Savory Biscuits…

Biscuits baking in the oven...
Cooking and baking are two of my other passions.

I had a craving for fried bannock today for lunch. I learned the recipe from a wonderful elder in Conklin many years ago. She truly was a blessing in my life.

As you can see by the title photo, these are not fried. Damn! Yup, my mind was somewhere else as I mixed up the ingredients.

If you fry the bannock, don’t add any fat. (oil, lard, butter or margarine) As you deep fry it, the bannock picks up as much oil as you need. I wasn’t thinking, (you know, par for the course) and added oil during the mix. No real harm though. I could have simply baked it in the traditional manner, but I decided to cut it into biscuits.

I wanted a savory snack thing. I used white onion, left over farmer sausage, and some very nice “old” cheddar.

Flour, salt garlic powder, baking powder and soda. (This is where I screwed up and added the oil) Mix all this together with other goodies listed above. If you want to fry it, don’t add the oil like I did here.

Mix in some water until it becomes firm enough to form into a ball. I kneed mine slightly and flatten it by hand. I think you’ll get a lighter and fluffier product this way.

450 degrees F about 12 minutes let cool a bit and enjoy pain or with whatever you desire.

I like these with butter. So now I’ll make a soup, and with these tasty little morsels, we’ll have a nice dinner for a cooler day.

These really are simple and quick. From the start to finish… including the clean up and (yup, I ate a bunch) under an hour.

Like I said... add whatever you desire.
