Salmon and dill are an amazing flavor pairing! Something about the herbaceous bite of dill perfectly complements the fatty, fishy flavor of salmon. The flavor pairing is great prepared simply (a salmon steak slathered in a buttery dill sauce, for example) but even better in biscuit form. And aren’t stuffed biscuits so fun? So fun. I have a slight addiction to stuffed biscuits, starting with my Bison-Stuffed Black Pepper Biscuits, but these may be my best version yet. They’re almost too good; I ate five in one sitting! Nevermind that smoked salmon is my desert island meat (maybe tied with lamb)… I won’t be making these again until I have a house full of people to help me eat them so I can keep myself in check. 😉

They came out a bit smaller than a biscuit, so I’m calling them “bites”. Give them a try! And don’t hesitate to try a different pairing of meat and herbs. Maybe lamb and rosemary are next? Yummmm!

  7. Repeat with the remainder of the dough.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until the bites are firm and the bottoms are slightly toasted.
  9. Serve warm.

any ideas to replace the egg?

Hmmm, what about flax? I haven’t tried but have read that 1 tbsp of ground flax seed mixed with 3 tbsp of water can be used as the substitute for 1 egg (so double that for this recipe).

Have you ever tried a gelatin egg replacement? I just used Great Lakes (use the red can one for the kind that will solidify.) as an egg substitute in a paleo pigs-in-a-blanket dish. It was my first time using gelatin as an egg, and iIt worked pretty well. It takes some getting used to (you’ll need to google some directions) but all you need is the powder gelatin I mentioned and water.

I’ve made these several times now, with different fillings. It’s a great recipe to have around. 🙂 Certainly makes filling a kid’s lunch box a little easier. 😀
