Get excited because these Bacon Goat Cheese & Green Onion Biscuits are absolutely ridiculous. They're savoury, a little bit tangy, crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. You're gonna wish this basket of bread would never end. It's gonna be awesome.
Every now and then, life just jumps up and slaps you in the face a little. It's not even that something specific has happened. Your body just suddenly decides it's done. Nope, we're not moving from this bed. You want this brain to work? Nope, we're not doing that either. Just lay down, woman. I don't give a damn about your to do list. Forget it.
Then you wake up feeling a little bit stiff but mostly refreshed, yet somehow, once you let yourself stop doing things for a minute, it's harder to start doing them again. You're now a day behind, but somehow, your body is still like, "Let's just sit here and scroll Atas Obscura a little bit longer. All that work can wait." The resistance is real, kids.
But we've got biscuits to discuss, so I need to get my ass in gear because you really need to know about these. These rustic drop biscuits are loaded up with awesomeness. We're talking crispy bacon, crumbles of tangy goat cheese, and fresh green onions. Since they're drop biscuits, they have tons of knobbly crunchy bits on the outside, and they're light and fluffy on the inside. The pop of salty goodness when you bite into a piece of bacon will send you right over the edge. These are pure pleasure.
How to make Bacon Goat Cheese & Green Onion Biscuits
They're easy to make as well. Since they're drop biscuits, you don't have to mess around with rolling them out and cutting them, so clean up is less stressful as well. Start by mixing your dry ingredients and cutting in some cold butter. I just use my hands for this. Just smoosh the butter in the flour until you've broken up all the big chunks and your mixture looks like wet sand.
Next, fold in all your goodies. You'll need crisp bacon, crumbled goat cheese, and chopped green onion. I get a log of goat cheese and just crumble it right into the mixing bowl. I also cut my green onions with scissors right over the bowl as well. Then we mix in some buttermilk and use a rubber spatula to stir and smoosh it together until everything is combined. I use a disher to scoop out my biscuit dough onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat. Bake at high heat for about 15 minutes or until they start to turn golden on the outside. All the details are in the recipe card below.
I know bread flour seems sort of counterintuitive for biscuits. I tried this originally with all-purpose flour, and the biscuits spread way too much in the oven. The stronger flour will hold everything together better.
If buttermilk is not available where you live, you can make your own by combining a cup of whole milk with a tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice. Let that sit for 10 minutes, then give it a stir. You can also substitute kefir if you can find that.
Make it magical
Flour made from wheat is a kitchen staple, so even though we've discussed the magical properties of wheat before, I think it's worth reviewing. It's a powerful symbol of abundance and fertility and plays an important role in the mythology of every culture where it's a staple grain. It's particularly celebrated during the first harvest festival in the wheel of the year, Lughnasadh, where the harvesting of wheat takes on special significance. Every time you bake with wheat flour, you're inviting good things into your life. For more magical info on other ingredients in this recipe, check out the Kitchen Magick page.

Bacon Goat Cheese & Green Onion Biscuits
- Prep Time: 15
- Cook Time: 15
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 15 biscuits 1x
- Category: Baked Goods
- Method: Baked
- Cuisine: American
- 6 slices bacon, cooked til crisp and chopped
- 3-¾ cup bread flour
- 1-½ tablespoons baking powder
- 1-½ teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cut into chunks
- 4 ounces goat cheese
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1-¾ cup buttermilk
- Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C) and line one or two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. 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 flour together until combined. You'll have a sort of sandy mixture.
- Add in the cooked bacon, crumble in the 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 12-15 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.
- Serve warm.
