• 2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 c. wheat germ
  • 1/2 c. non-fat powdered dry milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 8 Tbsp. meat, bacon drippings or margarine
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. beef or chicken broth
  • Crumbled bacon or grated cheese, if desired
  • 1/2 c. or more ice water


In large bowl or food processor container, combine flour, wheat germ, dry milk, salt, garlic powder and brown sugar. Cut in, or process, meat, bacon drippings or margarine into mixture, until mixture is crumbly. Add egg and broth---through feeder tube with machine running, if processor is used--and mix throughly. Add crumbled bacon or grated chhese if desired. Add ice water as needed to form mixture into a ball. If processor is used, add water through feeder tube with machine running, just until mixture leaves the sides of the bowl and starts forming a ball on metal blades. Pat or roll out dough on floured surface to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into bone biscuit shapes(cutters are available in many kitchen stores) or any cookie shape. Place on cookie sheet lined with foil and oiled lightly. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes, or until quite hard and brown at edges. Makes about 18 large biscuits.
