I ask you WHY NOT? I have been on the search for grilled sides this spring and I have tried this several times but I now have it right. Really the answer was quit simple. All I needed to do was turn down the heat and rotate the pan… Dah…
I almost always have extra space on the grill for an easy side like this.
Use any drop biscuit recipe you want. I went with a simple one from an old Betty Crocker Cookbook that I have used for years.
2 cups AP flour
1 T baking powder
1 t salt
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup buttermilk
Note on the buttermilk: You can use dried buttermilk which is what I do or you can substitute for the buttermilk with 1 cup warm milk with 1-2 t vinegar added and set for 5 – 10 minutes
If grill is not already on, preheat to medium.
First combine flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
Brush a cast iron skillet with 1-2 t of oil.
Mix buttermilk and oil. Then wet into dry. Mix until moist.
Using a large tablespoon heaping with dough, make eight biscuits and place in pan.
Place on grill over medium heat. Rotate pan after 8-9 minutes.
Cook until browning about 18 minutes.
