Biscuits from Imogene Duckworthy

Imogene worked for her Uncle Huey, waiting tables at Huey's Hash, for more years than she cared to remember. She didn't just take orders and balance hot plates on her arms, though. She paid attention in the kitchen. Especially when Clem, the cook, decided to put his Cheddar Green Onion Biscuits on the menu.

You won't find this recipe in Choke, the first Imogene Duckworthy Mystery, but she'd like you to have it in case you find yourself invited to a potluck and don't know what to bring. You can always use more biscuits.

If you're curious about what happened after Immy quit her job in a huff, you can wade into that recipe for disaster by getting either a paperback or e-book copy of the novel. It's for sale in lots of places. Visit to find one.

And now, the recipe Immy copied down when she saw Clem mixing up those goodies!

Cheddar Green Onion Biscuits

2 1/4 c. Bisquick

6 T. butter, chopped coarsely

1 1/2 t. minced garlic

6 oz. grated sharp cheddar cheese

3 green onions (or scallions) chopped finely

1 c. buttermilk

Cut butter into Bisquick until the texture of coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese, onions, and garlic. Add buttermilk and stir just enough to mix. Do not overmix.

Drop onto greased cookie sheet or pizza stone by heaping teaspoonsful.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes nearly 4 dozen.

Optional: Add 4 oz. coarsely chopped green chili or jalapeno peppers.
