Product Review: Bakesquick Mix from Dixie Carb Counters - Made into a Cheddar Bacon Biscuit

http://www.netrition.com/cgi/goto.cgi?aid=4108


I order most of my healthier ingredients online since you can't find them in regular grocery stores.  My last order was from Netrition and included the Dixie Carb Counters Classic Bakesquick Mix.  I have a couple other 'baking mix' products on hand but I don't care for the soy taste of the mixes (like Carbquik, Bob's Red Mill and similar) so I rarely use them.  While I bought this mix primarily for biscuits, it's an 'all purpose' baking mix and can be used as a breading for low carb fried chicken, pancakes, shortcakes, toppings for pot pies, etc.

I am hyper sensitive to flavors and can taste soy products a mile away, so I decided to make these biscuits into a breakfast biscuit - with bacon and cheddar to mask any of the typical taste you get with low carb baking mixes.  The end result was very good!  

To make a basic biscuit:
1 c Bakesquick Mix
1/2 c warm water
4 T butter
1/3 c cream

Stir just til blended.  Drop dough into mounds on a greased cookie sheet or greased muffin tins.  This will make about 10 mounds using approximately 2 heaping tablespoons batter for each.  Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.  Do not over bake.

For a formed biscuit:
Reduce water by 1 tablespoon.  Hard roll 2" round balls from the dough.  Place on a cookie sheet and press down slightly to a 3" round.

For buttermilk biscuit:
Use 1/3 cup plus 1 T warm water and 1/2 cup butter milk.  This will add an extra half carb per biscuit.

Variations:  Add cooked, crumbled sausage or bacon or grated cheddar cheese to the dough before baking.

From their package:  1 biscuit; total carb = 5 g, minus dietary fiber of 3 g = a total carb per biscuit at 2 g.  0 sugar.
