Keto Biscuits w/ Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese

Intro - Grocery List - Directions - Macronutrients - Leftovers and Meal Prep

A delicious sandwich is always good to have in your recipe arsenal for an on-the-go meal. Many keto-friendly sandwiches opt to use romaine lettuce or peppers as a replacement “bread,” but this doesn’t always feel as filling. To better satisfy your hunger, a keto friendly biscuit made with almond flour serves as a great substitute to high carb bread. 

The following recipe for Cheesy Keto Biscuits with Smoked Salmon and cheese also combines smoky flavors from salmon and bacon with the fresh crispness of lettuce and tomatoes to create a flavorful and rich sandwich.

Smoked salmon is a great source of the essential omega-3 fats EPA and DHA which promote heart health, decrease inflammation, reduce cancer risk, and improve eye health.

This recipe is simple to make, and is versatile enough to be eaten at any meal of the day. Many of the ingredients for this sandwich may already be a part of your keto kitchen.

Components

Your kitchen will require the following

  • Parchment paper
  • Large bowl (1)
  • Small bowl (1)
  • Whisk
  • Wooden spoon
  • Baking Sheet
  • Knife

Directions

To make this recipe, you’re going to mix and bake the biscuits before assembling the complete sandwich. You will want to allow the biscuits to cool before adding the toppings. The biscuits can be made right before assembly, but are also able to be made in advance and stored for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator (longer if frozen).

Here are the complete cooking instructions:

For the Cheesy Keto Biscuits (this recipe makes 4 biscuits)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line one baking sheet with parchment paper. While the oven is preheating, proceed to step 2.
  2. In a large bowl, add almond flour, shredded cheese, and baking powder, then stir until ingredients are evenly mixed together
  3. In a separate bowl, crack one egg and whisk until the yolk and white are combined. Once combined, add heavy cream to egg and whisk until mixture is uniform and smooth.
  4. Make a hole in the center of the flour and cheese mixture, then pour in the whipped egg and cream.
  5. Combine all ingredients together using a wooden spoon or whisk, making sure that no dry areas are left in the dough.
  6. With your hands, scoop and form dough to make dough balls and place on baking sheet. If you find that the dough tends to stick onto your hands, try moistening your hands with cold water or rubbing some oil onto your hands to reduce stickiness.
  7. Once your dough balls are on your baking sheet and the oven is at 350F, bake for 15 minutes until crispy.
  8. Let biscuits stand for 3-5 minutes before eating or using in the second half of this recipe

For Cheesy Keto Biscuits with Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese

  1. Take each biscuit and cut them in half
  2. Spread 1tbsp of cream cheese on each biscuit
  3. Put 2 oz of smoked salmon on each biscuit
  4. Finish assembly by adding 1/4 avocado, 1 piece of bacon, 1 lettuce leaf, and 1 slice of tomato to each biscuit to make a sandwich

Leftovers and Meal Prep

This keto biscuit sandwich is easy to prep ahead of time and take on the go. This recipe makes four biscuits but can easily be made in bulk for a week’s worth of meals. Or you can make the dough and freeze for when you are craving a sandwich.

If making ahead, add the cream cheese and avocado right before serving to prevent the biscuit sandwiches from getting soggy. Any extra biscuits can be used as a side with other weekly meals.

If making these for a keto-family, making this recipe in bulk is recommended in order to have seconds available or leftovers for the next day.
