Butternut Squash and Sage Biscuits

by FarmgirlGourmet

I don’t know what it is this year, but my Waltham Butternut Squash has gone bizerk!  I guess I’m not alone since Teri Carstens, who follows Farmgirl Gourmet on Facebook, expressed the same thing!  I must have about 30 of them.  And they are enormous!!  So, I’ve been on the hunt for new and inventive ways to use them up.  I know you all saw the Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese with Brie and Bacon that we had last week.  It was UNBELIEVABLE.  The squash made it so creamy and dreamy.  I’d like a bowl of it right now.  Ok, sorry, I’m back.  Anyway, we had these biscuits the other night and they were fan-tastic!  Since it makes quite a few, I recommend this breakfast for the next morning –  split it in half and toast, top with a fried egg, thin slices of Fontina cheese and quickly fried ham slice (or bacon).  Holy YUM!  Good stuff.  Anyway, I hope you’re drooling as badly as I am.  Without further ado, here’s the recipe.

Butternut Squash and Sage Biscuits
[print]


Ingredients
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons fresh sage, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into small chunks
1 cup butternut squash puree
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar

Directions
1 Preheat oven to 425.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2 In a food processor add the flour, baking powder, sage, salt and black pepper, pulse a few times to combine.  Add the butter and pulse until it resembles coarse meal, about 5-6 pulses.

3 In a medium bowl, whisk together the butternut squash puree, milk and sugar.  Add to the flour mixture and pulse just until combined but still crumbly.  Turn out onto a floured board and knead lightly to bring the dough together.  Pat out into a 1-inch think round and cut out biscuits and add to the baking sheet.

4 Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the biscuits are lightly browned and puffed.

Makes 8-10 biscuits

Butternut squash and sage are a match made in heaven. This is such a wonderful way to bring a little variety to biscuits.

What scrumptious biscuits for autumn! These would be lovely paired with a hearty soup or stew. Although this recipe may just find a special place at my Thanksgiving table!

I’ve had sweet potato biscuits but never butternut squash! Sounds wonderful with the sage.

I’ve had sweet potato biscuits before, but never ones made with butternut squash. They look amazing!

These sound so delicious! Aaaand, now that I know about the existence of a recipe for mac & cheese that incorporates squash, brie, and bacon, I won’t be able to stop thinking about it until I make it. It’s supposed to rain this weekend and I just made a huge pot of creamy potato chive soup – thinking these would be a nice accompaniment.

These sound like great fall comfort food. I can’t wait to try them out!
