Herb and Onion Wheat Biscuits



Introduction

The onion is puréed so that its flavor carries throughout the biscuits. You can make and freeze the biscuits up to a week ahead. When ready to serve, thaw, wrap in foil, and heat in a 325º oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until thoroughly heated. The onion is puréed so that its flavor carries throughout the biscuits.

Ingredients

    Cooking spray
    1 cup chopped onion
    3/4 cup fat-free milk
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon sugar
    1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/4 teaspoon dried basil
    1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°.

Heat a small skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add onion; cook 6 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Spoon onion into a blender. Add milk; process until smooth. Cool.

Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flours and next 5 ingredients (flours through basil) in a large bowl; cut in the butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add onion mixture; stir just until moist. Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface (dough will be sticky), and knead lightly 5 times with floured hands. Roll dough to a 1/2-inch thickness; cut into 10 biscuits with a 3-inch biscuit cutter. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until golden.

Yield: 10 servings (serving size: 1 biscuit)

    Great flavor and texture in a healthy biscuit! Save them of a day or two in the fridge, microwave for 10 seconds and eat with scrambled eggs for breakfast. Yum! - 3/5/07

    Ummm, Good! Instead of the butter, I put 2 Tbsp. olive oil in the blender with milk and onion. I can think of several different herbs to use to go with different entrees. - 5/23/10

    These were super delicious! I actually used chives instead of basil because, for some reason, I love the way onion and chive taste together. And they came out great! - 3/29/09

    Mine needed more milk because they were too dry as written. However, they tasted very good and each biscuit was a significant size for one serving. - 6/8/10
