Cheddar Salsa Biscuit Rolls

Here is a simple brunch, lunch or appetizer idea...using your own favorite biscuit dough or mine.   Serve with additional salsa or dill pickles.

Biscuit Recipe:
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cold
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup hot salsa
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  1. Combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt and sugar.
  2. Cut in butter, using a pastry blender to form a mixture of coarse crumbs.
  3. Whisk together buttermilk and egg.
  4. Add to crumbs, and mix gently to form a soft dough.  
  5. Turn onto flour surface, and knead gently about ten times. 
  6. Gently roll into a rectangle...about 10" x 16".
  7. Spread with salsa and sprinkle with grated cheese.
  8. Roll up from the long side, and pinch edge of dough to seal.
  9. Cut into 16 equal slices.
  10. Place on parchment lined baking sheet.
  11. Bake at 400°F until golden (12-14 minutes).
Yield: 16

These biscuits are best fresh from the oven...but can be frozen and re-heated later. 


  1. Judy - these look delicious. I love this kind of thing, especially for soup days!! Thanks for the recipe.

  2. They look utterly delicious. I loved the fact that they only take 12 minutes to bake. After all that hard work, dessert is deserved, and very quickly, too:)

  3. Yes, I agree...the perfect thing to go with a bowl of soup! Thanks, Judy!

  4. Those look scrumptiodelicious !! ....

  5. These look delicious. I'll sometime make twirls with a sweet/cinnamon filling, but I love the idea of a savory one.

  6. Made these yesterday and they are delicious!
