White Cheddar and Sage Biscuits

ncSirKensington1nmI recently had the chance to sample some complimentary products from Sir Kensington’s. They sent me a wonderful package of their all natural gourmet Classic Mayonnaise, Chipotle Mayonnaise, Ketchup and Spiced Ketchup.

Sir Kensington’s makes quality non-GMO condiments–their ketchup is made with crushed tomatoes, raw sugar, and a great blend of vinegar and spices that give it a very rich tomato taste (and with a lot less sugar and sodium than other brands). I love their spiced ketchup, too, which is flavored with chipotle peppers, cilantro, lime juice, and coriander.

The Classic Mayonnaise is wonderful–very smooth, rich and creamy. And I like that it’s made with cage-free eggs and has 33% less saturated fat than other mayos. If you like mayonnaise with some spice, their Chipotle Mayonnaise makes a perfect sandwich spread or veggie dip, flavored with chipotle peppers, cumin, garlic, and tomato–such a great blend of spicy flavors!

ncSirKensMayo3nmI also received some recipes from Sir Kensington’s and I just had to try their White Cheddar and Sage Biscuits, because I am such a cheese-lover! I was also curious to try this recipe because the biscuits have mayonnaise in them and I have never made biscuits that way before! I did change their original recipe slightly because it called for self-rising flour, and I substituted flour, baking powder, and salt instead. And the original recipe suggests baking the biscuits in a cast iron skillet, but my smaller iron skillet would not hold all the biscuits, so I baked them on a parchment-lined baking sheet instead.

I thought these biscuits were really good! The mayonnaise gives them a great texture and rich flavor. And of course I love the cheese in these, too! The fresh sage makes a great savory combination with the cheese. If you are a biscuit-lover, then you will need to try these out–they’d be great with some eggs for breakfast or with some soup or chili for lunch or dinner!

WHITE CHEDDAR AND SAGE BISCUITS (adapted from Sir Kensington’s)

Makes 11 to 12 biscuits

  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil (I used non-GMO canola oil instead)
  • 3 tablespoons Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh sage, finely chopped
  • 2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • parchment paper, for lining baking sheet

Preheat oven to 425˚F. Line a 10 x 15″ baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the buttermilk, oil, and mayonnaise.

In a separate bowl, mix together the white cheddar, chopped fresh sage, flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and mix until all ingredients are combined.

Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. If dough is sticky, knead in a little extra flour. Pat the dough out to about a 1/2-inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter to cut dough into round pieces. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet and allow biscuits to rest on the sheet for 10 minutes before putting into the oven.

Bake in a preheated 425˚F oven (220˚C) until lightly browned, about 16 to 18 minutes. Remove from pan and serve.

Some of the stores that carry Sir Kensington’s products include Sur la table, Safeway, Whole Foods, and Wegmans. It’s a great brand to try if you feel like treating yourself to gourmet mayonnaise and ketchup! Have you ever tried this brand before?

    It is so nice to see more and more companies coming out with non-GMO stuff not loaded with fillers, preservatives, MSG, etc. I hadn’t heard about this company before. These biscuits look awesome, Nancy, just like all your recipes. I love cooking with fresh sage. Thanks for sharing. Uh, can you airmail me one here in the Lone Star State??? 🙂
