This paleo savory biscuit recipe is from Lela Buttery, author of We Can Do Butter. According to Lela: “This recipe is a play on a breakfast biscuit I grew up with. Being from the South where anything is acceptable when served on a biscuit — from bacon, eggs and cheese to fried chicken — I attempted to reinvent a healthy paleo rendition of this nostalgic breakfast staple.”

How to Create Your Savory Mix

This is one example of a savory recipe. Use this idea as a “building block” by replacing or substituting proteins, vegetables, and herbs. A few examples: chicken, apple, and rosemary; sausage, sage and carrots; buffalo sausage and broccoli; lamb, rosemary, and sweet potato.

Green Eggs and Ham

  • 1/2lb bacon seared soft (reserve rendered fat for the biscuit)
  • 1/2 leek, cut into thumb sized pieces
  • 1 small bunch of basil (1-2 sprigs)

In a food processor pulse leeks, then add basil and bacon. Use mixture as needed for your savory paleo biscuit.

He graduated from UCLA with a BA in philosophy as well as a degree from the Southern California School of Culinary Arts, and feels food is one of the most important parts of a life - it can nourish, heal, and bring people together.

Michael believes health and well-being are as much a state of mind as they are a state of the body, and when it comes to fitness, food, and life in general, he thinks slow is much better than fast (most of the time). Stopping regularly to examine things is the surest way to put down roots and grow.

He knows he will never be done with his own work, and believes the best thing you can do for your well-being starts with loving and working from what you’ve got right now.
