Moist, flaky, buttery and salty. These biscuits will make you happy, happy, happy! I like to serve these biscuits with fried chicken, but they make great sandwich bread for anything from a fried egg sandwich to a pastrami sandwich.
Buttermilk Monterey Biscuits
Moist, flaky, buttery and salty. These biscuits will make you happy, happy, happy!
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place 2 cups of flour, the baking powder, and salt in a bowl and cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until the butter is the size of peas.
Combine the buttermilk and egg in a small measuring cup and beat lightly with a fork. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and mix only until moistened. Fold the cheese and jalapeno pepper into the dough. Mix only until roughly combined. Dump out onto a well-floured board and knead lightly about 6 times. Roll the dough out to about an inch thick. With a 3 to 4 inch round cookie cutter, cut the dough. Transfer to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with the egg wash, sprinkle with salt.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tops are browned and the biscuits are cooked through. Serve hot or warm.
Add crumbled bacon to dough for a smoky flavor. Biscuits can be used with fried chicken, for breakfast with sausage gravy, or you can make great sandwiches with them by filling them with your favorite lunch meat. © Galley Chef All Rights Reserved
