Happy Spring everyone! What a great time of year!
One of the things that I love about this time of year, is that we harvest all of the veggies in our winter garden. This year, we have some beautiful lettuce and spinach, and a bunch of rainbow carrots. Spinach has to be one of my favorite winter veggies, because you can get what you need and it will grow back. Starting in late November through this time of year, we get a steady supply of spinach. I love eating spinach that I just picked, and really enjoy experimenting with it too. Last year I shared my spinach pesto recipe, and this year I started thinking about putting spinach in a biscuit. I love to combine food from my cultures, and have been thinking of a Greek inspired biscuit for some time. It just made sense to make a spinach and feta biscuit. In January, I started working on this recipe, and have made them a few times since. The second time I made these, I forgot to put the crumbled half of the feta cheese in the biscuits. I decided to put it on top of the biscuits, and they turned about even better than the first batch. My daughter called it a happy accident…lol! If you love spinach and feta cheese, you will love these biscuits. The spinach adds a nice background flavor, while the feta cheese adds a punch of flavor. I added a little Monterey Jack cheese for extra creaminess and cheesiness. These biscuits are amazing and perfect for any meal of the day. Pair them with a bowl of tomato soup for lunch or use them as a vehicle for a yummy sandwich. The possibilities are endless.
This is our garden this past January. I loved lifting the cover to find something vibrant and growing underneath.

I am going to bring these Feta and Spinach Biscuits to Fiesta Friday #112! I am so excited, because this is the first time I am attending. Your co-hosts this week are Natalie @ Kitchen, Uncorked and Hilda @ Along The Grapevine.
Yay! This recipe was featured on Fiesta Friday!
- 2 cups all purpose flour (I use unbleached)
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup milk
- 8 oz. feta cheese
- 3 oz. Monterey Jack cheese (optional)
- 1.5 oz. spinach
#1 If you don't have Monterey Jack cheese, you can substitute other mild and creamy cheeses, like a farmer's cheese or Havarti.
#2 Make the flour mixtures ahead of time. I always do this if I am entertaining.
