Christmas Dinner 2010

As I posted in my Christmas Dinner menu planning post 
a couple of weeks ago, we had.....

Tenderloin Steak Medallions

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

Hearts of Romaine Salad with Parmesan and Blue 
Cheese dressing with croutons


............for our Christmas dinner and if I do say so myself,
 it was awesome!  ;)

If you haven't made Garlic Cheddar biscuits, 
you have been missing something!
These biscuits are to die for!  They are one 
version of the ones they make at Red Lobster.  
You know we love them because we go to Red 
Lobster EVERY Christmas Eve and then make 
our own similar homemade biscuits the very next 

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

2 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix
4 tablespoons cold butter
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
3/4 cup cold whole milk
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1 pinch salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine Bisquick and cold butter.  Don't over mix, there should be small chunks of butter about the size of peas.

Add cheddar, milk and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder,

Mix by hand until combined, but don't over mix.

Drop 9 equal portions onto a greased baking sheet.

Bake for 15-17 minutes or until tops are light brown.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a bowl and stir in 1/2 
teaspoon garlic powder and parsley flakes.

Use a pastry brush to spread garlic butter over tops of biscuits.

There is no better way to top off a holiday meal 
than with a slice of Tessa Kiros' carrot cake with 
a nice hot cup of coffee. 

I hope all of you had a very happy and yummy
