Cheesy Bacon Biscuits

These cheesy biscuits are a brand new favorite in our house. I made them first for a Saturday brunch and we ate them with scrambled eggs and a fruit salad.

When I made them later that week to photograph them to share, we enjoyed them with bowls of The Easiest Chili Ever. My middle son has been snacking on these biscuits pretty much any time they’re in the house.

Looking for a classic biscuit recipe? Fluffy Biscuits with plenty of buttery layers are possible with just a few helpful tips and about ten minutes of hands-on effort.

Savory ham and cheddar cheese are layered into these hearty biscuits. And these Strawberries and Cream Biscuits are part scone, part super easy drop biscuits. They’re the perfect sweet addition to any brunch table.

Don’t miss these fluffy and tender Gluten-Free Biscuits if you need something allergy-friendly too!

Cheesy Bacon Green Chile Biscuits

I made a double batch of the biscuits last time and tucked the leftovers in the fridge thinking maybe I’d make some breakfast sandwiches with them in a day or two.

I came back to them the next day and there were only a few left. Clearly, they’ve been a big hit with my whole crew.

These Cheesy Bacon Green Chile Biscuits can be made with or without the optional green chile. However, we LOVE them with the green chile and can’t recommend it highly enough.

I know that not everyone is a fan of heat and spice, but in this case, the green chile adds such a terrific depth of flavor.

Cheesy Drop Biscuits

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Stir together the dry ingredients. Grate the butter into the dry ingredients and stir lightly to combine. Use a fork or pastry blender to cut in the cold butter pieces until the mixture resembles a coarse meal with little pea size or smaller lumps throughout.
  2. Whisk the egg into the milk and then pour into the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Stir just long enough to combine. The mixture should be somewhat dry and just a tiny bit sticky at this point. Add the cheese, bacon, and green chile. Stir or press lightly with your hands to combine.
  3. Line a sheet pan or 9×13 pan with parchment paper and drop the batter by 1/2 cup portions onto the lined pan.
  4. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until the bottom of the biscuits are lightly browned. The tops of these biscuits will not brown very much at all, although the pieces of cheese in the dough should toast nicely.
  5. Remove from the oven and transfer to a basket or cooling rack.

Green Chile Recipes

Growing up in the Southwest has gifted me with a well-known love of green chile and the dozens of green chile-filled recipes that we enjoy are evidence of that.

From Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas (that you can make in just 30 minutes!) to Mexican Lasagna, White Chicken Chile to the Best Ever Green Chile Stew, green chile makes regular appearances on our meal plan.

Our love for chile doesn’t show up just for dinner though. This Green Chile Quiche, Cheddar Bacon Green Chile Waffles, and Breakfast Enchiladas are a few more dishes that the whole family loves.

  1. Mary says

    What type of chili pepper do you mean when you say “green”? There are many different varieties of chilis that are green – jalapeño, serrano, hatch, Anaheim or Poblanos. They are not interchangeable. Each of these would create a completely different flavor. although “drained well” makes me think that maybe you used canned possibly pickled jalapeños?

    • Mary Younkin says

      Typically, when chile is referred to as “green chile” it is Anaheim chile peppers or Hatch chile peppers. NM Hatch green chile is typically spicier than Anaheim chile. You can purchase it in jars or canned, already roasted, peeled, and chopped.
