What herbs will you be growing this year? I planted sage last summer, discovered a new love for sage, and will be planting it again. You cannot even begin to compare fresh sage to dried. In my opinion, they are worlds apart. This biscuit recipe is delicious and incorporates fresh sage. Enjoy!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage leaves
- 5 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 5 bacon slices, cooked crisp and chopped
- 3/4 cup grated Cheddar
- 3/4 cup well-shaken buttermilk
Preheat oven to 450°F. and grease a large baking sheet.
Into a bowl sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir in sage and with fingertips blend in butter until mixture resembles meal. Stir in bacon and Cheddar. Add buttermilk and stir until mixture just forms a dough. Gather dough into a ball and on a lightly floured surface knead gently 8 times. Pat out dough into a 6- by 5-inch rectangle. Cut dough into 9 rectangles and arrange about 1 inch apart on baking sheet. Bake biscuits in middle of oven 15 minutes.

Those look really tasty. We have grown sage for a number of years, and this Spring it is blooming – the most geogeous lavendar-colored flowers…I’ll have to take a photo and post it. I’ve never had our sage bloom like this before! Has yours? Lucky for us, it is perennial.
Yes, please do take a photo. I’ve never seen sage blooming. Unfortunately, I think our winters are too cold for sage to last.
Your biscuits sound terrific…I love sage and grow it in my garden.
Thank you Karen. I saw something I hadn’t seen before at the garden store – pineapple sage! Have you ever tried that?
I have seen it at the garden center but haven’t tried growing it.
These look delicious! I love sage as well! Sage, bacon and cheddar must be so yummy, definitely will try it 🙂
