Every kid has a favorite food. Some kids go for the pizza, some for the mac and cheese, mine has a soft spot for biscuits – or “bikscuits” as he calls them. Can you blame him? There’s something so comforting and satisfying about a soft, warm biscuit fresh from the oven. Whether you slather yours in butter and honey, douse it with creamy sausage gravy, or eat them plain, you can’t go wrong with a biscuit.
These biscuits are a step above your average biscuit. Covered in Swiss cheese slices and crumbled bacon, then scattered with additional cheese for good measure…oh yeah, don’t forget the fresh herbs. These babies are goooood.
Easter is just two days away and I’ve got some thigh-scaring, tummy-terrifying dishes planned. Can’t wait to share!
Cheesy Bacon Pull-Aparts
(adapted from Tasty Kitchen)
serves: 6 Printable Recipe
1 can (16.3oz) refrigerated Grand's biscuits
4 slices Swiss cheese
1 package (2 oz size) pre-cooked bacon
1/2 cup grated triple cheddar blend
1 tsp chopped fresh herbs (thyme, oregano, basil, etc)
Preheat oven to 325ºF. Grease a 9″ pan or skillet. Place biscuits in the pan and top each biscuit with half a slice of Swiss cheese. Coarsely chop the bacon and sprinkle over the Swiss cheese. Top bacon with shredded cheddar cheese. Sprinkle your choice of herbs over the shredded cheese.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and biscuits are cooked through. Depending on how much cheese you pile on top, this may take a little longer to bake through. Serve immediately.
Note: If you have more time, you can easily make these from scratch for added deliciousness!
