These biscuits are so good, everyone will rave about them! 

For those of you who don’t know, there’s a restaurant/ bar located in Charleston, called Jim n Nicks and they’re known for their popular cheesy mini biscuits. 

They serve these little biscuits to everyone at their restaurants as soon as you sit down at one of their tables.  And, we love them. 

So I decided to make them.

This is a simple recipe, anyone can follow. 

All you need is one mixing bowl and a good whisk to combine the ingredients and bake in a 24-mini muffin pan for 8 to 10 minutes.  That’s it!

It doesn’t get any easier than this!

How To Make Cheesy Mini Biscuits…

1.  Spray a 24 “mini” muffin pan with cooking spray. 

2.  In one large mixing bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together.   Then whisk in all wet ingredients to combine.

3.  Stir in the shredded cheese.  Spoon into the mini muffin pan.

4.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown. (full recipe card below)

Cook’s Notes and Tips:

  • I used mild cheddar cheese, but you can use sharp cheddar.  Sharp cheeses will give more flavor.

  • Do not overbake them.  Or they will not be light and fluffy…and they will turn out dry. 

  • Store them in a sealed container or zip-lock bag to keep them fresh for up to one day.

  1. Just fell upon these beauties! I don’t have mini muffin pans, can I use standard size muffin tins? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Donna! I only made these mini biscuits in the “mini” muffin pan, but I am sure you can. If larger in size, I can only guess they will need additional baking time, possibly from 15 to 18 minutes, (haven’t tried them in a normal size muffin pan yet) so you will have to keep an eye on them.
      I hope this helps! πŸ™‚

      Also, if they turned out great – can you come back and let us know? It helps everyone who reads your comment and your outcome. Thanks so much!

  2. Hey thanks! Wow, my husband loves their slaw too. Please send me the recipe- he will be so happy πŸ˜€! The biscuits are best served as soon as they come out of the oven. Enjoy !!

  3. Although I’ve never been to a Jim & Nick’s restaurant, I’ve actually made their recipe for cole slaw which is my favorite slaw recipe! Now I need to try these biscuits too πŸ˜‰ They look wonderful!

    1. Thanks so much Tricia! We wish you a wonderful Christmas as well! All the best in the New Year!!
