Bacon drop biscuits are delicious treats that are great with coffee or your preferred fruit juice. Have them for an afternoon snack or pack them for your kids’ snacks.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tablespoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
1 cup sour cream
6 bacon rashers
1 teaspoon oil
3/4 cup grated Gruyere cheese
Preheat the oven at 425F and slightly grease a baking sheet with butter.
Heat the oil in a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Fry the bacon rashers for 2-3 minutes or until they are crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain the excess oil. Crumble the bacon and set aside.
Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt into a bowl. Next, cut the butter using a pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbs. Make sure that it doesn’t melt. Gradually add the flour mixture and mix it into the butter.
Add the sour cream into the butter and flour mixture. Fold in the bacon and cheese. Spoon heaping drops of batter into the greased baking sheet; bake it for 15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Serve warm.
