Do you smell that? Yep, it’s the wonderful aroma of bacon sizzling in the pan. It’s a smell that’s never mistaken in my house. And in my opinion, any bacon is good bacon. And I don’t think it’s exclusive to breakfast.
The crisp, salty strips can also be used for lunch, dinner or even a snack. And this week’s recipe can be used for any of those, too.
For Bacon Cheddar Biscuits, you will need…
6 slices bacon
2-1/2 c. baking mix
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1 c. cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c. milk
I could easily have one of these biscuits for breakfast or with a nice big bowl of chili or soup.
Start by frying the bacon in a large skillet. You want it crispy but not burnt, so be sure to keep an eye on it.
While the bacon is frying, mix together the baking mix with the melted butter and milk to form a sticky dough. If it looks a little too thin, add more baking mix 1/4 cup at a time.
Crumble the bacon and combine it with the cheese and dough, mixing well.
Preheat the oven. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and use a floured rolling pen to flatten the dough to about 1 inch thick.
Cut out the biscuits using a 2-1/2 to 3-inch round cookie cutter. Repeat the rolling and cutting process until all of the dough is used.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with butter.
These biscuits are a perfect celebration of International Bacon Day on Aug. 31 so I hope you get to try them by then. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!

Kelly, my shining STAR, what is your favorite baking mix?
Hi Jean, I like to use Pioneer for biscuits and Bisquick for pancakes. They are both great. Happy baking!
Think this is one is on the menu this long holiday weekend. YUM!!!
