RECIPE: BACON CHEDDAR BISCUITS

Bacon. Cheese. What could be better? I bake these in a mini muffin tin but I call them biscuits not muffins since to me, muffins are sweet. You would make these to accompany ribs for a BBQ or maybe to go with an all vegetable supper. I know this much; when I show up with these, there are never any left!

 A southern classic; Bacon Cheese biscuits are kinda like muffins but I call them biscuits because to me, muffins are always sweet.

Difficulty: Easy

Prep Time: 15 minutes  Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

INGREDIENTS

2 cups all purpose flour

3 tablespoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

Pinch granulated sugar

¼ teaspoon white pepper

¼ teaspoon black pepper

¼ teaspoon dry mustard

Pinch dried thyme

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated

6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 egg, beaten

1 cup whole milk

¼ cup vegetable oil

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 400. Grease 2 mini muffin tins with butter or non-stick spray if you prefer.

Mix dry ingredients plus the cheese and bacon together in a bowl. Toss together to coat the bacon and cheese. Beat the egg in a separate bowl; add milk and oil and pour into the dry ingredients. Using a fork, mix together until combined; don’t over mix. Pour into the prepared tins, filling them 2/3 full. Bake 12-15 minutes or until puffy and golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Let them sit in the pan to cool for 3 minutes and then remove them; place on a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 3 dozen.
