Cheddar & Leek Biscuits

I promised Paul bacon & eggs for breakfast. But I wanted to make something a bit more interesting...

So I adapted Kat & Matt's Buttermilk Biscuits with Cheddar & Green Onions. Some of the adaptations being that I didn't have any buttermilk or green onions!

Cheddar & Leek Biscuits

1 baby leek, finely chopped
1/4 cup grated strong cheddar
2/3 cup wholemeal flour
1tsp baking powder
2tbs butter
1/4 cup low fat Greek yoghurt

Combine the leek, cheddar, flour and baking powder in a bowl. Rub in the butter until it forms coarse crumbs, then bind with the yoghurt, mixing very lightly.

Form into 2-4 square-ish biscuits and bake at 220C for 15 minutes.

Serve with hot soup for lunch, or split with bacon, eggs and fried tomatoes for breakfast.

I never thought to add leeks to a biscuit, but I bet that tastes great.

Love cheddar biscuits! I am sure the leeks gave it a good bite.

Cheddar & leek? this begs for soup...really good soup. Any kind of really good soup. This is crying out for soup!

Love it!

The biscuits look yummy. Love the additions. And fondue! Blast from the past. Great idea to serve it on the side.

Cheddar and leek biscuits???? Wow.

These sound good on their own but with bacon and eggs, Wow!

I just love fresh biscuits, cheddar and leek are an awesome combination!

Kat - thanks! Your biscuits were inspiring

Rachel - the leek was very finely diced, and were quite onion-y.

Esi - they did!

Darius - yup. If it hadn't been breakfast I would have made soup.

Thanks Laurie! My grandmother was Swiss, so fondue was a constant, not a 70s thing.

MrOrph - I am so glad I have discovered the biscuit! Tasty stuff.

Sam - yup, the bacon and eggs really made them!

Natashya - I can't believe I was 35 before I had a biscuit! So good!

Those look really great. I should find the time to make them over our holiday weekend. They must be totally delicious.

Ooooh, these might make a nice savoury breakfast (I am stuck in porridge with banana rut).

Oh, how I love a good breakfast biscuit. These look way better than those ones they give you at Red Lobster.
