Mushroom & Spinach Biscuits

I'm always looking for variety :)


2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
2 mushrooms (I used button but others work), chopped
1/2 cup finely-grated Parmesan cheese
1 stalk green onion, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup shortening (room temperature)
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
3/4 cup milk


Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Sauté mushrooms and onion in olive oil on medium heat. Once mushrooms are cooked, add spinach on top. Fold in spinach and sauté until wilted. Allow to cool, and then squeeze out excess liquid. Mix in Parmesan cheese. Set aside.

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and pepper in a bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture forms fine crumbs. Stir in milk, and then stir in cooled mushroom/spinach mixture. Don't stir too much, just until dough will form a ball. Then knead ball lightly on a floured surface.

Roll dough out to 3/4-inch thick on a floured surface. Cut into large circles. Bake for 15 minutes, until edges turn golden. Transfer biscuits to a rack to cool. Freezes great for future use!
