These buttery Homemade Chive Biscuits are delicious buttery biscuits enhanced with the onion flavor of chives.

The beautiful purple bulbs and soft green stalks of the chive plant are certainly lovely additions to my garden. They sway in the wind and last the full length of spring. It is hard to imagine cutting them at times yet when I began using them in the kitchen. It became pretty apparent that I would need to grow much more than I had originally anticipated. Chives are perennial plants and thankfully will re-bloom each season. Another great attribute of having them in any garden. A one-time planting that gives off beauty and herbs for the kitchen.

This recipe is one of the first recipes I developed from my wonderful garden chives. One that convinced me that it was worth it to cut my lovely plant for.

Some of the most simplistic foods have become not just my favorite things to make in my kitchen. But also the most requested meals for me to make for other people. From desserts to soups. I find that it is generally the most unpretentious of foods that catch people’s attention.

A biscuit really is a humble bread-type baked good that can accompany pretty much any meal from breakfast to dinner. True enough they have saved me on days that I didn’t plan ahead of time. This recipe has the added element of chives which at first glance might not seem like much. But I assure you the onion flavor created by the chives makes them something special to serve.

The butter and chive flavors combine perfectly for a dressed-up sort of biscuit that is great to pair with soups, eggs for breakfast, and even served on the side of a dinner salad.

Why I Love These Homemade Chive Biscuits

For years I have made biscuits mostly butter biscuits to be exact. As we all know a biscuit is perfectly delicious when made right. And feel like a treat when we eat them. However, when I add chives into the mix. Literally. Suddenly the plain butter biscuit is all dressed up.

One to be on a nice dinner table or a brunch table. Not that there’s not a place for the plain butter biscuit. But there is something a bit extra about using herbs in our cooking. And the chive flavor is one outstanding flavor to pair with butter in a biscuit. Adding the chives in a touch of extra that is simple to do and makes all the difference.
