Cheddar Carbquik Biscuits
|Cheddar Carbquik Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich|
Growing up our Thanksgiving table always had some Pillsbury Grands biscuits to soak up gravy and for impromptu turkey sandwiches. Traditional wheat based recipes are out for keto but that doesn’t mean we can’t make a good biscuit! As you know, I’ve been experimenting with Carbquik recently with recipes like my Bacon Keto Pancakes. Today I decided to try another Carbquik recipe for Cheddar Biscuits! The results were shockingly good and I’m definitely going to make these for the big day next week!
CarbquikStart by measuring out the Carbquik into a large bowl.
Carbquik with ButterThen add the cold, unsalted butter.
Carbquik cut with ButterThe recipe calls for the butter to be cut into the Carbquik until it forms a coarse meal. The easiest way to accomplish this is with two knives and you crisscross them and cut the butter until the chunks of butter get smaller and smaller and coarse groupings form.
Biscuit mixture with CheeseNow add in the garlic powder, salt and cheddar cheese. Mix it all together.
Carbquik DoughAdd the liquid ingredients and mix it all together until a dough forms like above. It wasn’t a particularly doughy dough, a little crumbly.
Cheddar Carbquik Biscuits in Muffin Top PanNow form the dough into equal size balls and bake! I put them in a muffin top pan because I didn’t know how much they would expand. As it turns out they kept almost the same size as the original balls. Also, the original recipe says this makes 10 biscuits but there is no way. Its more like 6 small biscuits or 4 large ones.
Cheddar Carbquik BiscuitsAs you can see, they turned out incredibly well! A nice golden brown outside and a warm and crumbly inside.
Cheddar Carbquik Biscuit with Bacon and EggsThe first day I served them as a side with some bacon and eggs.
Cheddar Carbquik Biscuit Breakfast SandwichThe second day I made breakfast sliders with some sausage, eggs and cheese! These will definitely make the table this year at Thanksgiving!
