As a welcome home/ “Please don’t go on tour again for a while” treat I made my Honey some Maple Bacon Biscuits… what’s not to love?! Biscuits?! Yum! Maple Syrup?! Delicious BACON?! Yes please!
These biscuits are light and fluffy just like my Gma taught me, with the added bonus of a salty/smokey/sweet kick!
What You’ll Need:
Makes eight 2inch biscuits
6 Slices of Bacon
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 Stick Cold Unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
3/4 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup (plus 1 tablespoon for later)
Preheat your overn to 400 degrees. Dice and fry your bacon until it’s nice and crispy, blot away excess fat and allow to cool completely. In a large bowl mix the flour and baking powder then cut the cold butter into the flour until its the texture of fine pebbles (yes, there should be chuncks of butter left… thats what makes the biscuits rise and get flaky!). Mix together the syrup, milk and bacon, then gently combine with the flour and butter mix, do not over mix this! The idea is to get get all the ingredients to stick together, it’s no biggie if its not perfect! Place the dough on a floured surface and press until its about 1 inch thick, cut with a 2in circle cutter and place on a baking sheet about 1/2 inches apart from each other, brush the top of each biscuit with the extra maple syrup and bake on the center rack for 12-15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
I know if will be difficult, but please let them cool (just a little, they’re AMAZING warm!) before devouring them! These beauties didn’t last long in our house!
