Bacon Cheddar Drop Biscuits

Yes, you read the title correctly. I am posting a BACON recipe.  Josh loves bacon almost as much as he loves me:) Last week, he worked on our kitchen all day long and I thought it would be nice to surprise him with a batch of bacon cheddar drop biscuits for dinner.

When Josh walked in the door, the smell of bacon put a huge grin on his face. He was excited bacon was included in the dinner plans. When I pulled the tray of biscuits out of the oven he ran over and asked if there was bacon in the biscuits. He looked closer and shouted, YES! I was glad I made him happy before he even tasted the biscuits. He ended up eating five biscuits with his soup that night. They were definitely a hit.

These drop biscuits are easy to make.  You don’t have to worry about rolling out the dough or cutting the biscuits, which is nice. They are loaded with cheddar cheese, green onions, and bacon.

These bacon cheddar drop biscuits  will put on a smile on any bacon lovers face. Make them to go with your meal tonight.

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda

6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
2 green onions, finely chopped
3 strips cooked bacon, chopped
1 cup buttermilk

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spay and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Mix in cold butter with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in Cheddar cheese, green onions, and bacon. Add buttermilk and stir with a spatula until just combined.
