When we took a weekend trip to Nashville we had these incredible blue cheese biscuit steak sliders at Southern Steak and Oyster. I knew I could figure out how to make these biscuits and my family would love them since they love my beer biscuits made with biscuit mix.
The help of a biscuit mix makes the list of ingredients shorter than a completely from-scratch biscuit. Here are the ingredients you will need:
- Bisquick - The standard baking mix that makes biscuits so easy to make. Bisquick mix is the go-to mix I use.
- Butter - Cold 100% real butter. The colder the better to cut into small pieces.
- Buttermilk - The tanginess of the buttermilk matches the blue cheese in this biscuit recipe.
- Blue Cheese - Either whole blue cheese or blue cheese crumbles will work for this recipe.
- Garlic Salt

How do you make Bisquick Blue Cheese Biscuits?
These Bisquick blue cheese biscuits are mixed together quickly and then baked while you finish up your main dish on a chaotic weeknight. They're incredibly easy to whip up, thanks to the magic of biscuit mix.
Dump the biscuit mix in a large mixing bowl and then add the cold butter, diced into small pieces or cubes. You can also grate the butter.
Cut the butter chunks into the bisquick. Then add the blue cheese and buttermilk. Stir to just combine. The dough will be sticky but not runny.
Drop the biscuits on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet with a large scoop. Sprinkle with garlic salt.
Place the blue cheese biscuits into the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 12-15 minutes until they are golden brown. Brush with melted butter for extra buttery flavor.
These delightful blue cheese biscuits are the perfect blend of fluffy, flavorful, and easy to make. Surprise everyone when they think it is just salad for dinner with these golden brown biscuits.
Hint: Freeze your butter and then grate your butter with a cheese grater to have even finer butter to incorporate into the flour.
Don't have biscuit mix, buttermilk, or blue cheese, you can still make a version of these biscuits with these substitutions.
- Biscuit Mix Substitute - instead of biscuit mix, make your own with 3 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 2 teaspoons baking soda, and 2 teaspoons salt.
- Gluten-Free Biscuit Mix - Substitute the traditional biscuit mix for the gluten-free biscuit mix.
- Buttermilk Substitute - If you need buttermilk, make it with one cup of milk and a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice.
- Blue Cheese Substitute - Whether you don't like blue cheese or have an allergy to it, you can substitute feta cheese for similar consistency and tang.
This recipe should be just fine as a regular biscuit mix without any cheese add it to it as well. You can also easily omit the garlic salt on the top of the biscuits if it isn't your thing.
This recipe is easily changeable with the various different ingredients. Here are some ideas.
- Change the Cheese: Blue cheese provides a bold and tangy flavor to these biscuits. If you prefer a milder taste, you can use a different cheese like cheddar or mozzarella.
- Adding Herbs: Enhance the flavor by incorporating a variety of herbs such as parsley, thyme, rosemary, or oregano into the biscuit mix.
- Adding Bacon: Add fried bacon crumbles to the biscuits for a great blue cheese and bacon biscuit.

Making biscuits is a science and an art. They are one of those things you will have to make to perfect. But start with the right equipment and ingredients.
Here are the products you need to make these easy drop biscuits.
Store these blue cheese biscuits in a ziploc bag in the fridge for up to a week. Quickly reheat in the microwave for 10 seconds to bring life back into the biscuits. The leftover biscuits are perfect with sliced steak for a quick steak biscuit recipe.
These Bisquick blue cheese biscuits can also be frozen for up to three months in a freezer bag. I recommend double wrapping with freezer bags.
Freeze your butter and then grate your butter with a cheese grater to have even finer butter to incorporate into the flour. Super cold butter is also easier to dice into cubes even if you don't grate it.
If the baking mix you are using to make biscuits doesn't have enough liquid in the mix your biscuits will be dry. You want to make sure your biscuit dough is extra sticky.
Overmixing the biscuits makes them harder. Just mix the biscuit mix enough to incorporate the ingredients. The more you mix the less fluffy the biscuits will be.
