I have a friend who hosts a Soup-Fest every year. She invites a ton of people and everyone brings a crockpot full of soup. Other people bring bread and dessert, and it is a delicious way to spend the afternoon.
It was at Soup-Fest a few years ago that I got my first introduction to beer bread and I was hooked!
I was skeptical because I don’t like beer… like at all. So I never thought I’d be a fan of beer bread, even though I’ve yet to meet a bread that I don’t like.
I was wrong though, I think I ate three pieces that day!
Fast forward a few years and here we are. One of my favorite biscuit recipes ever are these beer biscuits. They are insanely easy and so freakin good!
The really cool thing about them is that you can make the basic recipe or you can add a little to it and make different variations.
What variations can I make of these beer biscuits?
Add Cheese– Everything is better with cheese right? These biscuits are no exception. You can add in about 1/2 a cup of shredded cheddar or parmesan to add some delicious flavor to them! If you are a fan of Red Lobster’s biscuits add in some cheddar and then brush the tops with melted butter and garlic.
Add Herbs or Spices– These are really kind of a blank slate that you can add your favorite flavor too. A little garlic or onion powder, some dill or basil, whatever your favorite herb combinations are go ahead and add them to your biscuits. I’ve never tried it but I daresay these would even be tasty with a little cinnamon and nutmeg to make them a little sweet.
Use Different Kinds of Beer– I usually use the cheapest beer I can. I often steal one from our cabin after my son has been there (don’t worry he’s 22!) or get one from my step Dad. They are Coors or Bud drinkers so it’s nothing fancy. However different beers give these slightly different flavors. So if you are a fan of beer you can try your favorite and see how they turn out!
A lot of beer bread and biscuit recipes only use about a cup of beer, if you’re a beer drinker that’s good because you get to drink the other half. However if you’re like me you feel wasteful dumping the leftovers. So I tweaked the recipe to take a whole beer (12 oz can) this makes about 8 biscuits so I think it’s perfect!
