Bacon and Cheese Biscuits

bacon and cheese biscuits recipe

I’d love to reveal a little secret about our monkey household of two.

We love biscuits! All sorts of them!

Unbelievable, huh?

 

Biscuits are especially enjoyed by the male monkey over here.

You should see his smile each time he finds out they are in the oven.

It’s the widest and most content smile I’ve ever seen.

And when the biscuits are done my boyfriend immediately grabs his plate of at least fourteen and hurries to watch his favorite sitcoms.

I love to make biscuits because somehow they make the world a perfect place.

They are magical.

Here are the ingredients.

And here’s the bacon.

It’s a crucial part of the magic.

1. To make your own Bacon and Cheese Biscuits, first preheat the oven to 390 °F (200 °C).

 

2. Then slice the bacon thinly.

3. In a large pan, fry the bacon over moderate heat until crisp.

This will take a couple of minutes.

4. When beautifully crispy, remove the bacon from the pan and crumble it finely.

5. Grab the cheese and grate it.

Just like this.

This is a lot of cheese.

 

The cheese mostly will constitute the flavor of your biscuits. So choose the one you really like.

It’s completely up to you.

I used Leerdammer. Next time I’ll try Cheddar, I think.

It’s fun because the biscuits can be different every time.

6. Now we need a large bowl.

Using a pastry cutter (or just a fork), combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne pepper and butter until crumbs form.

7. Stir in the grated cheese and the bacon.

8. Then add the milk…

9. …and stir together just until the dry ingredients are well moistened.

10. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and make a Halloween face out of it.

Sorry.

What I really mean is that now you should knead the dough 4 – 5 times.

To make the biscuits perfectly soft, the trick is not to over-knead the dough.

11. Roll it out to about 1/2 inch (1 cm) thickness.

When it gets sticky use some flour to make the job easier.

12. Cut out rounds using a 2-inch (5 cm) cutter.

Pat the scraps together, re-roll them and cut out some more rounds.

13. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Arrange your biscuits on the sheet about 1/2 inch (2.5 cm) apart.

  1. I would change the milk to buttermilk. They give it an extra tang and if you add baking soda, gives them an extra rise because of the chemical reaction with the acid in the buttermilk and the baking soda. I would recommend 2 tsp of baking soda. The biscuits will rise higher and fluffier.

    Blessings on you and yours

  3. These look amazing — I’m going to buy the ingredients tomorrow — the first time in months and months and months that I’ve had bacon — I might as well make something yummy when I splurge — thanks for the recipe 🙂

    • Hi Amanda! Thanks! I haven’t taken any culinary classes, well, other than standing in my Mom’s and Grandma’s kitchens and staring at the wonders they did. Although, I’d travel to some good French culinary school to learn it all right now… that’s a secret dream of mine. 🙂 Petra

  4. Hello. I do not see instructions for what temperature the oven should be and if it should be preheated and what shelf to place the biscuits.

    If I find this out, I’d love to try this recipe!

  6. These looks amazing!!! Caught my attention quickly and made me very hungry. These look even better than Red Lobster! Thank you for taking the time to share your recipe. It is very easy to follow the instructions you posted. I will be making these as soon as I get a chance. Wonderful blog!

  7. For me at first sight, it looks a bit weird as I grew up with biscuits being sweet. Its like Cheese Ice Cream in Philippines, Corn and Milk Crushed Ice Shake in Malaysia or Marmite sandwich in New Zealand. But on second thought bacon and cheese have that really nice flavours which negates that tought, looks like this is a must try. Just the images you have there makes me drool already.
