Better than Jim 'N Nick's Cheesy Biscuits


This is our new favorite cheesy biscuit recipe - it is SOOO good.  I am just going to say it - these just might be better than Jim 'N Nick's famous cheesy biscuits (which I could eat at least a dozen of all by myself). We loved these. The best part - they are incredibly easy to make!  They are even good reheated.  We ate them with dinner the next night too.  Just slap some honey butter on these puppies and go to town!



Better than Jim 'N Nick's Cheesy Biscuits
1 1/2 cups Bisquick
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 Tbps sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 425.  Stir together all ingredients just until combined.  Scoop into a mini muffin pan coated with cooking spray.  Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden.  **I used a medium cookie scoop and got 20 muffins**

  6. As we call them (from another restaurant) the "biscuits with the cheese all up in 'em!" I must try these - they look fabulous :)

  7. I didn't get any cheese flavor. I think I'd just leave the cheese out and save the money and calories. These would make a great breakfast biscuit.

  10. I will have to try these. I always make the ones on Pioneer Woman's site, and they are DELICIOUS, but they require 3 cups of cheese, which can get pricey. Thanks for the recipe!

  11. This recipe is unbelievable. i followed the directions to the T and slapped some honey and butter on them. The vivid photos made me want to make a batch. I will be making them throughout the holiday season along with many other things I'm sure. It is great to save as much as possible when you shop. I found some great usable coupons on there and saved more than change to say the least. Take a look before you shop next.

  14. I can't wait to try these!! When I saw the name, I knew you had to be from around Bham. I went to college there and miss it very much. I absolutely love Jim n Nicks biscuits (I call them cupcakes) Thanks for this recipe!

  15. I tried these today and I find them too sweet. I think I will omit the sugar and give these another try.

  16. Everyone in my family loved these. Quick to make, clean and eat!!!

  17. Thank you, our dinner was cooked but just stumbled upon this and happened to have some buttermilk so whipped up a batch and they are in the oven now!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. What's a good substitute for buttermilk if none on hand?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Catzmum - 4 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar, or fresh lemon juice and 1 cup milk

    You can also just use milk.

  20. I put this on my menu for this week, I can't wait to try them out! I linked to your blog, hoping you don't mind.

  21. Does this need the vanilla? I'm not much of a baker so I don't have this handy. Looks yummy though!

    1. Kristin - the biscuits I was copying are slightly sweet. You can leave the vanilla out and they will be ok. They will just taste slightly different, but not bad.

  22. These were made exactly as written and they are awesome. Wouldn't change a thing. I served with honey butter as suggested. Yum!

  23. I noticed that some are posting that these biscuits are sweet. If they are anything remotely like Jim n Nick's, you made them exactly right! We love Jim n Nick's but only enjoy the biscuits while they are super warm because the longer they sit, the sweeter they get! Thanks for the recipe!!

  24. I saw this recipe on Pinterest this morning and had to try them. I made them just as the recipe says and had them with bacon. Just the perfect amount of sweetness! Yummy! Thanks for the recipe :)

  25. I'm not much of a baker so can I use bisquick complete or does it have to be the original?

    ReplyDelete
  26. jaclyn - I haven't tried the bisquick complete yet, but I think it would be fine to swap it for the regular bisquick

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thank you for the recipe! I'm planning on making this! But I was wondering is vanilla, vanilla extract?
    & If it is not, would it be ok if I used vanilla extract?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Does the use of sharp cheddar throw off the flavor? I used sharp cheddar, and felt that the biscuits weren't sweet enough.

  29. I'm not a big fan of the sweetness but they were good my family LOVED THEM. Thanks!! ;-)

  32. My kids beg to go to Jim N Nicks every night. They won't eat anything, but the biscuits, so I thought I'd give these a try. Dinner's not quite ready yet and they've each had one. They can't wait to sit down at the table to have more. Thanks!

  33. I didn't taste any of the cheese... and the bisquick made them taste like pancakes. I have to put syrup on them just to make myself eat them. I found the actual recipe for jim n' nick's biscuits. Jim N' Nick's wins by far. These were a waste of resources. Gross.

    1. So where is the actual recipe for Jim n Nick's biscuits

  34. I don't add sugar.I brush them with melted butter and garlic powder after I take them out of the oven.

  35. I love Jim N nicks biscuits, so I am looking forward to trying these! Going to make them for Thanksgiving... assuming they will last that long! Thank you!!

  36. These look absolutely heavenly. I'd eat them all!

  37. Made these today. Turned out great. Grand Kids and everyone loved them. All gone!! Next time, I'm going to add some ham.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am wondering if adding garlic powder into these would make them taste even better. That would really remind me of the Red Lobster biscuits then.

    ReplyDelete

  39. Cheesy, sweet, delicate and WONDERFUL.
    Love these and will make again and again.
    Just wish I hadn't eaten so many.

  40. Hi! I'm azlin from Malaysia. Don't think we have Bisquick here. What can I use as a substitute?. I do sure wanna try making this.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Add a tsp. of garlic powder and you've got garlic biscuits. Awesome!

  42. @azlin: If Bisquick is not available where you live in Malaysia, here is a great old-fashioned Cheese Biscuit recipe that is very tasty:

    Cheddar Cheese Biscuits Recipe

    Yield: 12 large biscuits or 18 small ones

    2 cups/250g all-purpose flour (unbleached or regular)
    3 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    1/3 cup/75g butter, cold, cut into chunks
    2 Tbsp. canola or any flavourless, odourless vegetable oil
    1 heaping cup/ 6-7 oz. /150-170g grated cheddar cheese (sharp flavoured is best)
    1/2 – 2/3 cup or 120-160 ml milk

    For brushing on top after baking:
    3 Tbsp. butter
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes or 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped

    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and garlic powder.
    Add the cubed butter. Using a pastry cutter or 2 knives or even a fork, cut butter into flour until it is coarse, pea-sized (doesn’t need to be fine).
    Add oil, grated cheddar cheese and the milk. Stir till well combined and holds together.
    Make sure to keep adding milk a bit at a time, just until the dough is moistened and you can no longer see any raw flour.
    Drop approximately 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.
    Bake for 15-17 minutes in a preheated oven at 400F/.
    While biscuits are baking, melt 3 tablespoons butter is a small bowl with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the parsley & mix well.
    When biscuits come out of the oven, use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Do this a few times – it’s fun to watch all the butter getting absorbed into the biscuit! Use up all of the butter. Serve warm for best flavour.

  43. Oh my I didn't realize so many people actually eat at Red Lobster!! But Jim n Nick's cheese biscuits are awesome! Ate there yesterday, just enough sweetness that I don't feel like I'm eating a bunch of bread before the pulled pork sandwich comes!! They sell their mix in the restaurant but may try this recipe just for fun. The ingredient list is not expensive by any means!

    1. Yes, just increase the baking time about 5 minutes or so.

  46. I tried this recipe because it looked quick and easy, it was the biggest mistake! This recipe was disgusting, the taste of vanilla did not mix well with the rest of the ingredients.

  47. Shouldn't this recipe include an egg?
