These Cheesy Mini Biscuits would make a wonderful addition to your meal. 

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.  We love them. 

So I decided to make them.

And, guess what?  I hate to say this, but these taste if not the same, maybe even better than Jim n Nicks cheesy mini biscuits! 

Keep in mind, not every recipe I test turns out great, but this one sure did!

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 10 minutes.  That’s it!

It doesn’t get any easier than this!

Cook’s Notes and Tips:

  • I used mild cheddar cheese, but you can use sharp cheddar.

  • Do not over bake them.  Or they will not be light and fluffy and even turn out dry. 

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



Best of all, this recipe makes enough to serve a crowd.  Serve them with our London Broil Steak Grilled to Perfection, or with our Oven Roasted Brisket or our Easy Vegetarian Chili. 

These cheesy mini biscuits Jim n Nicks copycat will make the perfect addition to your breakfast, brunch, or dinner.  I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a warm cheesy biscuit with a meal?  …I know I do!

Serve these delicious cheesy mini biscuits warm with our tri-color butter terrine and your favorite sweet jams on the side and watch them disappear!
