I recently made a thick hearty soup with turkey, sweet potatoes, and barley – such a great source of veggies and fiber. It seemed to call out for an herb-y bread such as this. The fact that the recipe called for almost of cup of Parmesan cheese sealed the deal. Parmesan Herb Biscuits (Muffins) are just the thing to serve along side any meal, ideal with soup or salad. I edited the recipe a bit based on the herbs I had on hand. You can do the same, substituting dried or fresh with this ratio, 1 part dried herbs = 3 parts fresh herbs.
I have to thank fellow Americans in Poznan, Joan and David, for sharing this recipe. We began reading David’s blog about their life in Poznan as soon as we knew we’d be relocation to the same city. It was interesting to read about their days life, the weather, and starting thing about the time difference between our home in the States and our new home in Poland.
