I have been trying some weight watcher friendly recipes lately, and came across this EZ drop biscuit. The texture is a bit different with this recipe, not as light and airy, but still very delicious....especially with a bowl of chili.
I think the yogurt adds a nice tang, and I really liked the bit of cheddar. The chives were a perfect add in too.
I will make these again, at only 3 points for the green plan, they are a very tasty alternative!
Cheddar Chive Drop Biscuits ( 3 points green ww)

Mix and drop onto parchment lined baking sheet. serves 6. Bake at 400 until lightly browned.
My daughter gave me a recipe scrapbook she had made me for Mother's day. I love it!!! I'm working my way through the recipes...so much fun to try them.( I'll include a few photos of the book below.)
One of my faves is the No Knead Bread. It's so easy to make and we love having a hearty slice with soups and casseroles. I dont even know if you can fail! It does require a dutch oven though.
Here it is:
Here it is:
No Knead Bread
( trish yearwood)
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of whole wheat flour
2 tsp. Salt
1 1/8 th tsp. Active dry yeast which is half of a packet.
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 c. Shredded cheese any flavor
Whisk the flours,salt and yeast. Pour in the water and combine to make a sticky dough. Cover with plastic and leave in a warm area for 8 hours. Preheat oven to 450 with the dutch oven inside.
Take some flour in your hands and form the dough into a round. Place on some parchment paper and lower into the dutch oven. Cover with lid and bake 40 minutes. Uncover and top with cheese. Bake another 10 to 15 minutes until hard.
Yum! I love a good casserole and around here you often see the old standby...Tatortot hotdish served at various functions. You can even buy a dish shaped for the state...Minnesota...comes with the recipe included!
But this one changes it up a bit. Instead of the cream soup...add a can of fiesta nacho cheese soup. And after browning the burger... add taco seasoning.
I often add a dab of sour cream and some chopped cilantro on top.
Great comfort food for these long cold winter days!
Taco tatortot hotdish
1 pound lean burger
1 pack taco seasoning ( or to taste...I add half the packet)
1 can fiesta nacho cheese soup.
1 can corn, drained
3/4 bag or so of tator tots
4 oz. Or more...lol of Cheddar cheese, shredded
Brown the burger. Drain off the fat. Add taco seasoning and 1/4 cup water. Add the soup and corn.
Pour the mixture into a greased 8 x 11 casserole. Top with as many tator tots as you can fit in a single layer.
