Cheese Biscuits (GF)


Click on the photos to see larger images.  This is a normal dinner plate.  The biscuits are a good size!  

 CHEESE BISCUITS
These taste like biscuits or scones to me, but probably more like biscuits. You decide what they remind you of.  I did try a biscuit at Kentucky Chicken and mine also has that crunchy top and bottom and soft interior.  Their biscuit was not flaky nor are these, but these are tastier and at 3.8 g carbs much lower than the 19 g net carbs of that particular biscuit.  This biscuit recipe was inspired by Peggy Hardaway's biscuits over at Buttoni's Low Carb Recipes.  I made previous attempts but this was my best result to date that I made today. I'm excited to share this recipe with you all.  Hope you like it as much as we do.  I have to confess I had them with butter and honey and a thin slice of Monterey Jack cheese.  Yum!  Reminds me of the days when I was in my twenties and loved white bread and butter with golden syrup and cheese.  Yes, I know, know....LOL  Honey of all the sugars I think has some redeeming qualities.  Heck if it can heal a diabetic sore, then it's got to be good.  Honey lasts for years and nothing grows in it and it doesn't go off.  It is very sad what is happening to our Honey Bees in America.  It seems it is the pesticides killing them.  If our Honey Bees die out, we're in enormous trouble!  Nevertheless honey is sugar and most people who are low-carbing or are diabetic will need to avoid it.  I probably need to avoid it too but once in a while it is a treat.  I don't do it every day.  I prefer to use sugar free jam.

Anyway on a lighter note - you have to try this, Philis, if you are reading!   I know you liked the Focaccia bread. I have this feeling you're going to love the biscuits too.  I also have cheese hamburger buns that I'll share soon.

They look good, Jennifer! I'll have to give them a try!

Hi Peggy! ((HUGS)) Thanks for sharing your recipe. Your recipe was the inspiration for the gluten-free, low-carb one. :) I love how Sherrielee's original recipe seems to have legs of its own. I wonder where she is these days? I know she is an artist and loves painting horses and I think she has them in real life too. However, I wonder if she fell off the wagon as we have not heard from her for years, nor is her website with her recipes available anymore.

And I've been thinking about you lately, Ginny! Tomorrow I'm making your Chicken Broccoli Quiche with Parmesan Topping! It looks so good.

I hope you like it Jennifer! :)

Do you count and then deduct the fiber carbs from your recipes already?

Jennifer said...

Yes, I provide net carbs. Total carbs minus fiber = net carbs. Fiber is not a carbohydrate at all. It should never have been included in the carb count, but unfortunately that's the way the nutritional analysis programs are - the fiber is actually included in the carbohydrate count. The late Dr. Atkins and Dr. Eades said we should subtract it out.

Hi Jennifer! I just "stumbled" across this site a few days ago, went to the health food store and loaded up on baking ingredients. I must say I've been scared of low carb bread since I tried it many years ago and it was not good…..disgusting, actually! I made the cheese biscuits and breakfast hash this morning.....DELICIOUS!!! Thank you for so much sharing your recipes!

Jennifer said...

Sherry, I am so happy you shared this with me. Many times people say they will make a recipe, but then they get busy and they forget... So good to get feedback. Thankful you found my blog and really, really happy you also like the biscuits. I made great Cheese Hamburger Buns yesterday. Will be sharing the recipe this next month so keep an eye open for it. Thanks again! :)

P.S. Did you find them a tad salty? I think one can leave the salt out on account of the Parmesan cheese.
