I have to confess, this is my first time making biscuits from scratch! On a recent Sunday morning, we whipped up pancakes for breakfast using Bisquick, and we had a side of bacon. Afterwards we had a ton of bacon leftover so I found this recipe for bacon and cheese biscuits. It’s so simple that even even if it’s your first time baking biscuits y’all will be just fine. Here’s our recipe for Pretty Southern Biscuits with Bacon & Cheese
- 1 package bacon (cooked and chopped)
- 1 cup cheese (we used the shredded Mexican mix)
- 3 c. Bisquick
- 3/4 c. water
Mix cheese, bacon, Bisquick and water together in a big bowl. Knead until all the ingredients come together. Roll out onto a floured cutting board until the dough is about 1/2 inch thick. Cut with small biscuit cutter or juice glass. Top with a bit of shredded cheese then bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Remove immediately from pan and set on a rack to cool.
