Sunday Morning Cheese Biscuits

I almost never photograph the food I prepare because I make such a mess in the kitchen. I was inspired to make cheese biscuits to go along with my fried egg this morning in order to test my "new" toaster oven. Well, it's not really new but you'd never guess it's not fresh out of the box. The firemen had their annual auction and tent sale yesterday and I had such fun looking at other people's junk. I got my Cuisinart Classic Toaster Oven for $14.00 and I am thrilled with it. It seemed such a shame to fire up the stove oven for only 6 biscuits as I have been doing ever since I made my first batch of homemade Bisquick Mix. This is my 4th pan of delicious oven-baked goodness with the addition of grated cheddar cheese. I was going to make grits this morning too but didn't have time . . . everything went together so quickly.

I used unsalted butter for the mix but next time I am going to use salted. It was all I had in the fridge at the time. I might use only half the sugar or eliminate it altogether. Southerners never put sugar in biscuits; I think that is a Yankee thing. You really can't taste any sweetness and maybe it helps with the rising. We'll see. Anyway, I am set for the day after a delicious breakfast. I have to host a Realtor open house this afternoon so I'd better start getting ready. See you later.

Here is my newest kitchen friend. You know you have too much stuff when you have to spend hours rearranging in order to fit one more thing in your house.

Wow Rosemary, what a great bargain find! Our toaster blew up yesterday with all the associated smoke & flames & a power board shut down. I noticed Magimix has a new trendy see-through toaster, but at $450 I think I'll be looking for something less salubrious.
