Favorite CarbQuik Recipes?

OK, so my Carbquik just arrived, and I'm looking through all of the yummy sounding recipes. WHERE to START?!?

For those of you who have been using the Carbquik, would you mind sharing a few of your favorite recipes, and perhaps some hints that you've learned along the way? Hopefully that will get me moving in the right direction.

TIA

Hello there,

I've tried a few recipes and all were very good. Cheddar bay biscuits were good with lc chili; impossible cheesecake and Erin's blueberry and peach pies are divine. These pies are simple to make. Turkey (chicken) pot pie was wolfed down in a hurry lol

Can't wait for my next order to be shipped to try other recipes. Enjoy!!

Thanks PaminNY for the nod to my pies!

I second Motts Landing on the Cornbread and I have also enjoyed the Cheddar Cheese Biscuits.

I just made Linda Sue's oven baked chicken with carbquick and it turned out pretty good. Nice crust and very easy using bone in chicken.

Thanks for the input! I made a 'sgetti squash casserole last night, and decided to try the cheddar bay biscuit recipe....quite nice, I must say. Now I'm looking forward to trying some of the dessert recipes this weekend. Has anyone tried the brownie recipe that's on the box? It sure sounds good!

My children (the younger one is not even doing LC) love the pizza crust on the back of the box. I don't follow their topping suggestions, as I do pepperoni and mozzerella of course because it's the only kind they'll eat, but my DH and I like it too. It makes a perfect size crust for 4! Don't expect it to be like regular pizza crust though, as it is just a vehicle to get the good stuff in your mouth!

I love their cheese biscuits.

I also made them without the cheese or seasonings the other morning, and doubled the butter. I rolled them out using Carbquik on the board and cut them into rounds and baked. Very much like Bisquick biscuits, and great with sausage gravy for breakfast!

I've also made the Impossible Taco Pie from the Carbquik recipes threads and we love it.

And I've made two kinds of cookies, I may also have gotten both those on the same thread - a cream cheese based one, and a gingersnap. Both were good.

I just ordered 3 more 3 # boxes!

I agree with the tip on using unsalted butter, I use unsalted butter in all Carbquik recipes. Carbquik is salty enough!

I'd like to find out which brownie recipe you're using. Is it the one on the box?

One of my favorite Carbquik recipes, and I've made it twice now is the "Chocolate Chunk Scones". That recipe is in the huge Carbquck post. They're very, very yummy!

I'd also like to ask, and this is OT, how does one reply with a quote and have the author's name in the quote. I haven't found any info on that in the FAQ's and I haven't been able to figure it out yet.

Nancy, look down in the bottom right-hand corner of the person's post that you want to quote. You'll see "quote" in orange. Click on that and it will paste that person's complete message in a reply box. You can edit and remove parts of their message, but don't mess with the bits in brackets. Those codes are necessary for making it view properly.

I ALREADY love this thread! LOL! Being able to include a baking mix into "the mix" is certainly "stirring" things up a little! (Sorry for the puns, but they were JUST RIGHT THERE! LOL!)

CARBQUICK CORN DOG BATTER

OKAY LOW CARBERS! We need to get this thread going strong again!

I have been on a hunt for a good corn dog recipe to use with Carbquick. I also didn't want to fry them. This worked VERY well for me, so please give it a try and let me know what you think:

CARBQUICK CORN DOGS

1 Corn Pone Pan or something else that works for you (See pic)
1 Pkg Hot Dogs (or Smoked Dogs which I prefer)
3T Matha White Self-Rising White Cornmeal (with hot rize)
1c Carbquick
1 Large Egg
1/8c Splenda (or up to 1/4c if you like it sweeter)
1/2c Half and Half
1/4c UNSALTED butter (Carbquick is salty enough)

Mix all ingredients together.

Ok, spray your pan very well with PAM cooking spray.
Put a layer of batter into the well of each well in the pan.
Lay your dog on top of the batter.
Cover the dog with more batter.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 mins or golden brown (time may vary)
Carefull turn out onto a plate to cool.
EAT AND ENJOY!!!

SERVES 8 (1 corndog each)

The carb count (minus whatever dog you choose) is as follows. Please add the carbs in your dog of choice to my total for the batter to get your count:

4.3 Carbs per Corn Dog (For batter alone)



I have pics of the finished product but can't figure out how to load them. I will work on that and get back with you. If anyone knows how to post uploaded pics - let's me know.

