Salami Four Cheese Biscuits

A couple of weeks ago, I was watching Giada on Food Network and she was making these salami & gorgonzola biscuits. I was immediately intrigued and wanted to make them. I had intentions of making these for our sunday school class, but at the last minute just decided to use up some packaged cinnamon rolls. I did make this for my parents annual Christmas Caroling Party though, and they were gone within minutes! I subbed the gorgonzola with a four cheese blend, but I’m sure you could use any kind of shredded cheese to substitute. These are just melt in your mouth delicious! They are buttery and golden and had a slight salty bite with the salami, but it’s not too overpowering. Also, if you aren’t into salami I bet ham would be a good alternative. This would be wonderful for a party or brunch. I served these with some homemade jelly on the side, but they are also great by themselves.

Salami Four Cheese Biscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup finely diced salami
2 tablespoons shredded four cheese blend or cheddar cheese
Special equipment: 1-inch diameter cookie cutter

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the butter and cut it into the mixture using a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. (You can also do this in a food proccessor if you have one).

Transfer the biscuit mixture to a medium bowl. Add the buttermilk, salami, and shredded cheese. Stir until the mixture forms a ball. Turn the mixture out on a floured surface. Roll to 1/2-inch thick. Using a 1-inch diameter cookie cutter, cut out the biscuits and place them 2 baking sheets.

Bake until golden, about 8 to 10 minutes.
