When you’re a vegetarian at Thanksgiving, it’s really all about the sides and the bread. Sometimes they are one in the same, like with my mom’s ridiculously buttery and carbalicious stuffing. My plate usually fills up with that stuffing, green bean and artichoke casserole, and a big buttered roll. Carbs beside buttery cheesy vegetables beside carbs.
This year I’m going to hopefully add a little healthy goodness with a lentil loaf, which I’m already being made fun of incessantly for because “lentil loaf” sounds about as appealing as “nutritional yeast,” but I’m giving it a try anyway.
One thing’s for sure – I’m going to help make our Thanksgiving even carb-ier with these biscuits. Oh me oh my these biscuits. They’re buttery, flaky, savory, rich, and daaaaang good when warm and slathered with butter.
I already brought them to my weekly family dinner last night, and received rave reviews. It’s not always easy to please those people, so when they approve I know I’ve got a winner.
These biscuits start with a mix of unbleached all purpose flour (for fluffiness) and whole wheat flour (for hearty healthiness), salt, pepper, hella lot of baking powder, and cold butter. Once that’s all incorporated, we fold in the flavor powerhouses of these biscuits: fresh sage and gouda cheese. After adding some homemade buttermilk, we roll out the dough, cut them biscuits up, brush with a little more milk, and cover with the rest of the cheese. They bake up high and golden and bubbly with melted gouda, and then they are devoured within minutes.
I’m thankful for carbs.
Fluffy, buttery and flavorful biscuits made with gouda and sage. Easy, quick, and perfect for special occasions.

You can replace the milk and apple cider vinegar with 1 cup buttermilk. I find that when I buy a carton of buttermilk it ends up sitting in my fridge unused, so I make my own.
