Cheesy Rosemary Drop Biscuits

Don't you just love culinary karma. You know, when you stumble upon a delicious recipe and just so happen to have practically everything in your kitchen already. You might even be struck with a great idea on how to jazz up said recipe. This is culinary karma. For the record I also believe in shopping karma - where you put the beautiful, but pricey dress back on the rack and return a week later to see if they still have your size. If so, well, that little number was just meant to be yours. 

Back to the point though, I had a bout of culinary karma the other day when I came across some yummy little biscuits on Everybody Like Sandwiches. I was debating what to have for dinner and had a hankering for some eggs. Since we were also leaving for Toronto for a week (which is where we still are), we had barely anything left in the fridge. When I saw these it was like all the moving pieces came together. Poached eggs over cheesy biscuits - perfect easy dinner. I changed the recipe up a bit to fit what I had on hand, and loved the end result. I think you could really play around with these to find the flavor combination that works for you. 

I will for sure be making these again. They have that perfect squishy, biscuity (I can make up words when it's my blog, right?) texture, and are loaded with flavor. Plus they are as easy to make as cookies. Just mix and scoop. And be sure to grab the parchment paper instead of wax paper though...oops! ;)

Love your culinary karma. It's so true! These biscuits remind me of the ones from Red Lobster (though I haven't eaten at one since my kid was younger). They look simple and very tasty. I'll have to whip some up for my "Big Kid" who loves this kind of treat.

yep, it's most fortunate that you had everything you needed for these delightful little mounds of cheesy goodness. although i've yet to taste a cheese biscuit equivalent in tastiness to the red lobster version, i suspect these would come close. :)

I love drop biscuits- It's all the yumminess of a biscuit without the work of rolling them out and cutting them.
In fact... we're having omlettes for dinner tonight. I may have to make these!

Jamie said...

I love recipes like this, and serving them simply with eggs sounds perfect.

I do believe in both culinary and shopping karma (I have that same idea about shopping: if it is still there a week later, it was meant to be mine!).

Pumpkin said...

I made these last night! Very good, and super easy. Thanks for passing on the recipe!

Lori Lynn said...

They look mighty tasty. Especially as a little sandwich with an egg.

Clever bit on karma :)
