Low Carb Bacon Breakfast Biscuits
I don’t know about you, but morning is one of the craziest times of day in my house. Getting myself and my family ready for the day and out the door sometimes led to me skipping the meal altogether!
So having healthy grab-and-go options are key for me.
Last year, I came up with one of my family’s favorite recipes: Low Carb Southwest Breakfast Biscuits. Friends, they are so. darn. good!
You’re gonna want to hop over and grab that recipe too.
So, now that you have the original recipe, I’ve got a question for you. Do you like tweaking your favorite recipes?
And if tweaking a recipe isn’t your thing, no worries! I’ve done all the work for you with these tasty keto biscuits.
Inspiration to Change a Recipe
As much as I love all things southwest, I also love me some bacon…
In fact, the only thing better than bacon is bacon with cheese! Am I right?
How about throwing in some caramelized onions too?
In fact, that might just be one of my favorite kinds of burgers… but I digress.
What if I took all those tasty ingredients and made them into a breakfast biscuit? That’s exactly what I did and these Keto Bacon Cheddar Biscuits are the result!
Each biscuit has just 2 grams of net carbs. And 12 grams of protein!
Let’s just jump on in and I’ll show you how I make them and give you some tips along the way. If you don’t want the tips, you can scroll on down to the bottom for the printable recipe!
Tips for Preparation
I like to get everything prepped before I start. First, cook the bacon so it’s nice and crumbly. Some people like doing it on top of their stove, but I’m partial to baking mine.
The best part of baking bacon is it doesn’t require any tending while it cooks! No more grease popping and burning your wrist…
Just put it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake it at 375F until it’s the crispiness your family likes. For these biscuits, get it really crisp and crumbly.
Baking time varies so much based on how thick your bacon is, so I don’t want to give you a cooking time here. I usually wait until I start to smell it, and then keep an eye on it until it’s done. I usually buy thicker bacon and like it crispy, so it takes about 22 minutes for mine to bake.
While the bacon is cooking, chop your onions nice and thin.
Next, saute your onions in a frying pan with 1 Tablespoon of ghee (or butter, or coconut oil)
We’re caramelizing the onions so make sure you let them get nice and browned to get a great sweet and smoky flavor from them.
When the bacon is done, drain it on paper towels, and then crumble it up.
I’m not a fan of getting my hands greasy so I “crumble” mine using a pair of kitchen shears! It makes it so easy!
Get a large mixing bowl and assemble all the dry ingredients. Mix them together well so the baking powder is evenly distributed.
Add the caramelized onions and the bacon to the dry ingredients and toss it all together so that everything is coated.
Beat your eggs and almond milk together in a separate bowl and then add them to your dough. Stir them in until they’re all combined.
Finally, mix in the cheese. The batter will be pretty thick and a little sticky.
Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. This will make sure the biscuits don’t stick to your pan.
Scoop up about 1/4 cup of dough for each biscuit and drop it on the cookie sheet. The biscuits will spread a little bit, so be sure to leave about an inch of room in between. Then bake them at 375F for 15-18 minutes.
The edges will get golden brown and the top becomes slightly firm to the touch.
How to Serve and Store Low Carb Breakfast Biscuits
You can serve your Keto Bacon Cheddar Biscuits straight from the oven. They’re so good when they’re warm! But they’re actually really good at room temperature or even straight from the fridge.
Be sure to store any leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer. I place a layer of parchment paper between layers so they don’t stick together.
To reheat your biscuits, wrap them in a paper towel and reheat from refrigerated about 30 seconds on high power. From frozen, heat 60 seconds at 30% power, then 30 seconds on high.
These Keto Bacon Cheddar Biscuits are also perfect as an appetizer or finger food at your next party! Simply make them smaller and reduce their cooking time to about 10 minutes.

- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Saute onions in 1 Tablespoon of ghee over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until caramelized. Approximately 15-20 minutes.
- While the onions are cooking, in a large mixing bowl, combine the Baking Blend, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and baking powder.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and almond milk until they're light yellow and foamy, set aside.
- Add the caramelized onions and crumbled bacon to the dry ingredients and toss well to coat. Then stir in the egg, and the shredded cheese until all ingredients are wet. The dough will be a little sticky and have the consistency of a drop biscuit.
- Scoop dough onto prepared baking sheets, approximately a 1/4 cup of dough per biscuit. Be sure to leave at least an inch of space around each biscuit.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown. Remove from oven and serve immediately or cool on racks if you plan to freeze the biscuits.
- * If you don’t have THM Baking Blend on hand, you can substitute 1 cup almond flour plus 1 cup coconut flour plus 1 cup golden flax seed meal for a similar texture. The calorie and fat count will increase somewhat with this modification.
