Biscuits with salmon and cream cheese

I love salmon and I love biscuits so I decided to pair them together for our breakfast last week.

So I baked some dill and buttermilk biscuits and then filled them with cream cheese and salmon, they came out delicious.

Ingredients:

For the biscuits:

250 gr strong white flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp salt

115 gr cold butter grated

3 tbs chopped dill

245 gr buttermilk (if you don’t have buttermilk mix 2/3 yogurt with 1/3 milk and you’ll get a good replacement)

2 tbs butter melted

For the filling:

100 gr smoked salmon

1 box Philadelphia cream chesse with chives

juice from 1/2 lemon

some capers around 15 I think I used

1 tbs chopped dill

salt and pepper to taste

rocket salad

Method:

For the biscuits:

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add the grated butter and mix until coated in flour.

Add the dill and the butemilk until you get a sticky dough. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and preheat your oven to 200 grades C.

Form your biscuits in medium sized spheres and brush them with the melted butter.

Bake them for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

For the filling:

Mix the cream cheese with the lemon juice, capers and dill, add salt and pepper to taste.

If you find the filling to be too thick add some sour cream in it. I didn’t because we like it as it is.

Cut your biscuits in 2 put some of the cream cheese on each side of the biscuit (on the inside of course), put some salmon on top of the cream cheese on the bottom half of the biscuit, add some rocket salad and then put the top of the biscuit over it.

You’ll see it looks delicious and also tastes delicious.

I found the recipe on Kevin’s blog and really had to try it. And I think they look pretty similar don’t they? This means I made it :)).

    How many does this make?

      @Pam I guess you can make around 15 biscuits or more – this depends on the size of your biscuits – but I end up with 10 filled up biscuits – you will be needing more of the cheese and salmon if you want to fill up more than 10.
