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.
