I’ll often crave crispy warm bread. Know that feeling? Sometimes I think I’m a carb junkie, other times I know for sure. Bread is just so full of flavor and versatile—especially when you toss little knobs of butter on top until they melt all over the warm and crispy bread. Yum.
Unfortunately I don’t always have time to make bread dough, let it rise (twice) and then bake it. So I invented this baby. It takes you 45 minutes from start to end, tops. I promise you, it’ll satisfy each and every one of your cravings and then some.
It’s more of a mix between bread and biscuit but, oh boy, it’s so tasty and fluffy, you’ll love it! Chances are you won’t even have to leave your house and can whip up this beauty using ingredients you already have in your pantry. Wouldn’t that be nice?
2 cups flour
2 oz butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
4 oz aged cheese
2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried (red) onion flakes
1 tsp chili flakes
1/2 cup milk + 2 tbsp
I’d just spent 1 1/2 hours on a fricken cold playground and felt I deserved a soul satisfying treat! Kid had an absolute blast. I was mainly cold, therefore I earned it. Sounds plausible? It worked for me!
My new gadget. I love gadgets. Picked up a dirt-cheap flour sifter at IKEA and really like it so far. It looks so 2004—the kind of 2004 I imagined 2004 to be back when it was still 1985, you know? Alas, my car is still not flying and I just don’t look good in a tight, sparkly silver space outfit.
My latest addiction: dried red onions. They’re soft, crunchy, sweet and mildly spicy. I use them in salad dressings, spice rubs, and now in biscuits. Love ‘em. Add 2 tsp of it. Or more. You can always add more onion.
Bake in a preheated oven at 400F (200C) for 30 minutes.
I can’t help it, I just really like bread. Topped with little dollops of butter that melt all over it. Give me a big bowl of homemade potato soup as well, and I’m all yours. Figuratively speaking, of course (unless you’re George Clooney).

|Cheese & Onion Biscuit Bread|

This was probably the best lunch I’ve made in some time. We combined it with a big bowl of my favorite Sweet potato and pepper soup and it was awesome. I’m not very creative when it comes to special lunch recipes—too attached to my basic cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and cucumber sandwich, I guess—but this was something else alright. Think of it as a pizza variation, only way more fulfilling…
