Green Onion Biscuits

I asked the cooking board that I frequent if they had any recipes for leftover buttermilk and one of the girls sent me to her blog. I also had some green onions to use up so it was nice not to have to waste any ingredients. Although I do still have some buttermilk left. I've read that you can freeze it so I think I might try that. I served these with beef stew made in the crock pot. (see tag under stew for recipe)

Green Onion Biscuits
Adapted from Light and Tasty, as seen on Savory Spicy Sweet

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
softened butter (just a few tablespoons)
1/4-1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar (optional)


In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Combine the buttermilk, onions and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Lightly spread a small amount of softened butter on the top of each biscuit Sprinkle with a little cheddar cheese. Bake at 400° for 14-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
