Cheesy Bacon Biscuits. Take an ordinary package of biscuit mix and turn it into a pumped up breakfast biscuit. Can have for a snack too!
This could be considered lazy, or time saving. You choose. Either way, it doesn’t take long to make these Cheesy Bacon Biscuits. You’ll learn that in most of my recipes, I like taking the easy way out and using mixes, etc..
The biscuit mix I used in this recipe was Bisquick Buttermilk. Easy peasy. Only calls for 1/2 cup of water.
If you would like to make an easy homemade biscuit recipe…check MomonTimeOut’s “The Best Homemade Biscuit Recipe”. Just replace my ingredients – Bisquick Mix and Water.
Bake the Bacon
Also, I baked the bacon rather than using my skillet and frying it. I have been doing this more and more lately. Mainly, because it’s easier clean up. I just let the grease hardened up some on the foil. Then, I fold it up and trash it. Wash the baking sheet rather than the stove top from the splatter and the skillet that, sometimes, you have to clean twice to get the grease off.
We had these with fried eggs. Dip the biscuit in the yolk. Even yummier. My youngest will make a fried egg and dunk her sausage or biscuit or toast and not even eat the whites. Are you a dunker?
If you like recipes with biscuits, I have a great one for you. Again, there is no making biscuits from scratch (although you can) with my Sausage Biscuits and Gravy Casserole. However, I do make the gravy from scratch, but that’s pretty easy to do.
Or, you could try my Breakfast Casserole and use these biscuits.
