Sharon's StoryIf it says "bacon", most of us want to eat it! With a change from pork to turkey, you can still have "bacon" in your meal plan, without worrying about the fat content as much. This recipe is from the Cooking Light Cookbook of 1994.
vegetable cooking spray
1 1/4 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
ground red pepper (optional)
margarine, butter, or other replacement (like a soy brand)
turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
plus 2 1/2 tbs. nonfat or lowfat buttermilk
1Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray.
2Combine flour, cornmeal brown sugar, and red pepper, if using, in a medium bowl; cut in margarine, butter, or other replacement, with a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Cook, drain, and chop turkey bacon. Add in bacon. Then, add buttermilk, stirring with a fork, just until dry ingredients are moistened.
3Sprinkle the 2 tsps. flour evenly over work surface. Turn dough out onto floured surface, and knead 8 to 10 times. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness; cut into rounds with a 2 inch biscuit cutter.
4Place biscuit rounds on prepared baking sheet. Bake 14 minutes, or until biscuits are golden. Serve warm. Makes 15 biscuits.
