Easy Cheese and Chive Drop Biscuits

These easy cheese and chive drop biscuits are great with breakfast or dinner, or just as a snack. If you want a more simple biscuit, just omit the cheese and chives.


I dream of being the person that rolls out flaky biscuits and has them in the oven in time for breakfast. But really, that’s just not who I am. All that rolling and rolling, by the time the biscuits are ready I already ate something else. That’s why I love drop biscuits. They taste fantastic and are so versatile. And the best part is: no rolling.

Key Techniques for Easy Cheese and Chive Drop Biscuits

  • Drop biscuits come together much easier than rolled & cut biscuits. The baking powder gives these a light and fluffy aspect with very little work.
  • Cheese and chives add great flavor but feel free to play around with it. This is a great biscuit base and you can have the simple biscuit as is, or add your favorite additions.
