Bacon, Cheese and Onion Biscuits

Last night breakfast was on the dinner menu.  The chickens have been out of control lately.  The kids had collected 24 eggs since Saturday!  Each chicken laid an egg a day for the past four days.  This means the egg basket was rapidly getting to the point of over flowing.  I wanted a different biscuit, not the usual biscuit so I googled three ingredients...bacon, cheese and onion.  The first recipe that came up was from the Pioneer Woman's site.  I knew it was meant to be. These would also be tasty served along side soup.

Bacon, Cheese and Onion Biscuits
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ cups Vegetable Shortening (Crisco, Etc)
  • 10 Tablespoons Milk (whole Milk Is Best)
  • 4 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 5 slices bacon, fried crisp and crumbled
  • 1 cup Finely Diced Onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (I used jack, but suppose that Sharp Cheddar Cheese would be super tasty)
Fry bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towel. Pour out all but about 1 tablespoon bacon grease (reserve in fridge for refried beans!). Saute onion until golden and soft. Set aside to cool. Crumble bacon.  Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry cutter, cut in shortening until all combined. Combine milk, oil, and egg in a separate bowl. Whisk together.  Combine flour mixture, milk mixture, bacon, onions, and cheese in a large bowl. Stir gently until all combined.  Spoon batter into greased muffin tins. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes on 375 degrees until golden. Serve warm.


  1. I haven't had breakfast yet - and my mouth is watering.... sounds delicious.

  2. Those look delicious! Our chickens have been going crazy lately too. My oldest daughter actually went around the neighborhood over the weekend and sold 5 dozen eggs.
