Seeded Onion Biscuits

Seeded Onion Biscuits


  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons chilled butter, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup nonfat milk (approximately)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame or sunflower seeds or 1 1/2 teaspoons poppy or caraway seeds


  1. Set aside 1/2 cup onions for topping.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and butter in mixing bowl. Beat until the mixture has a fine, crumbly texture.
  3. Lightly beat in 1/2-cup onions and enough milk (1/2 cup, more or less) to make a soft dough. Do not over-beat or the biscuits will become tough.
  4. Turn dough onto lightly floured board and gently pat into 7-inch square. Cut into 9 equal squares.
  5. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup chopped onion and choice of seeds. Transfer to baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 450 degrees F for 20 minutes or until done.

Yield: 9 biscuits

For best results, eat fresh and hot from the oven.
