While everyone else is baking Christmas sweets, I thought I’d share this recipe for Savory Mustard Dill Twists & Biscuits with y’all today.
You can blame it on the turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving that has my taste buds craving savory foods. Unlike most people, I love my turkey with your everyday yellow mustard instead of gravy.
Mustard has that mild spicy flavor that has my taste buds dancing for joy. Plus, it’s a better option for me than fatty gravy.
With all this mustard eating, I got to craving dill after seeing it in the store.
Dill is one of those herbs that you only really see in the summertime, think Tuna Salad. I love, love, love dill in my Tuna Salad!
So, when I saw dill, something clicked in my head to combine mustard and dill.
Oh, my taste buds were dancing the salsa just thinking about it!
I wanted to make a crispy cracker, but ended up with these twists that resemble a soft bread stick.
They’re not crisp like a cracker, and they don’t snap like a bread stick, which is why I called them Twists and Biscuits. Not as soft as a biscuit in texture, but not snappy either.
Just somewhere in between.
They’re delicious eaten by themselves or you can eat them with a soft cheese spread.
I prefer mine just as they are, especially right after coming out of the oven!
You can enjoy them this Holiday season to help balance out all the sweets. Serve them as appetizers for your guests to snack on at your Christmas or New Year’s Eve party.
You’ll find these Savory Mustard Dill Twists & Biscuits are:
Mustardy (yes that’s a word)
Buttery (even though there’s no butter in them!)
