High Protein Cheesy Biscuits
I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite pre-surgery breakfasts was a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese on a Biscuit sandwich from Chick-Fil-A. But the nutritional information that comes with a Chick-Fil-A breakfast sandwich is no longer really within my budget. So, I made my own. And there’s no getting past the deliciousness of this High Protein Cheesy Biscuit!
I love an easy on-the-go breakfast just as much as I love a sit-down-breakfast. But a breakfast sandwich from Chick-Fil-A was always one of my favorite things. I will admit that since my surgery (which is 19 months gone, now), I’ve bought only one sandwich from Chick-Fil-A. After I ate it, I felt gross, bloated, overly full, and guilty. As much as I love their biscuits, it just wasn’t worth it.
I found a post on Facebook about these low carb biscuits, using Carbquick, and I decided it was worth a try. The recipe that I found was almost exactly the same as what was on the back of the Carbquick box, with extra flour (totally unnecessary) and minus the butter. But in my opinion, butter makes biscuits. So I got rid of the flour, added the butter back in (I actually used margarine), threw in some protein powder, and I came out with a delicious biscuit!
Is it quite as delicious as a CFA Biscuit? No. I’ll be honest. It’s not. But….It’s high protein and it’s low carb. And it’s cheesy! Add in an egg, a slice of bacon, or even a bit of avocado, and you’ve got yourself a hell of a breakfast!
How to Make High Protein Cheesy Biscuits
It’s easy! Measure out 2 cups of Carbquick, along with 1 oz of Genepro Protein Powder (or any unflavored protein powder of your choosing), Garlic Powder, and Salt, and mix together. Cut in the butter until it resembles coarse sand. Add the milk and shredded cheese, and mix until it all comes together.
Measure out into 10 equal biscuits on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 450* for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Let cool briefly, slice, add toppings, and enjoy!
