Maple Bacon Biscuits

If there’s one thing that has been missing from my life, it’s homemade biscuits. I’ve made them a few times, like for my One Pot Chicken Pot Pie, or my Chicken Pot Pie Soup. Before now though, I haven’t made them as a regular thing for breakfast. Whyyyyy though?!

Now that I’ve made them, I’m kicking myself for not making homemade biscuits. Especially since this recipe has maple syrup and bacon in it! Yep you read that right – Maple Bacon Biscuits!

Maple Bacon Biscuits

To make these Maple Bacon Biscuits, you start by whisking together all of the dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. There’s quite a bit of baking powder and baking soda, but that’s on purpose. It’s so they rise nice and tall!

Next, you’ll add the chives, cheese, and bacon to the flour mixture, and grate up the cold butter. Grating the butter makes it easier to incorporate into the flour mixture and I love this little trick for making biscuits!

Maple Bacon Biscuits

After adding the butter to the flour mixture, you’re going to add buttermilk and maple syrup and combine it so it forms a dough. After cutting the dough into biscuits, you freeze them for about 15 minutes and then it’s time to bake! Aside from brownies, these biscuits baking in the oven are the most heavenly smell you could imagine!

These Maple Bacon Biscuits were devoured by our family! They are a meal in theirselves, but Marc and I loved making egg sandwiches with them. We had them at breakfast but they’d really be great at any meal – lunch or dinner, too!

Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon cooked, and chopped into small pieces
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chives
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 tablespoons butter cold
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup

For topping:

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Mix in the chives, cheese, and chopped bacon.
  • With a cheese box grater, grate the cold butter. If you don't have a box grater, just cut it up into small pieces.
  • Add the butter to the flour mixture and stir until it resembles coarse crumbs or a very soft dough.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and maple syrup.
  • Add the buttermilk mixture to the dough and stir until combined.
  • Dump the dough onto a lightly floured mixture and slightly knead to get the dough completely combined.
  • Roll out into a rectangle that is approximately 1 1/2" thick.
  • Using a biscuit cutter, cookie cutter, or a pizza cutter, cut out ~12 biscuits from the dough. Note: The number of biscuits will depend on how large your biscuit cutter is, but it should be between 10-12.
  • Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and freeze for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Prior to baking, mix the melted butter and maple syrup in a small bowl.
  • Brush over the biscuits before baking. There should be leftover which will be used after baking.
  • Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 14-16 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Immediately after baking brush with more of the butter/maple syrup mixture.
  • Serve and enjoy!
