Smokey’s Soft and Cheesy Low-Carb Sausage Biscuits
When we think of cheesy sausage biscuits, Southern Buttermilk Biscuits made with sausage patties and plenty of carbohydrates come to mind.
However, we have a recipe for a low-carb version, that tastes just as Southern, as Grandma’s homemade biscuits.
Our biscuit dough is very similar to that of our pizza dough used to make Smokey’s Cheesy Pizza.
The only difference is the addition of Carbquik.
The ingredients we purchased were:
- 4 oz. or 1/2 block of Cream Cheese
- 4 Cups + 1/4 Cup of Shredded Cheese of Choice
- 4 Eggs
- 2 Cups of Carbquik
- 1 Pkg. of Sausage (we used Portuguese Sausage)
- 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
We’ll begin by placing our cream cheese in our mixing bowl and will melt in our microwave for 30 seconds.
We’ll then, add our eggs, 2 cups of cheese, pepper, and will stir until fully blended.
Next, we’ll add our Carbquik and will once again, stir until well mixed.
We’ll then, form our dough into a ball and will place on our plate.
Since our muffin pan has room for 12 biscuits, we’ll cut our dough into 12 equal pieces.
We’ll next, spray our muffin tins with our cooking spray and will preheat our oven to 400F degrees.
Now, we’ll roll each piece of dough into a ball and will place them into our muffin cups.
In order to stuff our biscuits with sausage and cheese, we’ll make an indentation into each one, with our thumb.
We’ll then, cut our sausage into thin slices and will insert 2 pieces into each biscuit.
Next, we’ll place 1/2 our remaining shredded cheese on top of our sausage.
Now, we’ll wrap our dough around our sausage and cheese and will pinch the top of each biscuit. This will ensure that our cheese will not escape.
We’ll then, place our biscuits into our oven for 15 minutes or until they have slightly browned.
As the aroma from our soft and cheesy biscuits begin to permeate our apartment, we’ll remove our pans from our oven, salivating. 😋😋
Next, we’ll top our biscuits with our remaining cheese and will re-bake for just a couple of minutes, or until our cheese has melted.
Our soft and cheesy low-carb sausage biscuits are ready for consumption!
Each biscuit is flaky, moist, and delicious! They just fall apart in your mouth, with each bite.
We’ve even added melted butter to our savory biscuits for added flavor.
We were afraid that we were going to finish these biscuits in one setting, but decided to eat in moderation. 😀
So, we placed our leftovers into our refrigerator.
When we decided to eat another, we merely placed our biscuit into our microwave for 30 seconds and they were just as good as freshly baked!
From our kitchen to yours…
We hope you enjoy our scrumptious biscuits.