My favorite Carbquick recipe is Nancy's Ritzy Crackers. They're actually mostly almond flour but the relatively small amount of Carbquick does nice flaky happy things to the texture.(The easiest place to find the recipe is on Linda Sue's site, I think.) I add a good teaspoon of butter or similar flavoring to the recipe and don't usually have any sesame seeds. Should also probably say that I rarely make these because I cannot for the life of me just eat a few. . . !

Oh, and anymore I refrigerate the dough for 20 minutes or so, roll it into a log, slice it into rounds as if I was making cookies, place on parchment lined baking sheet, and bake.

Mmmm. I'm tempted to dig around in my freezer and see if there's any Carbquick left in there. . .

SOUNDS WONDERFUL KALATRAZA!!!
I just hunted the recipe down and can't wait to try it. Here it is for any interested:

NANCY'S RITZY CRACKERS
3/4 cup almond flour, 3 ounces
1/4 cup Carbquik bake mix
2 teaspoons granular Splenda or 2 drops Sweetzfree *
1 egg white
3/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons untoasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons butter, softened

Mix all ingredients well in a small bowl. Chill dough about 30 minutes. Drop dough by 1/4 teaspoons onto a parchment-lined 12x17" baking sheet making 24 little piles leaving at least an inch between them. Pick the pieces of dough up one at a time and very gently roll into balls. Cover the dough with plastic wrap (you can use a small piece and move it around as needed) and take a baking powder can, that has about an 1/8" rim around the bottom, and press down firmly over each ball of dough. Be sure to press all the way down to the baking sheet. Peel off the plastic wrap and repeat until all the crackers have been shaped. Prick them with a fork.

Bake at 325º for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. After 15 minutes, check them every couple minutes to make sure they don't get too brown. Cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature or freeze for longer storage.

Makes 24 crackers
Can be frozen

* Add 1/2 carb per 2 crackers if using granular Splenda.

Per 2 Crackers: 59 Calories; 5g Fat; 2g Protein; 2g Carbohydrate; 1.5g Dietary Fiber; .5g Net Carbs

The recipe looks really declicious Buttoni. THANKS FOR SHARING! Where were you getting the "Jennifer Eloff Gluten-Free Bake Mix?" Grocery or on-line?

Here's the recipe for those interested:

FLUFFY BISCUITS

I kid you not, these are hands down the lightest, fluffiest, best biscuit I’ve made in 40 years! And man, my husband will tell ya, I’ve been trying to find a good biscuit recipe for the entire time I’ve been married!!! Who would have ever thought the best would end up being a low-carb recipe?! My inspiration was Jennifer Eloff’s focaccia bread recipe, which I tweaked a bit. I just made the resulting batter into drop biscuits and man were they good! These are not suitable until the grains rung of OWL because of the CarbQuick (has wheat and soy). If you use all almond flour and no CarbQuick, they would be OK for OWL nuts & seeds rung, but still not suitable for Induction.

INGREDIENTS:

4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
½ c. Jennifer Eloff Gluten-Free bake mix
¼ c. CarbQuick bake mix
1 T. Parmesan Cheese, grated
½ c. Monterey Jack Cheese, grated
½ tsp. each baking powder and baking soda
dash salt
1 T. olive oil

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350º. Soften cream cheese and beat in the eggs. Add all remaining ingredients and beat well. Dip onto parchment lined baking sheet, forming 9 large drop biscuits. Pop into preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until nicely browned.

NUTRITIONAL INFO: Makes 9 large biscuits, each containing:

134.5 calories
11.9 g fat
4.04 g carbs, 2.04 g fiber, 2.0 NET CARBS
7.56 g protein
199 mg sodium

Thanks, Watcher. Yes,Ratcat, I just make her recipe up scratch and keep some in a canister in my pantry. I've tried several of her bake mix recipes and you can't go wrong with them! When I was still consuming Carbquick, I found a blend of Jen's mixes WITH the Carbquick got rid of the Carbquick taste I don't care for. Not sure why/how, but a combination just seemed to hide that off CQ taste for me.

Thanks Buttoni and Watcher! I appreciate the help with this. I had no idea you can make your own low-carb bake mix! Great info!
