Tender drop biscuits loaded with bacon, goat cheese, and green onions is straight up comfort food awesomeness.
Total Time:30 minutes
6 slices bacon, cooked til crisp and chopped
3–3/4 cup flour
1–1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1–1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cut into chunks
4 ounces goat cheese
2 green onions, chopped
1–3/4 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line one or two baking sheets with parchment paper. If you only have one small baking sheet, you can make these in two batches.
If you haven’t cooked your bacon already, do that now. However you like to cook bacon is great. Get it chopped into pieces to get folded into your biscuit dough.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add your pieces of cold butter, and use your clean hands to smash and smoosh the butter and flower together until combined. You’ll have a sort of sandy mixture.
Add in the cooked bacon, crumble in to goat cheese, and toss the green onions into the bowl as well. Fold all this evenly throughout your buttery flour.
Finally, stir in the buttermilk until combined. Since these are drop biscuits, this will be wetter than a typical biscuit dough.
Using a quarter cup measure or a large scoop, plop 12 mounds of dough onto your waiting baking sheets. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits just show a hint of golden brown action.
