Chive Pepper Biscuit Sandwich

“I received free samples of Sabra Spreads mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.”

As a food blogger and recipe developer, I was invited by The Recipe Redux team to participate in a recipe contest using Sabra’s new “Spreads” to recreate a sandwich.

Play with your food

I’ve heard that most people have 5-10 meals in their dinner rotation. Not true for me! I like to see what’s new at the grocery store. I bring home food souvenirs. I play with my food. That includes learning about new products and sharing them with my readers. So being able to try out the new spreads is right up my alley.sabraspreadsSabra is a brand known for a variety of refrigerated hummus and guacamole. Now they are expanding into flavored hummus-based sandwich spreads, such as Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper, Honey Mustard, and Garlic & Herb. I tried all three flavors and liked them all. (I’m saving the cute sandwich container they sent for when I need to tote something to an office.) 😉

Sabra Spread Facts

  • Like hummus, the spreads are made with fresh ingredients such as chickpeas and tahini.
  • The squeeze bottle makes them easy to use.
  • Like mayonnaise, Sabra Spreads are creamy, making them easy to combine with other ingredients. But they have about 75 percent less fat that regular mayo.

A breakfast sandwich?

I was going to call this a breakfast sandwich, but we found the sandwiches weren’t clock watchers. Biscuits for lunch? Yes, please.

Chive Pepper Biscuit Sandwich

In this biscuit recipe I added the Garlic & Herb Spread to the biscuit dough. An additional squirt on the sandwich adds a zesty flavor boost. Biscuits were a winner…a dinner winner! No fast food wrapper required!


See what you think. Breakfast, lunch or dinner?

  • Author: Judy Barbe
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 12 biscuits 1x


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus a teaspoon or two
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons Garlic & Herb Sabra Spread, plus 1 teaspoon per sandwich
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives (green onions may be substituted)
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg per sandwich
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 slice Cheddar cheese per sandwich


  1. Stir together 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt in food processor. Pulse 3 to 4 times to blend ingredients. Add butter. Pulse 5 to 6 times.
  2. Pour ingredients into large bowl. Pour milk, Sabra Spread, chives and pepper. Stir together with a fork until the ingredients form into a rough ball.
  3. Sprinkle a teaspoon or two of flour onto a clean surface or silicon mat. Knead dough a couple of times to mix ingredients. Pat the dough out flat, about 1-inch thick. Let rest for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  5. Cut biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Push the cutter straight down on the dough. Twisting the cutter impacts the shape of the biscuit, making it uneven.
  6. Transfer the biscuit to a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes until set and browned. Remove to cooling rack.
  7. To cook eggs:
  8. In a small bowl thoroughly mix egg with a splash of water.
  9. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add a teaspoon of butter to pan. When melted, add the egg. Let the egg cook as a flat omelet. Lift the pan and tilt it to the side. Using a spatula, lift the corner of the egg to allow the uncooked egg to run to the bottom of the pan. Return to heat until egg is cooked to your liking.
  10. Split the biscuit. Spread with teaspoon of Garlic Herb Sabra Spread. Fill with egg and cheese.

Here are two more yummy ways I played with my food:

Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper Egg Salad 

With Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper Spread, I lowered the calories and fat by replacing the mayonnaise with the chick pea-based spread. My curried egg salad sand has less mayo because I swap some mayo with plain yogurt. The Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper Spread added flavor, but not in a beany-pea way. It also added a bit more body to the sandwich – a good thing since some egg salads are fall-out-of-the-sandwich creamy. AKA sloppy.


Ricotta cheese, Garlic & Herb Sabra Spread, Cucumber, Tomato toast

I mixed = parts ricotta with Garlic & Herb Spread. The Sabra Spread gave the otherwise bland ricotta a delish background to my veggie sandwich. 1+1= Yum!

      Great, Serena! The chives and pepper were even better than I expected. And the flavor develops over time…if they last beyond the first meal!
