I'd never made potato biscuits before and these were quite good. They didn't taste like potato at all, but they were light and yummy. Whereas nobody ate the steak I made that night, these ones were soon gone.
- 1 cup plain mashed potatoes (from gold or red potatoes), cooled
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 Tbsp. cold butter, cut into small pieces
- 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp. buttermilk
- 1 bunch green onions, chopped
- 1 egg white, lightly beaten
- 1 Tbsp. cold water
Preheat oven to 425F.
Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until dissolved. Add mashed potatoes, cheese, buttermilk and green onions and stir until moist.
Put dough on a floured surface and knead lightly 5 times. Roll dough to a 3/4" thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter. Place on a baking sheet.
Mix the egg white with the water. Brush the top of the biscuits. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
