Soft, flaky, and buttery biscuits are filled with maple syrup and smoky bacon. These Maple Bacon Biscuits are salty sweet comfort food!
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!
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!
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!
