  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir the onion, Parmesan cheese, and Cheddar cheese into the flour mixture. Pour the buttermilk into the bowl; stir until evenly combined. Drop by 1/4-cupfuls onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops of the biscuits are lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

These were nice, but I think a little more salt and the addition of green onion would greatly improve the overall flavor. The dough baked up nicely and the cheeses were great.

All I have to say is YUM!!! These were fabulous! My kids loved them and are already begging me to make them again!

I used green onions as other reviewers did and I also needed to add an extra splash of milk. I am lactose intolerant and didn't want to buy buttermilk just for this recipe so I put a Tablespoon ...

I loved these and i don't even like biscuits that much! They are cheesy, moist and easy. I used powdered buttermilk with success-I rarely if ever buy fresh. The onion flavor was subtle but th...

Great biscuits.. delicious! The outside had a golden brown crunchiness, and the inside is moist & very tasty! I did not have dried minced onion, so I used dried chives. The name should be change...

These were very good but a little bland. I didn't have dried onion so I took other reviewers advice and used green onion. They came out pretty, but I wonder if that could have been part of the...

This is my first try at drop biscuits without a baking mix. These were very easy to quickly throw together and all the ingredients are things I always have on hand. They took 14 minutes to bake ...
