Cheesy Bacon Biscuits
These biscuits were super easy and quick to make and tasted amazing with all that buttery, cheesy-bacon goodness. They are a nice spin from the simple, store-bought refrigerated biscuits and can be served as an appetizer before any meal. Be sure not to eat too many of these before dinner because they are VERY filling. The boyfriend devoured 4 whole biscuits before claiming that he was “too full” to eat anything else.
Cheesy Bacon Biscuits (adapted from Picky Palate):
Yields 8 servings
- 6 slices bacon, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 can refrigerated biscuits, 8 count
- 6 thin slices fresh mozzarella, 1/4-inch thick
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9-inch cast iron skillet with olive oil; set aside.
Heat a small skillet over medium high heat. Add the bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes.
(Mmmmmm, just look at that artery-clogging deliciousness.)
Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Unroll biscuits from can and place into bottom of skillet.
Top with slices of mozzarella cheese, bacon crumbles, then shredded cheddar.
Place into oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and biscuits are cooked through. Serve warm.
