Savoury Cheddar Onion Biscuits

Biscuits are a family favourite, especially around holidays! There are plenty of biscuit recipes out there that claim they are the best, but I must say this is my go-to recipe when I need some homemade biscuits in my life!

These savoury cheddar onion biscuits are delicious and a nice change to the more traditional cheddar biscuits, I use finely chopped or minced raw yellow onions and fresh garlic. The raw onions and garlic add a nice flavour and aroma to the biscuits. I have made them using sautéed onions before, as some people don’t like the punch that raw onions give, however I found the onions turned soggy once they were baked. Either way they tasted great!


  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


  • Preheat oven to 450F
  • In a large bowl sift together flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbles.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture, add milk and mix well.
  • Stir in onions and cheese.*
  • drop batter by the spoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile, mix melted butter and minced garlic.
  • Brush garlic butter over hot biscuits and serve!

*I make mine with raw onions chopped finely or minced, I have made the biscuits with sautéed onions before but they become a little soft for my families liking. Either way, raw or sautéed, they turn out delicious!!
