Southern Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

Today, we’re diving into the heart of Southern comfort with a recipe that’ll make your taste buds sing and your grill billow with flavor. Inspired by the one and only Smokin and Grillin wit AB, we’re putting a smoky twist on the classic Southern Buttermilk Drop Biscuits.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup cold buttermilk
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray or extra melted butter for greasing

For serving:

  • Butter
  • Jam
  • Honey (optional)

Instructions

Fire Up the Grill:

Now, let’s kick things off by firing up the grill. Smokin and Grillin wit AB style demands a perfect balance of heat and finesse. Set your grill to medium heat, allowing it to reach that sweet spot where the magic happens.

Mixing It Up:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and kosher salt. This forms the foundation of our biscuit brilliance. In a separate bowl, marry the cold buttermilk with the melted butter, creating a velvety liquid love that will bind our ingredients together.

Infusing the Smoky Essence:

But we’re not done yet, this is where the Smokin and Grillin wit AB influence truly kicks in. We’re infusing our biscuits with smoky goodness. Toss in the shredded cheddar cheese, chopped green onions, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. It’s a flavor fiesta that promises to transport your taste buds straight to the heart of the South. Enjoy your Southern Buttermilk Drop Biscuits!
