KETO LOW-CARB CHEDDAR BACON BISCUITS
This Keto Low-Carb Cheddar Bacon Biscuits recipe is so simple you’ll want to make these babies regularly!
I’ve continued to love bread and everything like bread – pies, biscuits, buns, etc.
This dough recipe is high in protein and possesses almost zero carbs. I say “almost” zero, as 1 teaspoon of raw honey used to proof the yeast has 6 grams of carbs. Even if you count the carbs, this is less than .05 grams of carbs per biscuit. And I have read that the yeast eats the sugar, so you don’t need to count the honey at all in your net carbs.
I add the proofed yeast mostly for flavour and moisture. The dough won’t rise a lot (if at all), but the yeast gives you more of that ‘bread’ craving satisfaction. You can always leave out the yeast if desired.
With this basic dough recipe, you can prepare a wide variety of bread, biscuit, and bun combinations, such as:
- Garlic and rosemary
- Italian seasoning
- Herbs de Provence
- Cheese and garlic
If making this recipe, the bacon and cheese, you don’t need to add salt to the dough. The bacon and cheese are both salty.
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB CHEDDAR BACON BISCUITS?
The psyllium husks in the Keto Low-Carb Cheddar Bacon Biscuits not only help to bind the dough, but also contribute super health values. Psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds.
Psyllium is a soluble fiber that contributes immensely to your gut health. As a fiber, it makes bowl movements soft and healthy. It’s also prebiotic. Prebiotic is a substance needed to help probiotic colonies grow in your gut. Adding psyllium to your diet also helps to lower bad cholesterol, lower the risk of heart disease, and lower blood pressure. Besides being good for your heart and blood sugar levels, psyllium may help you lose weight. Because psyllium absorbs liquid in your stomach, it can help give you that feeling of being full. This can help you control the amount of food you eat.
WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO LOW-CARB CHEDDAR BACON BISCUITS?
The predominant taste sensations of these biscuits are fattiness and saltiness from the bacon and cheese. The biscuits are fluffy and flaky, dense, and satisfying.
WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB CHEDDAR BACON BISCUITS?
With the predominant taste sensations of Keto Low-Carb Cheddar Bacon Biscuits being fattiness and saltiness in the biscuits, choose a big, buttery white wine to match. This buttery character will complement the fattiness in the cheese and bacon. The wine’s acidity will nicely offset the saltiness of cheese and bacon. Think Chardonnay. Cheddar also works nicely with red wine. Keep the wine light-bodied to not over power the delicate nature of biscuits in general. Pinot Noir has the acidity to offset the saltiness of cheese and bacon. It also won’t over power biscuits.
*Wine Tips: To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring. Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite. So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.
