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?

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:
ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.

How do you prepare Keto Low-Carb Cheddar Bacon Biscuits? Here is a few pics to give you the simple instructions.

Preheat the oven to 350F.  In a bowl combine yeast, honey, and water.  Mix well.  Let sit 10 minutes to proof.   In same bowl add dry ingredients and fold together.  In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients . Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and using a spatula, mix well.    Add boiling water and mix well.  Let the dough sit for about 10 minutes so the psyllium absorbs the water and makes the dough drier.   Fold in the bacon and cheese.  Pull dough together with your hands.  If dough is still wet, place in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.   Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.  Using a spoon, scoop about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball.  The ball should be the size of a golf ball.  Place the balls on the parchment paper.  Once you’ve made all the balls the same size, flatten them all into disks.
