Gluten Free Garlic Cheese BiscuitsSubmitted by: A_HOLOVACS
IntroductionThese light and fluffy drop biscuits whip up in a flash. My neighbors don't know they are gluten free. These are also lower in fat. These light and fluffy drop biscuits whip up in a flash. My neighbors don't know they are gluten free. These are also lower in fat.
1 cup Gluten Free Pantry French Bread mix(See hints)
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons butter or margerine (Smart Balance)
1/2 cup fat free milk
1/2 cup shredded 2% cheddar cheese
1 egg substitute
Mix milk, and egg into mixture with a sturdy spoon and then add cheese . Mixture will absorb moisture and thicken as you stir and become stiff. The mixture will get thick and sticky, the same texture as name-brand normal baking mix biscuits.
Drop by large spoonfuls (about 2 heaping tablespoons) onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 425 F for 10-12 minutes.
Hints and tips:
I use Gluten Free Pantry French Bread mix. The baking blends without the grainy bits give a much better texture.
Do not use a baking mix like Bisquik . They already have fats and dried milk added. Check the label. Guar gum and xanthan gum are ok.
I have substituted different milks, shredded cheeses, and real eggs and the biscuits were fine.
Parmesan or romano can be used. Add it with the dry ingredients. I added a little more milk too, to get the right consistency.
Increase garlic powder to 1 tsp. and use seasoned salt instead and these taste almost like the red lobster biscuits.
Substituting oil for the margerine will result in heavy dense biscuits.
For easy biscuit measure I use a standard metal 2 Tablespoon coffee scoop (NOT a Mr. coffee brand one). they are about 2$ in the supermarket.
