Bacon Cheddar Drop Biscuits

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.

Bacon Cheddar Drop Biscuits

Yield: 15-17 biscuits

Cook Time: 15-17 minutes


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
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
3 tablespoons butter, melted


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.

3. Drop round spoonfuls of dough, about three tablespoons, onto prepared baking sheet. Brush biscuits with melted butter. Bake 15-17 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Remove from oven and serve warm.

    Did someone mention bacon? Put bacon in anything and I’m all over it. These biscuits look so, so tasty. Love the flecks of color running throughout each one. I’m eating with my eyes :)

    For all of us bacon lovers I am sure these would be more than welcome with our comfort foods this fall.

    hahahah going to prove the fastest way to a mans heart is through his tummy. Love biscuits- especially drop biscuits! I hate going through the whole rolling out/cutting ordeal. Great work chicky.

    These are the most beautiful biscuits ever! Mmmm!

  5. Heather — October 4, 2010 @ 6:35 am

    You have struck my weakness….biscuits! Yum! My grandmother would make biscuits all the time for me when I was a little girl. So I’m a huge lover. I love these and I love the addition of the bacon and cheese…heaven! Wish I had one of these right now. :)

    I had some scone recently that were very similar. A great way to start the morning.

    I love that you don’t have to roll and cut these! They look amazing!

  9. alison @ Ingredients, Inc. — October 4, 2010 @ 8:04 am

    Love the touch of bacon and green onions in these. This is an awesome Thanksgiving and Christmas recipe too!

  10. I bet these would go great with a big, warm pot of clam chowder or chili… mmm!

    Of course Josh was smiling, ’cause you are the best. Bacon rules, great way to use it in these scones :) xo

  13. Estela @ Weekly Bite — October 4, 2010 @ 8:56 am

    Oh gosh, I am drooling at the top photo. Bacon isn’t really on my diet though, so I better not make them! You’re sweet to make a treat for Josh; bet you’re really getting excited to have the kitchen done!

    • twopeas replied: — October 4th, 2010 @ 4:10 pm

      Kalyn-next time we make them we will save you one. You deserve a splurge once in awhile:) The kitchen is so close. We will have you over soon!

  17. Kara — October 4, 2010 @ 9:43 am

    These look fabulous Maria! My boys and hubbie all love bacon, so I’ll have to try these next time I make soup. :)

  18. katrina — October 4, 2010 @ 9:44 am

  24. Jan — October 4, 2010 @ 12:28 pm

    These look yummy, Maria! FYI, Whole Foods has chopped up cooked real bacon bits in a tiny pouch in the bacon cooler–no frying! I’m so happy to see the recipe titles are printing out when I click on the PRINT RECIPE function. Cheers to you!

      Jan-thank you for the helpful hint. I am glad the print function is working for you again.

  25. Deborah — October 4, 2010 @ 12:49 pm

    It seems like I make something with bacon at least once a week – we are definitely a bacon loving household! These look amazing!

  26. pigpigscorner — October 4, 2010 @ 1:23 pm

  27. bacon AND biscuits…2 of my favorite things! Looks like a wonderful recipe. :-)

    My first thought when I saw this title was…”wait…aren’t you a vegetarian?” Hehe.

    • twopeas replied: — October 4th, 2010 @ 4:07 pm

      Ha! Yes, I am still a veggie:) Josh enjoys his pork products though:)

  30. Tessa — October 4, 2010 @ 2:24 pm

    I’m going to agree with your husband, “YES!” This sounds like a killer flavor combination.

  31. Liz @ Blog is the New Black — October 4, 2010 @ 2:28 pm

    Bacon makes anything taste good. These look delectable!

  32. Cupcake Activist — October 4, 2010 @ 2:30 pm

    These are similar to my favorite biscuits at Red Lobster, so I’m sure I would love them!

  33. zerrin — October 4, 2010 @ 2:43 pm

    These are right up my alley! I love their texture, too.

  34. Tracy — October 4, 2010 @ 4:58 pm

    These would go perfectly with chili. Delicious!

  35. Nastassia — October 4, 2010 @ 5:47 pm

    for some reason the thought of making biscuits always seemed so scary but after reading the recipe I feel confident i can make them. and if i can make my bf as happy as josh was it will be all worth it :)

  36. Asha@FSK — October 4, 2010 @ 6:10 pm

    oooh! I’d like some right now!!!

  37. megan — October 4, 2010 @ 6:40 pm

    How funny, I can just picture Josh’s smile. He’s one lucky man!

  38. My Man's Belly — October 4, 2010 @ 7:24 pm

    Well, that’s my motto: the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. These look better than those addicting biscuits from Red Lobster.

  39. Cookin' Canuck — October 4, 2010 @ 8:30 pm

    What pretty biscuits, Maria! I never thought I’d see the day when bacon graced your site. 😉

  40. Cristie — October 4, 2010 @ 10:19 pm
