Drop Biscuits with BACON and Cheese

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 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 homemade biscuits out of the oven he ran over and asked if there was bacon in the cheddar biscuits. He looked closer and shouted, YES! I was glad I made him happy before he even tasted these drop biscuits. He ended up eating five of these homemade drop biscuits with his soup that night. They were definitely a hit.

  1. 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.

  2. 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. 🙂

  3. 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!

    1. 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!

  4. Ohboyoboyoboy! Guess what I just bought? BACON – for the first time in months. Your biscuits look just fabulous, and chock full of all my favorite eatables. Can’t wait to make them!

  5. 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!

  6. 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 🙂

  7. Just made these for my family last night to go with our ham & potato chowder. They were amazing!!! Thanks for another great recipe Maria! 🙂

  8. These will be such a huge hit in my house, I can’t even begin to tell you! I think I’ll make them this weekend. Hope you are well! I’ve been a bad visitor lately, but you guys continue to be one of my first stops whenever I am looking for the perfect recipe – you never let me down! 🙂

  9. I tried these last night and they turned out very very good. The biscuits baked up light and fluffy and were very flavorful. I actually used one this morning to make a breakfast sandwich with some scrambled eggs and bacon. Next time I might try a blend of cheeses and see how that works.

    Thank you for such a good recipe!
