I should have category on the blog for failed recipes because I have a few of those too. I would love to tell you to experiment with your seasonings. I love adding rosemary to my breads so I would suggest you try that. You can omit the garlic and onion powder if you do. You can even try a bit of cayenne powder along with parsley. That combination reminds me of the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits. I would like to inspire you to experiment a little. I welcome you to join our Low Carb Inspirations group on Facebook!

We have a supportive environment where we share all sorts of information about our Keto and Low Carb Lifestyles! Spray your pan with non stick cooking spray. I used a muffin tin but you can use any pan you choose. Take a drop and drop a dollop of biscuit batter on your pan.

I also spray my spoon with non stick cooking spray because the dough will slide right off into the pan. I invite you to take a minute to add yourself to our special email list so you can be included in lots of good information such as Recipes, Tips, Printables and Meal Plans!

I substituted some good buttermilk for the sour cream. I baked them in mini muffin cups. The biscuits were the best part of the meal. I used an ice cream scoop and got 16 biscuits for a double batch. I also topped them with shredded cheddar and let them sit in the oven to melt the cheese. I did that after I finished cooking them. They would have stayed vegetarian but I used bacon grease as my cooking oil. I would definitely make these again.

I toss these in with the flour, and drop the dough into 12 jumbo muffin cups. They are double sized, so double the carbs plus the added carbs from the shallot and jalapeno. These make fantastic sausage-biscuit sandwiches I make 3oz. I made these this morning. They are super yummy! I love all of your resources. I pinned two recipes and thought that this one used cream cheese instead of sour cream.

I used 4 oz. I am new to a low carb and Keto diet, but am finally losing weight by following it. I do miss breads, etc.

I put them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet, instead. This allowed them to spead larger, which works for sandwiches, but not too thin. These are just as good or better than the name brand cheddar biscuits. I do have one question. What is the best way to store them? Currently I put a paper napkin in a food storage bag with them to prevent them from getting too soft or hard.

Thank you for such a great recipe. I stored my extras on the countertop too. It lasted 3 days before they were all gone. I would imagine you could put them in the refrigerator too. I would just heat them up for a few seconds before serving them if I did. Thanks so much for sharing.

I loved the flavor on these, and have used them a lot. Just enough flavor from the garlic and onion powder and super fluffy. I will definitely be making these more often. I have been trying to find a good low carb bread recipe and they always end up to eggy. Thank you for this recipe.
