Salami and Scallion Biscuits

Published by at 10:17 am under Cooking at Home

When it comes to baking, we prefer to do more savory baking than sweet baking – so when we made Salami and Scallion Biscuits, we liked that it was great as a quick snack, or an accompaniment for our dinner. I’m not a big fan of salami, but Daniel can’t get enough of salami! So, I’m sure you can deduce who ate most of the biscuits! We used a great recipe found online by Melissa Clark of the New York Times to help us make these quick and delightful biscuits. Salami and scallions seem to go hand in hand because you have a good balance of saltiness from the cured meat and the mild onion flavor of the scallions. Who knows? Someone came up with this recipe a long time ago, and it’s just classic. Make it sometime when you have some extra salami to get rid of. It’s great to stretch it to the max!

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tbsp baking powder, 2 tsp sugar and 1 tsp kosher salt. Then add 3 tbsp cubed and chilled butter, 1/4 cup chopped salami, and 2 tbsp chopped scallions.

To form a dough, add 3/4 cup of heavy cream (we used half and half, ha!) until a shaggy dough forms. Once you knead it to form a dough, pat it down to 1/2 inch or 1-inch and cut out the biscuits. If you don't have a circle cookie cutter, you can use a cup like we did. Remember to press the scraps together and form as many biscuits as possible.

Once it's all formed, transfer to a baking sheet and brush the top with some melted butter. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees, or until biscuits are lightly browned.

Salami and Scallion Biscuits... savor them!

    Mmm! I’m glad you guys put up this recipe as I’ve always been a big fan of biscuits and salami. This seems like a good twist on just plain boring biscuits!

    Wow, I would have never thought to put salami in biscuits. Looks amazing!

    Sandy, if you were around, I would’ve given you some to eat! I’m not a biscuit fan, haha.

    Alta – salami in biscuits is quite common. This kind of biscuit doesn’t require a gravy, so it’s less maintenance!

    This is perfect for me! I love biscuits (thats an understatement). And I like my salami warm (hate it cold). I always go with bacon and chive or cheddar and chive, love the idea of changing it up a bit with salami.

    Awesome savoury biscuits. Looks very delicious!

    That’s really great to mix in salami and scallions. I can just imagine the flavor it brings to the biscuits. I’m totally hitting these up.

    I’m making these for breakfast tomorrow! So thankful for my kitchen aid & for that extra salami in the house!

  11. Conor @ HoldtheBeefon 02 Mar 2010 at 4:05 pm

    With the salami and scallions inside, the raw dough looks good enough to eat too. Oh but then you scroll down to see the final product and they look so golden brown and delicious!

    I love the little baby one made of scraps too :)

  12. thefoodaddictson 02 Mar 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Bianca – yay! please come back and let us know how they turned out!!

    Conor – Haha, you noticed the little baby one we made! Yup, we don’t waste!

    i’m a mega fan of biscuits, and when meat andherbs and the like are incorporated into the dough, well, that’s even better. nicely done!

  14. Chef Eon 03 Mar 2010 at 5:16 am

    Oh yum! You have me in the mood to make biscuits or scones, so I am off to the kitchen!

  15. Bizon 03 Mar 2010 at 12:59 pm

    You had me at salami!! I love any kind of biscuits, but I don’t make them very often. But my daughters birthday is this weekend and she said “can you make sausage biscuits and gravy for my birthday breakfast!”

    I guess I’ll be working out an additional day this week! :D

    These look wonderful–I love salami! Actually, I recall seeing this recipe in the Times and thinking I should hold on to it, but I neglected to do so…thanks for the reminder!

  18. 5 Star Foodieon 03 Mar 2010 at 5:08 pm

    A very timely recipe as my daughter just discovered that she loves salami – she would be all over those biscuits!

  19. noobcookon 03 Mar 2010 at 7:57 pm

  20. Nastassia (LetMeEatCake)on 03 Mar 2010 at 11:31 pm

    salami in a biscuit sounds so good! i can’t say that i have ever seen a biscuit with salami before. i have yet to make biscuits from scratch (too lazy) but when i do i am definitely adding salami and scallions! thanks for sharing.

  21. Hannaon 04 Mar 2010 at 7:46 am

    Your biscuits look very yummy! buttery biscuit is one of my kids favorites … I will give it a try this weekend and I will substitude the green onion with other herbs that I may have at home since my kids don’t like seeing green onion on their foods.

  22. thefoodaddictson 04 Mar 2010 at 11:12 pm

    thanks guys… it’s great to hear that many of you are attempting to try these biscuits! even though it’s not our own recipe, we like that we’re able to inspire you through this post and the photos!

  23. Mikeon 07 Mar 2010 at 3:52 pm

    This is my kind of food! Great looking biscuits. With the amount of recipes floating around the net that include ham, I don’t know why I’ve never considered adding salami to my biscuits. Thanks for the inspiration.
