Lydia's spin on Garlic Cheddar Drop Biscuits!

(Don't they look yummy! You get a bonus point if you can find the "Zombie Face" in one of the biscuits!)

I saw a link to this recipe on Pinterest recently, and had to attempt it! I am oh so glad I did! 
Since I never follow recipes exactly, I decided to put my own spin on it and change it up a bit. 

To start with, I made mine in a cast iron skillet (drop biscuit style). If you've never made biscuits in a cast iron skillet before, well you're missing out! Give it a try!

*Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
*Lightly mist medium-large sized cast iron skillet with Canola Oil Spray/Pam

1 1/2 cups Bisquik (I use the "Healthy Heart" one, but you could use anything really)
2 cups milk
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 stick of butter (melted)
1/2 tsp Black Peppercorn
1/2 TBSP Garlic Salt
1/2 tsp Basil
1/2tsp Tony Chechere's Origional Cajun Seasoning

*Mix together Bisquik, milk, and cheese. Use a large tablespoon or ice cream scoop to scoop the dough with and place in cast iron skillet. Try to keep them in a bit of a round shape (It's ok if they touch).

*Bake at 400 degrees for 7 minutes 

*While biscuits are baking, mix together melted butter and seasonings.

*Change oven temperature to 350 degrees

*Carefully pull out biscuits and baste with butter mixture. Place them back in the oven (don't forget to lower the temperature to 350 degrees). 

*Bake biscuits for another 5-8 minutes depending on the thickness of them (you'll need to keep an eye on them).

*Once biscuits look done, place the oven on Broil and allow the biscuits to broil for about 1 minute under supervision. Once they look golden brown, pull the skillet out and allow them to cool for about 5 minutes. 
(Use your leftover butter mixture to baste the top of the biscuits while they cool.)

Enjoy, my lovelies! 

Ingredient side note: I think these biscuits would taste delicious with corn, sausage, ham, or even chopped up bacon in them!
