  2. These look fantastic. Have fun at BlogherFood! Sorry I’m missing it – hope to see you next year! – mary

  3. I did a double take when I saw a recipe with bacon on your site! They do look fantastic, though. I know my hubby would love them since he loves bacon, as well!

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

  5. 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! 🙂

  6. 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!

  7. 4 stars
    it might be my oven but 450 for 15 minutes burnt the bottoms so I think I’ll try for 425 the next time but the flavor was very good
