One of my favorite recipe books is Transforming Recipes, and it is meant as a low-carb cookbook with health and fitness in mind. Some of the recipes from the book are on Kiefer’s site, athlete.io, but some aren’t, and the book has a lot of options. The authors actually just put out an ultra low carb dessert recipe book as well, though I haven’t checked it out yet.
But one of the things that I really like from the book is their Ultra Low Carb Cheesy Jalapeno Biscuits as breakfast food. I remove the Jalapeno and onion powder since it is a breakfast food, but goodness it is tasty.
So, the first step is to make your biscuits. I used butter instead of coconut oil, and like i said above, I didn’t put in the jalapeno and onion powder. I also used Dubliner cheese instead of cheddar, and love the flavor it gives. It does use butter and cheese, so this is not hardcore paleo, but for those of us who are a little more realistic, and who can do dairy without issue, it’s a good option. It made 6 biscuits for me, which is enough for myself and some for later.
Now, as for the goodness on the biscuit itself, I do a pound of sausage typically in even portions to go along with these 6 biscuits, which allows for the sausage to stick off the sides like your sausage should. Then I took 4 eggs and 3 egg yolks and did a hard scramble to allow it to sit in the pan and harden. This way I could fold it onto the biscuits for later without little pieces of scrambled egg falling in my lap. These biscuits do form quite well, and rise a little bit, so when you cut through them, they will cut pretty well and be pretty fluffy compared to most paleo biscuits that tend to fall apart on me.
What you don’t see is that i also added some tomato, and you could add some paleo mayo and shredded lettuce for a divine breakfast if you want. My plan is to freeze them like the picture above, with sausage and egg already prepared, and then heat them up on days when I don’t have time or don’t feel like fixing something, kind of like I do with the Ultra Low Carb Pancakes.
