If you love everything bagels but want to switch it up, then you will like this recipe for the everything biscuit. I made two dozen to take to a potluck, and they were really good and kind of different. The must-have ingredient is Everything But the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s, but don’t worry. I’ll tell you how to make it. If you buy some of this seasoning, do yourselves a favor and buy several jars at the same time. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, then mix equal amounts of these seasonings: sea salt, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried mince garlic and dried mince onion. I use it on so many things like eggs, roasted veggies, avocado, and salmon. It really adds a kick to an otherwise ordinary food. My biscuit recipe is the best one I have ever found (sorry Joanna Gaines), and this topping just makes it better.
Everything Biscuit Recipe
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 3 teaspoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup shortening (I use Crisco)
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- Everything bagel seasoning
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees while you are mixing the biscuits.
- Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
- Then gently cut in shortening.
- Mix together egg and milk and add to flour. Gently stir with a large spoon till well mixed.
- Put on a floured surface and knead 20 times. Roll out to 1/2 to 3/4 inch thickness and cut out using a biscuit cutter.
- After placing on a ungreased baking sheet, brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with seasoning.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or till medium brown on tops.
- Serve warm. Leftovers can be frozen and reheated for later.
By the way, I use this pastry dough blender, this biscuit cutter, and I have two of these silpats for all of my cookies and biscuits. My 91-year-old mother has been making biscuits for over 20 years, and she always uses those three tools. These savory, light, and fluffy biscuits are perfect for breakfast or brunch or as a side with a nice bowl of hot and hearty soup. They make great vessels for ham, sausage, or bacon. Add cheese and a fried egg, and you have a delicious breakfast sandwich. You could also make a fabulous eggs Benedict using these everything biscuits instead of English muffins. Find that recipe here.
