Herbed Biscuits #recipe @LucyBurdette

LUCY BURDETTE: Lots of baked goods have whopping amounts of sodium hidden in them--in the form of baking powder, baking soda, and salt itself. But sodium watchers shouldn't have to give up everything delicious. These easy biscuits spark up any dinner or even breakfast.


2 cups flour (1/2 cup can be cornmeal or whole wheat)
2 teaspoons sugar
4 teaspoons no-sodium baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
2/3 cup fresh herbs, chopped (I used dill and chives but you are the cook!)
2/3 cup milk

Stir the dry ingredients together, then cut in the herbs and the butter until pea-sized. I use my food processor, but you can use a pastry cutter or even two knives, the old fashioned way. 

Stir in the milk until the ingredients are just mixed. Pat or roll the dough out onto a floured counter and cut into biscuit-sized squares. Settle the biscuits on a baking pan lined with parchment to make clean-up easy.

Bake in a 425 oven until just brown.

Then serve with lots of unsalted butter and honey!

And don't forget (how could you?), KILLER TAKEOUT will be in bookstores of all kinds on April 5, but is available for pre-order today


  1. These sound great! What a nice addition to an Easter meal, too.

    1. they'd be lovely with ham, though that would defeat the low sodium angle:)

    2. But great with crab, which is our Easter go-to. (And New Year's, and occasionally Christmas...I like to mix up tradition!)

  2. Let's see if the comments deal will play nicely now. It wouldn't acknowledge me earlier.
    You continue to grow in your low sodium exploration.
    Well done.

    1. thanks so much Libby! It's kicking and screaming some days:) so I very much appreciate the comment.

  3. Oh my! I cannot wait to make them. Thanks so much, Lucy/Roberta. We are going to have to get serious about sodium soon and this will make it easier.



  4. Good luck with that MJ--it's not easy but hopefully the results will be worth it!

  5. Whoa! The new color on the page here is really nice! I didn't know if I was in the right place! The biscuits look very good!

  6. Thank you for the recipe. These look so delicious! :)

  7. Sounds yummy. What other herb do you think would work? The honey and butter sound just fine!
