I'm so happy...I took a recipe for low carb biscuits I found and revised it. What came about was a biscuit that I can now have eggs and biscuits or sausage biscuits or biscuits and cream gravy with in the mornings- :yay: :yay: :yay:

So, gotta share:

Low Carb Biscuits-(1 carb per biscuit)

1 cup Atkins Baking mix
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tablespoons veg. oil
2 eggs beaten
4 ounces heavy cream
3 tsp. Splenda
All purpose flour for dusting
Butter, to spread over the tops of the biscuits

In a large bowl, mix the Atkins Baking Mix with the baking powder. In another bowl combine the veg. oil, eggs, heavy cream and splenda together. Pour a little at a time the egg mixture, stirring to blend all of the ingredients. Gather the dough together and dust your flat surface with flour. Knead a few minutes. Flatten and using a biscuit cutter* cut the biscuits out and place on a lightly greased-(unless using a non-stick baking pan)-pan. Bake at 350 degrees 15 to 20 minutes until brown. Spread butter on top of the biscuits.

* An easy biscuit cutter is to take an empty can and punch holes at the top. Flour the inside to use.

Here is a recipe I found on the net...we're not allowed to post other sites on here so I hope the person who posted it on the other site doesn't see this and get upset...

Sausage Gravy for Biscuits

Sausage Gravy: -
1/2 roll sausage meat
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup water -- -if needed
salt and pepper -- to taste

Crumble sausage into a saucepan and brown/cook all the way through. Add seasonings and cream. Bring to a boil to thicken. If it gets too thick –add some water as needed.

4 carbs per serving.

Hope this helps!!!

Sorry it took so long to respond...I can't find the site I found that gravy off of...sorry. I've been looking for it. But, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out because the sausage is zero carbs and the heavy cream can be calculated.

Sorry wish I could find it! But, it's still low carb so that's the good news!!!

I'm gonna have biscuits and sugar-free lc syrup tomorrow for breakfast...WOOHOO!!!

I made these last night to go w/ one of my "experiments" and they were awful....I checked and I made them as instructed. Could it be the mix? I waited to buy the "Quick Quisene" (sp) 'cause I had heard it was much better than the first version. This was the first thing I made w/ it. I hope it isn't, I don't need a canister of expensive stuff sitting in my cupboard....

It's not going to taste like regular biscuits, but it'll do. The Atkins baking Mix is the kind you're to use. The biscuits won't taste like regular biscuits but you can still eat these with eggs and sausages, gravy and syrup and won't feel deprived.

I made these yesterday and my batter ended up really runny. Not sure if I did something wrong or not, so I experimented with it a little. I added 1/2 cup of almond flour, a tablespoon of flax meal, and 2 scoops of vanilla shake mix. It made 14 biscuits with a carb count of 1.7g after fiber. They had a nutty taste with a corn bread texture and were very satisfying. DH loved them and suggested them for strawberry shortcake. I intend to play with the recipe to try to lower the carb count.

how large do you make your biscuits? 1" across? 2" across? I was just wondering what size of biscuit gives the 1 carb.

Made them today, went great with sausage gravy! Tastes more like johnny cakes, but I like johnny cakes=) I went drop biscuit style and made 10, with a net carb count of 2 per biscuit.

Might try to sub some vital wheat gluten for some of the atkins mix and see what happens next time.

Thanks for the recipe!
