This week’s Diabetic Side Dish of the Week is Cheddar and Onion Drop Biscuits. To make this week’s recipe you’ll be needing Better Baking Mix – click for recipe (https://www.diabetesselfmanagement.com/recipes/breakfast/better-baking-mix/), Fat Free Margarine, Low Fat Buttermilk, Shredded Reduced-Fat Cheddar Cheese, and Green Onions.

Cheddar and Onion Drop Biscuits
Who doesn’t love warm biscuits with dinner? When you’re craving bread with dinner, whip up a batch of these scrumptious homemade biscuits. These buttery drops of heaven contain only five ingredients and come together in a snap.

Ingredients
3 3/4 cups Diabetic Side Dish of the Week – Cheddar and Onion Drop Biscuits (click here for recipe)
1/4 cup trans-fat-free margarine or butter and canola oil blend* or canola oil
1 1/4 cups cold fat-free (skim) milk, low-fat buttermilk or soy milk
1/4 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese or soy cheese
1/4 cup sliced green onions

Directions
Yield: 12 biscuits
Serving size: 1 biscuit

1 – Preheat oven to 400°F.

2 – Place baking mix in large mixing bowl. Cut in margarine, butter blend, or oil with pastry cutter or two knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Make a well in center of mixture and add milk. Gently and lightly stir together just until moistened. Do not overmix. Gently fold in cheese and onion with rubber spatula.

3 – Using 1/4-cup measure, scoop 12 pieces of dough onto baking sheet, placing 1 inch apart. (Dipping the cup or scoop in water between scoops helps the batter release easier onto the baking sheet.)

4 – Bake 10 to 12 minutes, rotating pan once during baking, or until biscuits are golden brown. Remove to wire rack; serve warm.

*Butter and canola oil blends are available in the refrigerated dairy sections of supermarket. You can easily make your own by combining equal parts room-temperature butter and canola oil in the bowl of a food processor. Pack the mixture into a plastic tub with a lid and refrigerate.
