Three Cheese Drop Biscuits

Three Cheese Drop Biscuits are a favorite companion for dinner! - Bake or Break

I have a bit of a soft spot for biscuits. I never really baked them that much until the last few years. But, now they are one of my favorite things to bake for breakfast or as a dinner accompaniment.

These Three Cheese Drop Biscuits are a favorite with us. They’re a great, quick, cheese-y option for breakfast or brunch. Plus, they are the perfect companion to a big bowl of soup or chili or even alongside some pasta.

The beauty of these biscuits is that you can easily change up the spices and cheeses to complement your meal. I almost always make them with garlic to go along with our tendencies to add garlic to pretty much everything we cook. Add a little fresh black pepper if you like, too. I also occasionally like using smoked paprika, which is one of my spice obsessions.

I know you’ve all heard for years how I can’t understand Quinn’s aversion to some foods (How can someone not like coconut?!?). It comes up a lot when you share meals with someone every day, you know. One of his biggest food dislikes is bacon. Let’s all just think about that for a minute. Bacon! Come on!

I, on the other hand, love bacon just like anyone should, although I don’t get to cook with it often. Thanks to PHILADELPHIA, though, I can enjoy a little bacon with the new Bacon Cream Cheese Spread. I have to tell you, a little bit of that delicious spread on one of these biscuits is just fabulous.

As with all of PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, the new Bacon Cream Cheese Spread is made with fresh milk and real cream. But, now they’ve added Oscar Mayer bacon for a spread that’s a perfect pairing for biscuits, bagels, pretzels, sandwiches, and just about anything that would benefit from a little bacon.

Three Cheese Drop Biscuits are a favorite companion for dinner! - Bake or Break


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1.5 ounces grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1.5 ounces grated Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1.5 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone liner or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and garlic powder.
  3. Add the butter and mix with a pastry blender or a fork until the butter is the size of peas. Stir in the cheeses.
  4. Add the buttermilk and mix just until combined.*
  5. Using 3 tablespoons of dough at a time**, drop the dough onto prepared pan, leaving about 1 & 1/2 inches between biscuits.
  6. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.


*I invariably end up mixing the last bit with my hands to make sure it all gets mixed well without over-mixing. **A 3-tablespoon cookie scoop works wonderfully.

  1. These look great. I love anything cheese. This is the first time I have seen the cream cheese with bacon. I have to get it.

  2. looks really good but i really must say –
    3-cheese or Three-cheese Drop biscuits is how this should be written. I was excited thinking you were going to have 3 different kinds of recipes….;)

  3. Philadelphia Cream cheese is hard to find in my country, and when you find it,it is very expensive because it is imported. I will make these biscuits and will try to emulate this delicious spread with regular cream cheese with crispy bacon added to it. Any tip to make it taste as similar as possible will be appreciated.
