Happy Fourth of July everybody! This year, fourth of July is going to feel a bit strange being in the middle of the week. Do we celebrate the weekend before, the weekend after, all week long? I’m not too sure how to answer that one, but no matter when you decide to celebrate I hope it includes some type of red, white, and blue all wrapped up in a delicious treat.
Because The Fourth of July lands on a week day this year, I wanted to create a recipe that would help celebrate even if you are rushed off to work or your schedule remains hectic. These blueberry goat cheese morning biscuits go great with your morning cup of coffee, scrambled eggs, or a side of crispy bacon. You can even make the dough ahead of time, cut the biscuits out, and have the pan ready to pop in the oven in the morning to save some time if your schedule doesn’t allow for a slow morning. I know we all love convenience and these biscuits allow for that. What’s even better is that these biscuits taste great the next day too, simply warm them up and enjoy.
My criteria for a delicious biscuit includes only a few things, but they are most important. They must be flaky, buttery, moist, and hold together well. These biscuits can check the criteria off the list because they are all of the above– flaky, sweet, and dough-like, making them oh so delicious. The addition of the blueberries adds a bit of color to them, if you have some strawberry jam or jelly this would really make for a colorful Fourth of July breakfast. Not too many people I know have themed breakfasts but I figured, why not? Why not start the morning off with some inspiration and celebration?
Tip: When making these biscuits, I roll the dough out after chilling in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. This allows for the butter to set. When rolling out my dough, I sandwich the blueberries between two layers of dough, that way the blueberries are inside the biscuits instead of on top. If you do not have a biscuit cutter, simply use a large face drinking glass to cut out the biscuits instead.
