These savory cheddar chive drop biscuits are incredibly delicious and perfect for feeding a crowd! There’s no need to roll out or cut your dough — simply mix everything up in one bowl, drop on your pan and bake!

These cheddar chive drop biscuits have always been a favorite among friends and they’re so easy to whip up — perfect for holiday gatherings! So when we attended a thanksgiving celebration with over 30 guests this past year, you can be sure these biscuits were on the menu! While I tend to make this recipe more in the winter, I’ve recently found that these flaky buttermilk biscuits are perfect for summer as well and are always a hit at picnics and grill outs!

There’s no rolling out and cutting dough in this recipe – we just drop spoonfuls of dough onto a pan and they come out light and fluffy! The key to good drop biscuits is to not overwork the dough. Other than that, just mix everything together quickly and you’re all set! I use cheddar cheese here, but you could try using other shredded cheeses or a mix of your favorites.
