A close up of several beet and cheese biscuits.

Beet and Cheese Biscuits

Teri & Jenny
We took Cheese Biscuits and added beets to give them an earthy taste and a beautiful pink color. The beet flavor is very mild in case you are worried. These Beet and Cheese Biscuits go well with anything! This recipe makes 10 biscuits.

Notes

For Roasted Red Beet Puree: Preheat oven to 400˚F. Place 2 clean beets atop a sheet of foil and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle of salt and pepper. Wrap beets tightly and place directly onto the center oven rack and roast for 40 to 45 minutes or until fork tender. Allow beets to cool before peeling and pureeing in a food processor until smooth.
