Zucchine and Cheddar Biscuits

Serve these to those picky children who don't like vegetables. They won't be able to tell that there is zucchini in them at all. They may taste the onion so if your little ones hates those as well just omit it from the recipe.

Recipe Type: Breakfast


Prep work: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and grease a 12 cup muffin tin.

Cut the butter into cubes.  They are easier to incorporate into the flour when in smaller pieces.

Mince the onion.  I tend to use mostly red onion in all my dishes however you can use whatever you have on hand.

Grate the cheese.  The sharper the cheddar you use the cheesier the taste.

Grate the zucchini.  Zucchini is packed full of water to you need to squeeze out any excess moisture.  Just grab a handful of the grated stuff and squeeze.

Now let’s put it together. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.

Add the butter and with a pastry blender cut it up into the flour. Make sure you don’t leave any large pieces of butter.

Add the cheese and mix well. Make sure you don’t have large clumps of cheese. It would be good if you could guarantee that you got the biscuit with that clump however it’s not likely to happen unless you eat the whole pan yourself.

In another bowl beat together the egg and the milk.

Add the onion, zucchini and Dijon mustard. Dijon mustard has a very pungent taste but don’t be concerned if you don’t like it, the taste isn’t recognizable in the finished product.

Mix everything together well.

Add the milk mixture to your bowl of flour.

Stir just enough to make sure everything is combined, but don’t over mix.

Drop evenly into your muffin tins.

Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until tester comes out clean.

These are really good right out of the oven but you can let them cool, wrap them in foil and reheat as needed or eat them cold.
