These Keto Cheddar Cheese Biscuits are a low carb take on a classic Southern staple. And each biscuit has just 1g net carbs.
Today we're going to make a low carb version of the quintessential Southern side: the cheese biscuit, so I thought I'd get us started with the quintessential Southern duo, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash.
The video below is their famous duet called "Jackson". It's about a couple who "got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout" but then the fire went out. Now the husband is threatening to go to Jackson, Mississippi to meet a new lady. But the wife is having none of it.
You can listen to the song in the time it takes to mix up these Keto Cheddar Cheese Biscuits.
But first off, where do biscuits come from?
The first biscuits were probably baked on stones in the Neolithic era. The Romans took up the biscuit, (they called them rusks) and ran with them. But these a small, round cakes of bread really came into their own with the Victorians. The English brought them to America and they changed and grew a little more. And when they made it to the South, they really came into their own.
And the biscuits we are making today have possibly the best biscuit innovation of them all:
Cheese. Delicious Cheddar Cheese.
But are Cheddar Cheese Biscuits low carb?
Most decidedly not. But the Keto Cheddar Cheese Biscuits that we are making today are. They're a mixture of coconut flour, butter, eggs, baking powder, parmesan and cheddar cheese. You bake them up for 15 minutes and soon you'll have a tasty low carb biscuit with only 1g net carb.
It's the perfect snack to take with you when you go to Jackson.
So look out Jackson town.Print
