How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Cook the potato in boiling water 15 minutes or until very tender. Drain well; mash potato, and cool.

Step 3

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add mashed potato, cheese, buttermilk, and green onions; stir just until moist.

Step 4

Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead lightly 5 times. Roll dough to a 3/4-inch thickness, and cut with a 3-inch biscuit cutter. Place on a baking sheet. Combine water and egg white, and brush over biscuits. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until golden.

I liked these a lot, but my husband couldn't stop raving about them. He said they tasted like pierogis. I used a cup of leftover mashed red potatoes (including skin), and did drop biscuits instead of kneading them. They were really easy and very filling. I will definitely make these again!

Horrible texture, not biscuit-like at all, and the taste was extremely bland. Worst biscuit recipe I've encountered

Don't personally care for bisquits and rarely make them so not familiar with how they bake etc. Thought they would rise a little more than they did. Was careful to have a preheated oven first so that was not the problem. They were tasty enough but if I make them again, will add a little more punch of flavor. Pretty enough in the bread basket for my family alongside our beef stew and a bottle of wine.
