Ok, so they are biscuits. They are pioneer woman’s biscuits. Doesn’t mean I can eat them. However, I’ve always been fascinated by biscuits. It’s hard to find a REALLY good biscuit. Most of them are dry or tasteless, but when you do find a good one, they are REAL good.
So I thought this sounds perfect!
#1: It’s PW. I love her. She’s awesome.
#3: Cheddar. Everything is better with cheddar.
#4: Onions. The wonderful, tasty little veggie, gas and bad breath inducing as it may be.
Can’t go wrong right?
So, first, I fried up some bacon. Hmmmmm, bacon.
It’s supposed to be done, but not too crispy.
Then, chop that up with some onions. I used my trust processor for this.
Then we mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and shortening using a pastry cutter.
Add some oil.
By the way, did I tell you how much I love the recipe manager on my Ipad? It’s a God-send.
Now whisk the oil, egg, milk mix some more.
Now put your cheese into the flour mixture.
Then add the bacon onion mixture.
And finally add the milk mixture.
Now mix that up really good and well. It’s gonna be super super lumpy.
Grease up some muffin pans, in whatever way you will. I use Pam. And drop the mix into the pans by the heaping spoonful. I actually filled mine up pretty good because I didn’t want little muffins.
Bake them for 22 minutes at 375. And you’ll have nice golden Bacon Onion Cheddar Biscuits.
How were they? They were ok. I really want to jump for joy and tell you they were amazing. But I just though, eh, they were ok. HOWEVER, the boys loved them.
Keep in mind that I didn’t use super sharp cheddar either, because all I had was mild, and that I’m not used to carbs. So my primal palette has sort of adjusted and most carbs now tastes kind of plain to me. I suppose with the addition of more salt and sharper cheddar, and believe it or not perhaps MORE cheddar, these would have been really good. To me at least. But they got eaten up by everyone else.
So my quest for the perfect biscuit shall continue!
Even though I really don’t eat biscuits.
And when I do they make my blood go super thick.
And typically they aren’t my favorite thing in the world.
Don’t ask me why I search. I’m mental. You knew this.
