These sweet and cheesy mini biscuits are hard to stop popping in your mouth! They taste almost just like Jim N Nicks Cheesy Biscuits and they are so easy to make!
We have a Jim N Nicks BBQ Restaurant near our house and I love to go there for a meal as often as possible. I love basically everything I’ve tried- the mammoth onion rings, the pulled pork and mac and cheese. But I especially love the complimentary mini muffins they bring to the table. We always get seconds, sometimes thirds.
I have a hard time not filling up on them before my meal comes. They are really cheesy and sweet, almost like a dessert.
This is a really simple recipe and they come really close to the real thing. You will need a mini muffin pan.
You could make them larger, but I love them bite-sized.
They’re made from super simple ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, and soda, buttermilk, butter and cheese. Plus a little vanilla extract.
It’s the vanilla extract that gives them that somethin somethin.
Cheesy Biscuits go well with any meal but they also make a fantastic snack all on their own. Watch them disappear in a flash!
