Fact: Everyone loves biscuits. Right? I mean, even those who might say they don't- it's probably because they think they shouldn't; because biscuits aren't exactly healthy. But deep down.... they love biscuits.
I've gotten a lot of great feedback on my Cauliflower Biscuits with Bacon & Jalapeño recipe, and it's become the #1 post on my blog by far. As much as I love those biscuits-- I do agree with some of the commenters who have compared them to a "jumbo tater tot", "crab cake", or "potato pancake" in terms of texture. Not that any of those are a bad thing; just not exactly like a true biscuit.
These Paleo Drop Biscuits, on the other hand, are 100% homestyle biscuits. They don't taste like they're healthy, or like a Paleo version of a comfort food-- they just taste like biscuits: a lightly sweet & buttery flavor with a crisp outside and soft, moist inside. & Because they are homemade as opposed to a can or a boxed mix, they taste even better than any biscuit I've had.
Try these for breakfast with sausage gravy (see my Biscuits & Gravy Recipe) or spread with a little of my 5 Minute Strawberry Jam. You could also slice them in half to make a breakfast sandwich- or any type of sandwich! These are also perfect for dipping in your favorite soup, chili, or stew.
I love the simple biscuit recipe- but I think adding some 'extras' would be great too... try garlic or chili powder for something savory, or cinnamon & nutmeg for something sweet.
Let me know if you try these out- and tag me in a picture on Instagram if you do! Enjoy!
