Spinach Feta Biscuits

(My inspiration: Joy the Baker)

Spinach mixture…

     2 tbsp olive oil
     1/3 cup green onion or chives, chopped
     2 garlic cloves, minced
     1 bunch fresh spinach, washed and stems removed
     salt & pepper to taste
     pinch of nutmeg
     2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Wash your spinach and remove the stems. Roughly chop. Warm a medium size skillet over med heat. Add olive oil, chives & garlic. Saute for a couple of minutes.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Add prepared spinach a little at a time and cook down. This only takes a few minutes. Turn the heat up a little to cook the moisture out. Add salt and pepper to taste & nutmeg. Remove from heat.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Now stir in feta. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spray baking sheet/s with non stick spray

Biscuits...

     3 cups all purpose flour
     2 tbsp sugar
     1 tbsp baking powder
     1/2 tsp baking soda
     2 tsp salt
     1 cup cold butter
     1 egg
     3/4 cup buttermilk

     1 lightly beaten egg for egg wash

Spinach Feta Biscuits

To a large mixing bowl add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda & salt. Cut your cold butter into chunks and add it to the flour mixture.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or 2 knives until mixture is crumbly.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

In another bowl combine egg and buttermilk.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Make a well in the flour mixture and add the egg/buttermilk. Stir until just combined. Mixture will be sauggy.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Add cooled spinach mixture and stir to combine. Do not overmix! My dough was on the wet side but the end result was great!

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Turn dough onto floured surface and pat into 3/3 inch thick circle. Mine was a little thicker.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Using a round or square biscuit cutter, cut biscuits until dough is gone. The size is totally up to you!

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Place on your baking sheet 1 inch apart.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Brush tops with your egg wash and sprinkle with black pepper. I forgot the pepper! Boo! I love pepper!

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until tops are golden brown.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Anything baked is best the first day, but these biscuits were good for several days. They don’t need a thing added to them.

Spinach Feta Biscuits

Just eat them as they are for a tasty, savory & tangy treat or pair them with soup or a nice juicy steak! Just thinking about them makes me want to make them again! I may have to run to the market for spinach!

I stored mine uncovered on a baking sheet for a couple of days. Then I moved them to a bread keeper like this one available from Amazon here.
