Lemon Blueberry Biscuits

I love to try new recipes, but I have a problem- I have so many saved, pinned, and printed, I sometimes have a hard time narrowing down what to make!  Having a theme makes it so much easier for me to decide. This month, I'm joining the #BakingBloggers, and we're sharing biscuit and scones recipes.

Poring over my mountain of choices, I thought about what flavors I'm loving right now, and what I have on hand.  We moved 4 blueberry bushes from my parent's property to ours this spring, and while it was a slow year for them, there's been a good amount.

I ended up choosing these Lemon Blueberry Biscuits from Taste of Home.  I had all the ingredients on hand. The only change I made was using Greek yogurt, and I only had a 5.3oz container, so I made up the volume difference with some sour cream.   I used a cookie scoop to portion, and next time I'd probably not. It made them a little more smooth-topped and a tiny bit compacted on the interior.

These disappeared in a flash.  They'd also be great with orange zest/juice. I'm also going to make a version with blackberries, since we have another few weeks worth of those ripening in the yard.  Thanks so much to the Test Kitchen for another family favorite recipe!

Be sure to check out what other bakers are serving up this month, using the links at the bottom of the post.  Big thanks going out to Sue from Palatable Pastime for hosting this month and inviting me to jump in!

Sound like they would go fast in this household too Jolene.
If only we all had time to make every recipe we have stored in our must-make-someday folder! I love that you used sour cream in these too...I have a feeling I'll be doing that more often!

Jealous of your blackberries growing in your yard! These look wonderful and sound delicious.

I bet they disappeared in a flash! They are soooo pretty, and lemon and blueberry need to get married.

I love how much less-fat this recipe is- I am on a scone kick now, so I have to try this!

I love lemon and blueberry together and these sound great - like the idea of yogurt in there.
So jealous, you have blueberry bushes you can go and pick fresh, and they play so well with lemon as well. I wonder how cremé fraiché would go? hmmmm

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
