Being that the name of this blog is, "No Bun Please," you're probably wondering why I would possibly post another "bread-like" recipe on this blog.
Sometimes you just want a comforting, dense slice of something(?) to serve up your meals with. That's where my Zesty Cheddar Biscuits come into play!
I may not have the bun, but I do know that this website isn't "No Biscuit Please!"
Recently, I was discussing some possible weekend breakfasts with the boyfriend. You know, the ones that take a little more effort and didn't result in just a quick egg scrammble. One recipe that we both missed was a delicious plate of biscuits and gravy.
The gravy part seemed pretty doable, we could just reduce heavy whipping cream down with sage sausage and ta-da! Sausage gravy.
The biscuits, however, were a bit of an issue. Unfortunately, a lot of the lower carb biscuits that are out there have been kind of meh or made with a lower-carb wheat flour. Since wheat is simply not an option for me, I had to try and develop something on my own.
These biscuits are delicious on their own, honestly. They're dense, flavorful, and just a pinch of sweetness from the coconut. Another great feature is that they are extremely filling. Both of us could only finish one before we were stuffed!
As the recipe states, these cheddar biscuits will become even more dense if they are left out for a couple of hours.
They make a great a base for sausage gravy and biscuits (obviously), egg biscuit sandwiches or just slathered with butter. I bet they would be great as Eggs Benedict with a delicious hollandaise sauce.
These cheddar biscuits have even won over the hearts of my non-low carb friends. They liked them more than the Red Lobster rival!
I would assume these would freeze well, but honestly, they never last long enough to attempt!
As always, this recipe is gluten-free, low-carb, keto friendly and even suitable for primal diets!
