Cheddar Old Bay Biscuits

Old Bay feel good food…

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 feel good with Chesapeake Bay spice, raising the bar for every other Bisquick biscuit recipe on the planet.

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 – but hey this is PepperScale. Heat is our thing. Enjoy these biscuits with barbecue – they’re a great match to bold sauces and grilled meats.
