These scrumptious and festive biscuits from Farihah of Spices Bites are just the thing to mix up your Thanksgiving table.

White Cheddar Herb Blue Cornmeal Biscuits
Substituting olive oil for butter and Greek yogurt in place of milk puts a healthy spin on these biscuits, which feature Bob’s Red Mill Blue Cornmeal. Finely shredded white cheddar and fresh sage and rosemary pump up the flavor to make these biscuits the perfect Thanksgiving side dish.
Makes 8 biscuits
- 3/4 cup White Flour
- 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Blue Cornmeal
- 1-1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Sugar
- 1 oz White Cheddar, finely shredded
- 1 tsp fresh Sage, finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp fresh Rosemary, finely chopped
- 1- 5.3-oz container Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
- 4 Tbsp Olive Oil
1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or baking mat.
2. Using a fork, combine flour, blue cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
3. Add shredded cheese and herbs, making sure to incorporate into the flour mixture.
4. Take the container of Greek yogurt and carefully add the olive oil directly into it. Carefully stir to combine the oil and yogurt, then add to the flour mixture. Mix together until you have a sticky dough. At this point you may need to use your hands to combine everything together.
5. Using your hands, divide dough into fourths. Now divide each fourth into half, so you end up with 8 portions of dough. You can either drop the dough as is onto the baking sheet or gently form a “biscuit” shape and then place on baking sheet.
6. Bake biscuits for 11-13 minutes. You should be able to smell the herbs. Then try not to burn your fingers and mouth eating a biscuit fresh from the oven.
