In my last blog for Crab Pie, CRAB PIE (KETO FRIENDLY) I mentioned that I needed to cut out white flour, and sugar. I never realized just how much I loved it until trying to get rid of it. I’m not suggesting that you do. I am letting you know, that there are good alternatives.
Both my husband and I love the sausage and cheese biscuit from Hardee’s. We have them maybe, two or three times a year. We’re smart enough to know they aren’t good for us. They are extremely tasty, and filling. After eating one though, I feel like somebody dropped a flour bomb in my gut. Not so good!!!!
I am trying to use almond and coconut flour as a substitute. Is it challenging? Uhh, heck yes!!! But I’m making adjustments slowly. This one rivals our fast food biscuit. I am serious; this was some tasty breakfast. It was so good I felt like I was cheating. And furthermore, they were so easy to make.
You will need small mason jar rings; eight of them to be exact. They are easily found in most department and hardware stores. They are very inexpensive and can be reused again. The other equipment you need is a blender, a sheet pan, olive oil spray, and non-stick aluminum foil.
You line your sheet pan with the non-stick foil. Place the rings on top and spray the inside of them with your cooking spray. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all of the ingredients in your blender and pour into the rings! Approximately 2 tablespoons per ring. Put in the oven and bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned and set. All ovens vary, so just watch yours closely the first time.
Let them sit in the rings for about 10 minutes to cool slightly. Take a sharp knife and gently go around the edge to help release the biscuit. Turn upside down and gently push them out of the ring.
Be prepared to be AMAZED! These are truly as good as my Hardee’s biscuit. In fact better, because there is no white flour, no sugar, and little carbohydrates. 2 biscuits make one serving. I can not even tell you how happy these little gems have made me today!!!!!
