These Homemade Sweet Potato Drop Biscuits are so Yummy!  They make for a delicious breakfast. I’ll tell you that I didn’t make mine super sweet because the sweet potato is naturally sweet. I also incorporated Greek yogurt to balance out the sweetness of the brown sugar and it worked perfectly!

You could go this route, but why. It takes over an hour to bake the sweet potato. Then you have to let it cool so you can peel and process the sweet potatoes through a food mill to get the right consistency. I have a better idea!

Prep Time: 15 to 20 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 18 to 20 minutes (watch carefully after the 15-minute mark)
Total Time: 50 minutes
Yields: 22 standard size biscuits
Equipment: Food processor, 3 baking sheet pans, large cookie-dough scoop, parchment paper, pastry brush, 2 large mixing bowls

Ingredients:
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons of baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 teaspoon of Kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon of fresh nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 sticks of unsalted cubed cold butter
8 ounces (2 4-ounce jars) of organic “baby” sweet potato purèe
8 ounces of Greek yogurt
1 cup of packed dark brown sugar

Directions:
Preheat oven to 450-degrees F.
Tip: You want to process the ingredients in stages. Do Not overfill the food processor.

Whisk dry ingredients together in a mixing large bowl. Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients into a food processor with 1/3 of the cold diced cubed butter. Pulse until butter is the size of peas. The flour and butter mixture needs to look like coarse crumbs. Repeat this process until all the flour and butter have been processed through the food processor and return to the bowl. Place the flour/butter mixture into the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, in a large mixing bowl, add the sweet potato puree, brown sugar, and Greek yogurt, mix to combine. Pour the wet mixture into a large measuring making the process easier to combine. Mix the wet into the dry ingredients just until the flour is incorporated. Do not overwork the dough. The mixture will have a sticky consistency.

Scoop the dough on lined parchment paper baking sheets about 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until dough is set and just golden brown. To test if done, take a toothpick and if it comes out clean they’re done.

Once the biscuits come out of the oven and are still nice and hot, lightly brush the tops of each one with melted butter. Serve hot or warm. These are my Homemade Sweet Potato Drop Biscuits.

Tip: Keep a close eye on the biscuits after 15 minutes.

Note: If needed, they can be reheated for 5 minutes at 400-degrees F. and be just perfect.

Homemade Sweet Potato Drop Biscuits

I love these biscuits and I have a shortcut that will make you want to make these as often as you make regular drop biscuits. The sweetness of sweet potatoes just adds so much flavor to a drop biscuit.

Before you can even start on the biscuits you need to bake the sweet potatoes, remove their skins, and lastly process them until they are pureed. Well, not anymore!  What’s just as healthy than the real thing, yet ready to use, has no artificial preservatives, and is organic?

Prep Time: 10 to 15 minutes
Cook Time: 14 to 16 minutes
Total Time: 31 minutes
Yields: 8 to 10 standard size biscuits
Equipment: Food processor, 3 rimmed baking sheet pans, parchment paper, large mixing bowl, small mixing bowl, measuring cup, measuring spoons

Ingredients:
3 cups of all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of Kosher salt
2 3/4 sticks of cold unsalted butter, 1 3/4 cubed, reserve 1 stick for tops
1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar
1 3/4 cups of whole milk
2 tablespoons of dried parsley flakes

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425-degrees F.
Place all the dry ingredients, including the shredded cheddar, into the food processor.

Tip: Add the cheese to the flour mixture before adding the cold cubed butter. The reason is so that the cheese will be evenly distributed throughout the flour.

Tip: Keep cubed butter in the refrigerator until needed.

Next, add the cold cubed butter to the food processor and pulse until the butter pieces become the size of small peas.

Through the feed tube, add the milk slowly until the dough just comes together. Using either a large spoon or a 1/4 cup measure drop the biscuit dough onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet pans. Make sure they are around 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart.

Bake for 14 to 16 minutes. When a toothpick comes out clean they’re done. Brush the tops liberally with the melted butter and dried parsley mixture, serve warm or at room temperature.

Now you can have the most delicious Homemade Cheddar Drop Biscuits whenever you want.
