Hardee’s Introduces the Cheddar Biscuit

Hardee’s has unveiled the Cheddar Biscuit.  I love Hardee’s biscuits straight up, Chefprotoss likes’em with Country Ham.  The Cheddar Biscuit packs 430 calories and 27 grams of fat with no animal involvement.

Here’s a coupon and the Hardee’s description for the Cheddar Biscuit:

The Cheddar Biscuit consists of two slices of extra sharp, cheddar cheese on our warm and tasty Made from Scratch Biscuit™.

    That’s a pretty popular local thing here in Eastern NC. They usually call it a “hoop cheese biscuit,” though Bojangles calls it the Cheddar-Bo.

  2. Kate says:

    Oh… they just put cheese ON the biscuit. I kind of assumed the cheese was somehow excitingly incorporated.

      That’s what I was thinking when I saw the headline — thought maybe it was a Red Lobster chedder biscuit kind of thing (which would be awesome).

    Are they out of ideas?

  4. Ryan says:

    432 Calories… for that!?!

    I’m not even a calorie watcher on any level, but seriously, that’s crazy for what you get.

  5. Evan says:

    Anyone who thinks this is a bad idea is nuts and hasn’t one. This goes to show how quality their biscuits are. Could McDonalds or Burger King ever sell just a biscuit with cheese on it? Never.

    Man I miss these from my days at North Carolina State. Cheddar Bo Biscuit FTW! Can’t get them anywhere else but eastern NC; luckily Charleston will be sure to have these!

  7. Scott says:

    Hopefully, the cheese had some animal involvement.

    • Ryan says:

      Haha, yeah. Well no dead animal involvement rather. Lots of calories and fat with no bacon or sausage to be found. A bunch of cheesy/buttery goodness still does some damage 🙂

    I don’t think I could ever see myself buying this. I don’t know the price yet though.

  9. Sandy says:

    Yum! Cheese make everything better.

    I love cheese biscuit. But i hegitate to eat such a high 432 Calories.

  11. Ed H says:

    Cheese on a biscuit! Brilliant!

  12. Mike N says:

    By the way, Chefprotoss can probably comment on this better than I can, but in my experience real cheddar doesn’t melt the way as depicted in the pic, but I guess cheddar-flavored cheese food on a biscuit is still a cheddar biscuit… and still pretty tasty sounding. 🙂

    • Chefprotoss says:

      It depends on the age of the cheddar. Younger = more melty =)

      Though even a nice sharp aged cheddar should be good for this application. I wouldn’t want it to be too gooey. I’ll give this a try soon. Depending on the quality of the cheese it looks promising.

    Dang I’d just prefer to butter a biscuit

  14. somesteve says:

    that’s so mind-bogglingly simple yet so unique. wow.

  15. Bob says:

    It looks like a baby chicken idea.

    Cheep!

    I tried one this past weekend. Made it probably 60% through and then noticed the paper was still stuck to one of the pieces of cheese. I’d been eating a waxy paper and cheese biscuit. How appetizing. I got back in the car and went back to the store where the manager tried to soothe my unhappiness by giving me another cheese biscuit. No, lady, I don’t think so. I’ll take the refund.

    What?? No sausage?? for shame!

  18. VanillaLatte11 says:

    I do love Hardee’s biscuits, but BoJangles are nice, too. Bonus about Bo’s? they serve them all day! 😉

  19. Amie says:

    I got two of these today with high expectations… and was sorely disappointed. I couldn’t even finish one. The cheese was so greasy it left a nasty film in my mouth for a couple hours.

    For some reason, as well, the cheddar taste didn’t mix well with the biscuit (and Hardee’s has the best biscuits ever!)… so that’s really saying something.

  20. Jimmy says:

    What happened to the old cheddar and black pepper biscuits from back in the day? The cheese and pepper were blended into the dough before baking best ever!!

    I wish the Country Ham Biscuit would come back, but it’s long gone. The easiest way to get country ham in these parts nowadays is to go to Waffle House.
