    I’m back! I know I have been pretty MIA this week but I’ve seriously been so freaking busy.

    But these cheddar bacon & green onion biscuits make up for that, right?

    cheddar bacon chive biscuitsNo hard feelings, kay? I’m giving you lots of butter and bacon and that should make almost anyone happy as a…biscuit?

    cheddar bacon chive biscuitsGreat recipe for Friday because you can roll out of bed and make these tomorrow or Sunday for brunch!

    I love biscuits. I love the buttery and flaky texture of it and I love that after I eat one (or two), my hands are so greasy. It sounds so disgusting, haha, but it’s so good. Who doesn’t love that guilt every now and then?

    Biscuits for me as a kid were a staple breakfast item on the weekends. My mom would always get the Grands biscuits in a can and the buttery flaky layered ones. Omgosh, waking up to that smell was glorious. And with eggs and bacon on the side, what more could a little girl want on a Saturday or Sunday morning??

    I hear a lot about Red Lobster’s cheddar biscuits. You might hate me for saying this but, I’ve never had one. I don’t think I’ve ever even been to a Red Lobster. I know, I should go cower in a corner and get scolded at. So, since I have no way to compare these biscuits to the Red Lobster version, I’ll just have to talk about these biscuits compared to the canned ones and you can probably already guess that I’m going to say they’re 10 times better. They’re flaky, buttery, moist, and the bacon and green onions added in just makes it even better. A whole ‘nother level of goodness. Oh, and you save the pan drippings from the bacon and you bacon grease up the bottom of your baking pan AND use the pan drippings to brush the tops of the biscuits. HELLO, HEAVEN!

    • 6 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked to crisp perfection and diced
    • 1 cup all purpose flour
    • 1 cup cake flour
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
    • 3/4 tsp salt
    • 1 stick unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small cubes
    • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1/4 cup green onions, diced (you can use chives, I didn't have any on hand)
    • 1 cup buttermilk


    • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
    • In a large skillet, cook your bacon until it's nice and crisp then drain them on a paper towel lined plate. Let them cool before dicing them. Do NOT discard the pan drippings. You'll need them!
    • While your bacon is cooling, dump the two flours, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt into a food processor. Pulse a few times to mix everything up.
    • Then start putting in the cubes of butter and pulse until you achieve the consistency of coarse meal. Dump the flour mixture into a medium sized mixing bowl.
    • Add in the cheese, onions and bacon and mix it up to spread around the ingredients.
    • Pour in the buttermilk and start stirring with a spatula until you have no dry flour remaining. You'll probably just start using your hands to mix everything up towards the end.
    • Form the dough into a ball and place it on a lightly floured flat surface and use your hands or rolling pin to flatten the ball to a 3/4" thick circle.
    • Use a biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuit rounds. Ball up the excess scraps and reflatten to use up all the dough.
    • When ready, using a brush, brush some of the pan drippings from the bacon on the bottom of the baking pan (I used a 8 x 8") and place your biscuits on top. Then take the brush and brush the tops of the biscuits with more pan drippings.
    • Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops start getting brown.
    • Serve hot with more butter and breakfast!

  • Jessica @ Portuguese Girl Cooks says:

    These look sooo good!

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen says:

    Yummm. I love putting bacon in biscuits. It’s pretty much how they all should be. These would be perfect for a big Sunday breakfast :)

  • Megan @ Country Cleaver says:

    Cheese + Biscuits = luv 4 ‘eva!

  • Bryan & YiRan says:

    Omg these are to die for. Bacon and cheddar… YUM. And honestly, I think this sounds better with green onions than chives. Chives… whatever.

    Bloggy question for you – how do you get that nice “printer friendly” module to work? I love how that’s formatted. I do a lot of photos on my blog but would like to have a printer friendly option so people can just use the recipes without the photos but haven’t been able to find a solution as nice as yours. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

  • Bryan & Herbie says:

    These look great and I think honestly, that the scallions are a better addition than the chives would have been anyway. I’ll be trying this out this weekend because I <3 bacon.

    Bloggy question for you – how do you get that nice printer friendly module? I've got a lot of process pictures on my blog and would like to be able to offer a printer friendly option so people can see just the recipe, but haven't been able to find anything as nice as yours. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    • Julie says:

      Thanks for the sweet comment. I actually coded and made the printer friendly module myself. I’m a web developer & designer by day so I kind of have that advantage ;) but, there are stuff out there that you can google. Some are wordpress plugins and the most popular one out there is actually called “Printer Friendly”. I hope this helps you!

  • Cassie says:

    Love times a million. These are perfect!!

  • Michelle says:

    i LOVE biscuits, but cheddar and green onions!! hello lover :)

  • Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking says:

    Surprisingly, I’ve never made my own biscuits. But I love the look of these, and the flavors you used! What a great recipe. Thanks, Julie!

  • Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious says:

    I can’t believe you’ve never been to Red Lobster. When I was a kid, we’d go there quite frequently, and when we did, it was always a special occasion, like if it was someone’s birthday or something. I’m sure if we won the lottery, we’d celebrate there. I remember the food being so good but when Jason and I went a couple of years ago, the food was absolute crap. All their stuff is packed with salt! And I didn’t get any of their biscuits either. Well, maybe I did and it just wasn’t memorable.

    Anyway that’s my spiel. The biscuits look great Julie. And saving the bacon grease is absolutely genius. I’ll have to make this for Jason when he comes home for spring break :)

  • elizabeth @ chronic venture says:

    yum yum yummyyyy!

  • Kathryn says:

    Look at all those amazing flavours in one buttery biscuit! Yes!

  • Bev Weidner says:

    It’s like a dream….

  • Jackie @ Domestic Fits says:

    It’s funny that you say that you’ve been MIA this week when you’ve posted 3 times! That’s more IA than most people regularly. And I love me a cheese biscuit :)

  • Aly ~ Cooking In Stilettos says:

    Oh this looks phenomenal. So making this for brunch this weekend. Great recipe Julie!

  • DessertForTwo says:

    I could eat 10 of these for breakfast. Biscuits just taste so light!

  • amy @ fearless homemaker says:

    ooh, these sound absolutely amazing! pinning to try ’em soon. NOM.

  • These are great for breakfast :) with a thick layer of butter spread over them ~ thanks for sharing!

  • thelittleloaf says:

    Om nom nom! These look so good . . .

  • Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray (soon to be Rachel Cooks) says:

    I’ve been very MIA from my Google Reader lately, but I scrolled back through your posts and holy crap you’ve got some delicious looking stuff going on! I would have proposed too! ;)

  • Sally @ Spontaneous Hausfrau says:

    It’s breakfast in a biscuit. I’d happily eat these for breakfast and stash a few in my purse to nibble on hourly, regardless of how gross that sounds.

  • Jen @ Jen's Favorite Cookies says:

    YUM! I’m on the hunt for good breakfast recipes. I’m pinning this now to try later this week! Thanks for a great recipe!

  • PseudoShea says:

    I just made these for breakfast this morning! They turned out picture perfect and were delicious :) My batch made 11 large biscuits.

  • Elizabeth says:

    I have made biscuits before but, just honest to goodness plain ones. Didn’t use cake flour though. Have you ever made this with 2 cups of all-purpose?

    • Julie says:

      No, I have not. I like the cake flour in this because it makes the biscuit softer.

  • Misty says:

    Luv your site – Excited to try some of your awesome recipes.
    Do you know if these freeze well?


    • Julie says:

      If you’re talking about the dough, yes, you can make the dough then freeze them and when you’re ready to bake them, just pop them in the oven. The bake time will be slightly longer though since it’s going from freezer to oven.
