Recipe Box, Pimiento Cheese Biscuit Bites

These 5 minute Prep biscuits pack a punch with pimiento cheese and french fried onions

I was inspired by a recipe I saw recently on Plain Chicken using fried onions and decided to amp it up even more with pimiento cheese

You can use plain cheddar cheese if you prefer, with a little mayonnaise {see substitution in recipe below}

Bisquick makes quick work of mixing up the dough

The onions aren’t overpowering, they just add another subtle layer of flavor

They bake up in minutes

Don’t burn your fingers!  You will want to grab one right away!

Cook Time 18 minutes
Course Appetizer, Bread, Side Dish, Snack
Cuisine American, Southern
Servings 18 biscuits


Pimiento Cheese

  • 8 oz Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar
  • 8 oz Cracker Barrel Vermont White Cheddar
  • 4 oz chopped pimentos drained well
  • 1/4-1/2 cup quality mayonnaise like Dukes or Hellman's


  • 1 1/2 cups Bisquick Baking Mix
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup pimiento cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup packaged fried onion pieces like Trader Joe’s, the Real Gourmet, or French’s
  • 1-2 T butter softened, optional
  • pepper to taste


Pimiento Cheese

  • Shred cheeses. Place cheese and drained pimientos into a bowl or food processor with 1/4 cup mayo and stir or pulse just a few times until just mixed.
  • Check to see if mixture holds together. If it is too dry add more mayo, 1-2 T and pulse once or twice. Check and add additional mayo until you get the consistency you want. I use just enough mayonnaise to bind, you want to taste the cheese, not the mayo!
  • Do not overmix! Makes about 2 1/2 cups. Keep in refrigerator for up to 1 month.


  • Mix cheeses and milk into Bisquick mix in a mixing bowl. Stir in onions. Scoop into well sprayed mini muffin tins
  • Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes until golden. Do not overbake. Brush tops with butter if desired. Cool 5 minutes and then remove from pans. Makes about 18 mini biscuits

    Love pimento cheese and adding it to biscuits, sounds WONDERFUL!

  2. Another good one – pinned!

  3. These look really good — a wonderful little appetizer or accompaniment for a table where you want a biscuit — but there’s plenty of other stuff so you don’t want too much!

    I need to make my Christmas list. I’m seeing a few pretty amazing things on your shopping site!
