Now that the cooler weather is here, I’m looking for some quick and easy ideas to serve with soups or as an appetizer. These Cheddar and Onion Biscuit Bites with Avocado are full of flavor, perfect for dunking into a cup of soup or serving with a big bowl of hot chili. Kerrygold Skellig cheddar cheese is the secret ingredient that makes all the difference in these bite size biscuits stuffed with a small wedge of fresh buttery avocado.
Sift 2 cups of flour with 1 1/2 tsp baking powder. Using a pastry cutter, cut in t tablespoons of butter. Add 1 cup grated Skellig cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup cooled sautéed onions, 2/3 cup milk and 1 tsp dried thyme. Mix with a spoon and then use your fingers to knead it just until the dough holds together.
Use a teaspoon to form a balls of dough and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees.
The biscuit bites will be golden brown when they’re done.
Creamy pieces of avocado on top of sweet cheddar and onion biscuit bites … so good, I’ve been nibbling on them as I write this post.
