looking for a bit more sustenance, try pairing them with sausage, bacon, or scrambled eggs.
- For lunch: These biscuits are perfect for using as sandwich buns. I love slicing them in half and filling them with turkey, chicken, or ham, along with fresh veggies and mayonnaise. Yum!
- For dinner: These cheddar biscuits are great to serve with soups or salads for a well-balanced meal. I recommend pairing them with this Slow Cooker Cheesy Cauliflower Soup or this delicious Spinach Tortellini Soup.
- On their own: These cheesy cheddar biscuits are seriously delicious on their own and make the perfect quick snack to satisfy your savory craving.
How to Store Leftover Biscuits
One of the great things about two-ingredient dough is its ability to be stored and used later. That way, you have a batch on hand to turn into a thousand and one of your favorite baked goods. To store unused two-ingredient dough, seal it in an airtight storage container and refrigerate for up to 10 days.
To store leftover cheddar biscuits, allow them to cool down and seal them in an airtight storage container or bag. Once properly contained, store them as such:
- At room temperature for up to 3 days.
- Freeze for up to 3 months.
- Reheat in a 300°F oven for about 10 minutes, or until warmed through.
Pro Tip: There is no need to refrigerate these cheddar biscuits, as the cold air will actually alter the consistency.
Frequently Asked Questions
Below you can find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about this recipe:
To make self-rising flour, take 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour and combine with 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder and ¾ teaspoons of salt. If you are looking for a whole wheat or gluten-free version, simply substitute the all-purpose flour with that of your choice.
The answer here is immediately, as they are best served warm and fresh out of the oven. However, if that just isn’t possible, you can store these biscuits at room temperature for up to 3 days. Then, just reheat them in the oven for about 10 minutes to restore them to their former glory.
These biscuits are a bit different than the Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuits but with a few adjustments, you can create the same flavors. Simply add 1/2 tbsp white sugar, 1.5 teaspoons garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper to the flour before making the dough. Leave out the Italian seasoning. Then make sure to brush the dough with a combination of melted butter and minced parsley once they come out of the oven. The Red Lobster bay Biscuits also use more cheese, so consider doubling the cheese.
Absolutely! Swap in any shredded cheese you like for the cheddar cheese. Shredded pepper jack, mozzarella, Parmesan, or gouda would all be delicious.
