Coconut Flour Bacon Biscuits

These are scrumptious served with hearty soup or saucy crock-pot dinner.  They taste like bacon and eggs – try adding mushrooms or peppers (spinach?) to the onion when you sauté… Decadent breakfast on the go.  Oh my.

1/2 cup onion, diced

1 cup raw bacon, sliced crossways into bits (1/2 cup cooked bacon)

reserved bacon drippings + coconut oil or unsalted butter to make 1/2 cup

8 eggs

2/3 cup coconut flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (optional)

Slice partially frozen bacon cross-ways to make bits and brown it on medium-high in a skillet.  When the bacon is almost done, add the diced onion, reduce heat and cook until the onion is translucent.  Remove from heat, drain the bacon fat into a heat-proof measuring cup and add coconut oil or unsalted butter to bring the volume up to 1/2 a cup.  I just heard the heart-healthy people gasp!

Whisk eggs, bacon, onion and fat together.  Sift coconut flour and soda into a separate container.  Add the cheese to the dry mixture and coat with flour.  Fold together.

Drop by generous spoonfuls on a parchment-lined cookie sheet or into papered muffin tins.

Bake at 400 F for 15 minutes.

Makes about 16 delicious morsels.
