This Vegetable Cobbler with Cheddar Biscuits recipe is a delicious and creamy vegetable dish topped with soft and cheesy cheddar biscuits.
Happy Sunday, you guys! This is my favorite day of the week. I absolutely love love love Sundays!
‘Cept… I truly dislike Sundays once 7 pm rolls around. Suddenly, I’m rushed to get everything done – all the things piled up on the dinner table since Friday – and at that point, I basically hate everyone and everything.
But then, around 9 pm, I’m all like, OH Ok… that wasn’t so bad… but in fact it was!
So is this November-thing really happening? Turkey Day is approaching?? Already!? We’re over a week into November and I’m still in August mode. I already miss Summer…
I also heard that the Polar Vortex is about to reappear … that’s so unfair. Last year during the Polar Vortex we were stuck inside for three days straight. These Blueberry Scones were the only good thing that resulted from that whole ordeal. And a $358.00 charge over at Amazon. I was bored.
VEGETABLE COBBLER: AN EASY VEGETARIAN DINNER IDEA
You see this picture above? This is how we’re going to cure the Vortex blues – with comfort food.
Our 2nd fridge, the one that’s in the garage, is filled with beer and vegetables. What a combo, right? But that’s the way it is. I buy a lot of veggies and some of those beauties have to sleep with the beer.
As I was trying to think of ways to use up some of those veggies, an eggplant and a tomato jumped at me and I couldn’t refuse them. The Vegetable Cobbler was under way.
Usually, when it comes to vegetables, I just throw ’em in the pan and know that the result is never short of greatness. However, eggplant?? Um… eggplant needs a bit of work, don’t you think? It’s a little bitter and kinda boring. But pretty!
Thus, this time around I went just a little overboard with my veggies and topped them with biscuits. Nothing new, I know, but why didn’t I do this sooner? To all my veggies!! This vegetable cobbler stuff is fantastic!
In all honesty, you guys, I couldn’t stop eating this. The first time I made it, I just sat above the stove and ate it straight from the pan. My favorite way to eat just about anything. Dinner plates are so overrated.
Me thinks you need to have this for dinner. It’s warm, it’s comforting, it’s veggie-full and there’s biscuits on top. With cheese.

Really mixed this up with the veg, Used chickpeas, red bell pepper, peas, green peas, baby corn, onion and tomatoes but followed the recipe otherwise. Went down well but probably use more garlic next time or maybe make garlic bread chunks instead of the biscuits. It was also suggested to make Yorkshire pudding and fill with the veg mixture.
So I’m new to this site looking for New & Exciting vegetarian dish ideas – This sounded so good with the exception of hating eggplant 🙁 – so I took the basics and modified a little – Yum Yum Yum – something new to add to the recipe trove, I omitted the eggplant and substituted a medium, firm zucchini, diced, used only 1/2 a medium onion, used Heirloom tomatoes, also added (1) 15 oz can of cooked Lentils rinsed and drained, (1) Cup of roasted corn kernels(I had in freezer and it sounded like a good fit) (1) cup chopped kale – I also added 3/4 tsp of Trader Joes 21 Salute seasoning to the milk mixture – Once everything was cooked and thick I stirred in 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan – made the biscuits as is but used WW Pastry Flour and 4 TBL butter – It was really good and for me as vegetarian dishes go it was a refreshing change of pace – no pastas or rice but had lots of substance. I think there are a lot of other combos that can be done using this basic recipe so Thank you so much for sharing

This dish looks delicious! Just wondering if you can use other vegetables in this, and many add a little chicken or turkey – my husband wants meat!! Thank you!
Yes, absolutely! Use whatever veggies you like. Let me know if you tried it!
I can see this becoming a family favorite.
Love those biscuits! This looks so comforting and delicious. I’m with you about Sunday. I literally slept all day and then started panicking because I didn’t have enough time to get everything done. Ugh!
We have snow in the forecast for next week. I am going to have to add this to our menu – looks so comforting! Pinned!
Oo, love that you put biscuits on this! What a warming dish!
Nice switch up on a sweet cobbler.
This looks amazing! I’m always looking for more ways to use eggplant. Definitely going to make this!
This dish is gorgeous and since I am the biggest eggplant fan I am putting it on the menu asap! Yum!
I love this so much! Can’t wait to make this!
What a clever dish… I am the veggie lover in my house… I would dig in with a big fork. 🙂
I never find eggplant bitter or boring but I do find it difficult to cook until tender. I absolutely love what you did with it here and I have to make this. I love finding great vegetable recipes that I can serve as a main course. And I love topping stews with biscuits so your idea to make this topped with biscuits is fantastic!
