uttermilk biscuits with garden fresh zucchini and loaded with Parmesan cheese. Great recipe for soft biscuits with rosemary and basil are the perfect addition to any summer meal.
I’ll be honest. I wasn’t sure what to think when I first heard of zucchini in a biscuit. I wasn’t sure it would be good either. But hey, everything zucchini I’ve ever tried has been tasty. And when cheese is involved we know it’s going be slammin’.
And sure enough they pleased not only my tastebuds but the whole family’s. Now I have one more recipe to add to my collection of great ways to use up that crazy zucchini crop.
And have I ever told you about my buttermilk love. That stuff somehow magically makes things better. Like waffles? Oh my word. So much better. Pancakes? Over the top better.
Now, don’t just take my word for it. Try it. Certain things are just better with buttermilk. I can’t explain it nor do I understand the why or how. I just know the results and I love them!
Here’s hoping that you do too. Enjoy the zucchini harvest and these Zucchini Parmesan Buttermilk Biscuits.
