We had two really warm days this week. By “really warm,” I mean, 50 degrees in Michigan in January. They were promptly and predictably bookended by several days of snow and freezing temperatures. It’s the kind of weather that makes me think about….well, running away to Tahiti. But also biscuits.
I love biscuits. Pillowy, fluffy, savory biscuits, dripping with butter and all the promise of delicious flavor conveniently transported to my mouth in one hand-sized package. My favorite, of course, is the buttermilk biscuit that I can now make in my sleep, practically. But I’ve been working on other species, if you will, of biscuit.
I came across these delightful little things on the Your Lighter Side blog. They’re healthy, so that takes care of you lot who are still hanging in there with your New Years Resolutions; low carb, so you ketoers can be satisfied; and delicious, which takes care of everybody else, except all of you that I missed.
I wasn’t really sure how these would turn out but they were pretty good. Super quick to pull together, attractive and tasty as heck. I made them for dinner but I’m looking forward to making them again on the weekend and bookending them around some fried bacon and eggs.
I modified the original recipe slightly, by using garlic salt instead of garlic powder and salt, and adding in a quarter cup of grated parmigiano reggiano. Highly recommend.
