gruyere and scallion drop biscuits
Gruyere and scallion drop biscuits pair perfectly with soup or eggs and bacon! My version is made with whole wheat flour and baked in muffin tins so you don’t have to roll and stamp out individual biscuits.
Growing up in an Iranian home I learned to always be ready to welcome unexpected guests with something delicious. Iranians are known for their hospitality so keeping snacks and versatile ingredients on hand allows me to whip up cookies or biscuits at a moment’s notice. I created this recipe when my mom unexpectedly stopped by one afternoon. With a pot of spinach soup simmering on the stove I wanted to make the meal a little more special with homemade biscuits. This recipe was the perfect foil and the biscuits became an instant family favorite!

- Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour the beaten egg, milk and vinegar in the well.
