Serves: 6 biscuits (1/2 cup seasoning mix)
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


Seasoning:, (recipe follows)
2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons marjoram
2 tablespoons basil
4 teaspoons savory, dried
2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
2 teaspoons rubbed sage
biscuits, (recipe follows)
1/4 cup onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated or 2 tablespoons Romano cheese, grated

Combine seasoning mix ingredients. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place. For biscuits, saute 1 tablespoon mix and onion in 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet until onion is tender; set aside. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Combine egg, milk and onion mixture; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10-15 times. Roll to 3/4-in. thickness; cut with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Melt remaining butter; brush over biscuits. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown.

Note: Seasoning mix is enough for eight batches of biscuits. It may also be used on chicken, pork, beef and steamed vegetables.
