1 tablespoon eggbeaters, half for brushing (8 calories)
1 tablespoon cold water , for brushing
1/4 cup ground turkey sausage (about 65 calories)
Seasoning of choice. I used flavor god’s “Everything Seasoning,” but if you don’t have it, consider salt, black pepper, thyme, sage, cayenne, garlic powder, ground cloves, nutmeg and allspice.
1/4 cup 2% cheddar cheese (80 calories)
Optional: 3 tablespoons eggbeaters or eggwhites, scrambled (25 calories)
Servings Per Recipe: 1. Calories Per Serving: 322 – 347.
Preheat oven to 400F.
If turkey has not yet been cooked, mix wet meat with seasoning mixture.
In a non-stick, medium-sized pan, cook 1/4 cup ground turkey sausage (lathered in seasoning) over medium/high heat. You can add in 1 teaspoon of coconut oil if desired to brown the turkey.
Chop up turkey along the way, cooking until meat is no longer pink and has browned fully. Set aside.
In a separate skillet, scramble eggs (if desired). Set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all dry ingredients for your biscuit.
Add wet ingredients for biscuit dough into dry ingredients, one-by-one (excluding 1/2 tablespoon of eggbeaters and water for brushing), stirring until all ingredients have been mixed, but not over mixed. Clumpy dough is desired in this situation in order to create those pretty biscuit crumbles.
Using your hand, work crumbles of dough into an unevenly shaped ball.
Using your thumb, press a hole in the dough and begin to hollow it out so that it resembles a bowl.
Stuff dough with ground turkey, egg (if desired), and cheddar cheese.
Close up dough so that it forms a ball again.
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 tablespoon of eggbeaters and water, mixing well.
Brush the top of your biscuit with egg/water mixture.
Place biscuit on a sheet of parchment paper, which is then to be placed on an oven-safe tray, and stick in the oven.
Bake for approximately 12 – 15 minutes, or until the top of your dough is a pretty, golden-brown color. Stick a toothpick through the center of the dough and assess for wet batter. If no wet batter appears, your dough is done. Continue cooking if not yet complete, and check with the toothpick test several times until ready to serve.
Remove from the oven and enjoy while it’s hot!
Note: you may consider rubbing your biscuit with 1 teaspoon of honey-butter (3 parts butter, 1 part honey). It’s delicious!
