These parmesan herb biscuits are bursting with fresh garlic and savory herbs in every flavorful bite of buttery, fluffy biscuit! A lovely accompaniment to pasta dishes, grilled or roasted meats and more.
To get started, gather the ingredients for the filling. I melt the butter and combine the garlic and dried herbs with the butter and let it rest while I prepare the biscuit dough. If using fresh herbs, you can hold off adding it to the butter. Dried herbs have a bit more flavor when they’ve had time to absorb some of the butter and reconstitute.
The best part is that this uses our favorite homemade quick mix aka Copycat Bisquick to throw these together quickly and easily. Just mix the homemade quick mix with milk and then roll it out on a lightly floured surface.
Spread the garlic herb butter liberally over the top of the dough. Then cover with parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
Seriously, just completely cover the dough with herbs and parmesan. It’s going to be SO GOOD!
Then, starting at the long edge, roll the dough into a log.
Cut the log into 1″ thick slices and place them in a lightly greased baking dish.
You can leave them touching if you want to, but I generally prefer to give them some space to expand as they bake.
Then, place them in the preheated oven and bake them!
If you’d like you can brush them with additional (melted) garlic herb butter when they come out of the oven as well. I don’t usually find this to be necessary, but I kinda agree with Paula Dean, more butter is better.
You’ll notice that our easy homemade buttery herb biscuits recipe utilizes our homemade quick mix, but if you don’t happen to have any of that on hand, you can use Bisquick in its place. If you don’t happen to have Bisquick, I’ve provided a single batch scratch biscuit mix recipe at the bottom for your convenience.
Savory Parmesan Herb Biscuits Recipe
2 1/4 c. Homemade Quick Mix
3/4 c. Milk
1 T. Minced Garlic (or 3 cloves finely minced)
1 T. Fresh Chopped Parsley (or 1 tsp Dried)
1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
1/2 c. melted butter
1/3 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
In a mixing bowl combine the quick mix and milk until it forms a soft dough. Do not overmix or the biscuits will be tough.
Roll the dough on a floured surface. In a small bowl mix butter, garlic & parsley. Spread the mix over the dough (the back of a spoon works great!), sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese.
Roll lengthwise into a log and slice in 1″ pieces. Place them on an un-greased cookie sheet, sides touching slightly. Bake at 425°F for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Single Batch Biscuit Mix

1 tsp salt
1 T. Sugar
1/4 c. Shortening
3/4 c. Milk
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl mixing well till combined. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles crumbs, add the milk to form a soft dough, don’t overmix.
