I have a growing teenage boy in my house who’s appetite rivals that of most football players. Dinners must include large quantities of carbs in order to fill him up. Oh, sure, there is meat, veggies, milk and all those other food groups, too. However what really sticks to the ribs and gets him to say ‘I’m full’ is the carbohydrates. Most dinners I make include rolls, bread, or biscuits of some sort. Many years ago I found a recipe for garlic cheese biscuits on the Bisquick box and have been playing around with it ever since. It is a huge favorite in my house. You can probably use any packaged biscuit mix for this recipe or even make your own. I was feeling lazy last night and grabbed the box of Bisquick so that is the recipe I will share. I make these pretty big but you could make them smaller and adjust the cooking time without much trouble. Just bake til the biscuits are turning golden and they spring back when touched gently. Check out the Bisquick recipes on their website for more ideas.
