Low Carb Cheddar Tuna Biscuits w/Creamy Spread

low carb bread recipesI’ve mentioned before that my low carb bread recipe is extremely versatile. Last week I used this base in a low carb biscuit recipe – which was GREAT!

Last night I decided to try a new twist, with tuna and cheddar. It turned out absolutely delicious. :D What a nice filling treat, and a very tasty way to enjoy Laughing Cow Cheese Spread, which is my newest low carb food addiction! lol.

Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal / FlourThis is super simple to make:

Ingredients:
1 Cup Almond Meal/Flour (12 Net Carbs)
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese (4 Net Carbs)
1 Can of Tuna
2 Eggs
2 Tablespoons Butter, melted
Garlic Salt to taste

If you’re eating for one you may want to cut this recipe in half. I used about 1/3 of the batter (around 5 net carbs) to make 5 pieces, so it comes out to around 1 net carb per piece, give or take depending on the size of your pieces.

As I’ve mentioned before, you can add any variations of ingredients or seasonings. I often add chopped or creamed spinach for example. (The garlic salt was PERFECT in this combination!)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread parchment paper on a baking sheet (best to do this now, before your hands get messy, lol). Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix well:

I just use my hands to mix it up good. Tip: Wash your hands first. ;-) And definitely after, lol.

Next you’ll spoon out the batter onto the parchment paper. I often shape them with my hands since they’re already messy, but this was a thicker mixture and I spooned it out and shaped them round and flat with a spoon:

Unlike my cheesy low carb biscuits with spinach, bacon & mushrooms – these were a bit more dry. Not TOO dry, just dryER. On my next attempt I may add whipped cream cheese to see if they come out slightly better. Although they were pretty darn good as is!

I baked them at 350, and just kept an eye on them until they were nice and browned – flipping them once to brown both sides:

Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Wedges

I made them flat like thick crackers, and spread Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Wedges on them.

I used 1/3 to 1/2 a wedge of the creamy swiss on each “biscuit”.

OMG. DELICIOUS. :D

When you want something hearty, filling AND low carb – without having to cook an entire meal – this “10 minute fix” is just plain perfect! ;-)

I absolutely love this “recipe” because you can throw just about anything you have on hand in the bowl, and make a yummy low carb “bread” out of it.

I mentioned I made five pieces, which were small enough to fit in the palm of my hand. And that TOTALLY filled me up. -Enjoy!!

    You should also mention gluten-free in your headlines, Lynn. I haven’t even looked at your low carb bread recipe because I assumed it used traditional flour. Being a big tuna fan, I had to take a look at this post and was surprised to see the pic of almond flourI So exciting! I can’t wait to try this!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Good point, Bridgett. All of my low carb bread & cookie recipes are also Gluten Free. :D I’m having these again for breakfast this morning. That whole batch probably made a good 3-4 servings of 4-5 large pieces each lol. I’ll be eating it for lunch too I guess. ;-) ha. *cheers*

    Hey! I’m so glad that I stumbled into your website…. Can’t wait to try your recipes…. One thing:::: I’m allergic to all artificial sugars even stevia and Splenda … Sad! If your recipe requires sugar, what should I do? Use raw sugar? It has 4 carbs per teaspoon.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Susan! The recipe doesn’t require any sugar. :D Even on my low carb cookies, I don’t like them very sweet so I generally just use vanilla extract and cinnamon – sometimes a tablespoon of sugar free vanilla syrup – but you can leave anything out you don’t want to use. But this recipe – the bread, biscuits, etc – have no sweetener at all in them. Enjoy!

    OMG, these were soooo good!!!! I forgot about the cheese on top-lol.

    I plan to make them tomorrow with chicken-I beleive these can be frozen and would be good to make ahead!!!
    cant thank you enough for a wonderful recipe with many variations possible!!!

    Just wanted to tell you that I tried your Low-Carb Tuna Biscuits with Creamy Cheese my way; I added a can of chicken and used cream cheese. I also used soy flour as I haven’t yet received my almond flour yet. They were awesome! Thanks for the idea.
