Caramelized Onions Cheese & Chive Sourdough Biscuits

Caramelized Onions Cheese & Chive Sourdough Biscuits

Hi everybody :)

I'm been missing posting these pass couple of days because I've have these back pains, and the pain medication makes me drowsy. I hate been unable to do anything :(  I'm feeling a little better now, so on with my post. 

I been working on my sourdough experiments, whenever I was not laying down because of the pain. This recipe idea came from a King Arthur magazine. They had a picture of these caramelized onion sourdough biscuit using their starter mixture.  When I saw the Golden Sourdough Biscuit recipe in TOH, I adjusted it to make these biscuits. 

Caramelized Onions Cheese & Chive Sourdough Biscuits
Golden Sourdough Biscuits  adapted The Taste of Home Baking Book

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup Sourdough Starter (at room temperature)
Sourdough Starter - Taste of Home 
Additional butter, melted

Additional Ingredients

1 Onion, small; sliced thinly about 1/4 cup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons butter
2 tablespoons Chives
1/3 cup Cheddar Cheese

In a small saucepan, place butter, brown sugar, and onion over medium heat. Stirring until butter melt and sugar dissolved, reduce heat to low. 
 Cook for about 20 minutes, covered until onions are golden brown.  Set aside to cool.
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the additional ingredients with the caramelized onions. 
 Combine Sourdough Starter and buttermilk; stir into crumb mixture with a fork.
Turn onto a well-floured surface; knead 10-12 times. Roll to 1/2-in. thickness. 
Cut with a floured 2 1/2-in biscuits cutter. Place 2 in apart on a grease baking sheet.
Bake at 425° for 12 to 15 minutes or golden brown. Yield: about 1 dozen. Brush tops with melted butter. Remove from pan, cool on wire rack.
What I Did and/or Think:

The changes I made are in Bold, Italic and Purple.
The Taste: I love the savory flavor of the biscuit. The caramelized onions added a little sweetness, the cheese and chives blended well together. They smelled delicious while cooking too, which is always a plus :). 

I thought the biscuit would be perfect with sliced ham, so I made ham sandwiches, using deli ham, cheddar cheese, and honey mustard. DELICIOUS! REPEAT!

ENJOY! Come again...
