Welcome to the Castle Baconia Kitchen!
Hello Bacon Fans and Friends! I have two EASY PEASY breakfast treats for you involving bacon today – why two? Because they are such simple recipes I figured I “owed” you two instead of one. Also I must admit I’ve probably done very similar recipes to these before – so forgive me if they are repeats. Let’s face it – I just can’t resist bacon recipes!
First up is Bacon Quiche Biscuit Cups……………..are you ready????
Bacon Quiche Biscuit Cups
5 slides bacon
1 package (8 oz.) softened cream cheese
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 can Pillsbury (or another brand) Flaky Layers Buttermilk biscuits (10 biscuits)
1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 10 regular-size muffin cups with CRISCO® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. In 8-inch skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; set aside.
2 Meanwhile, in small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add milk and eggs, beating at low speed until smooth. Stir in Swiss cheese and onions. Set aside.
3 Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Press or roll each to form 5-inch round. Place 1 biscuit round in each muffin cup; firmly press in bottom and up sides, forming 1/4-inch rim. Place half of bacon in bottom of dough-lined muffin cups. Spoon cheese mixture evenly into cups.
4 Bake 21 to 26 minutes or until filling is set and edges of biscuit cups are golden brown. Sprinkle each with remaining bacon; lightly press into filling. Remove biscuit cups from pan.
Easy? Yes! Yummy? Certainly!
Next up one that’s even better in my humble Kingly opinion. It has apples in it and apples and bacon are an incredibly tasty combo………………………….
Apple Bacon Breakfast Flatbread
Oh man oh man is this one yummy…………………
1 can Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheet
12 slices of bacon, chopped
4 oz. (half 8-oz. package) softened cream cheese
1/4 cup raspberry preserves
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
1 large apple, peeled, chopped
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 15×10-inch nonstick pan with sides with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. Unroll dough in pan; press dough to edges of pan. Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
2 Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until crisp. Drain on paper towels; set aside.
3 Spread cream cheese over partially baked crust to within 1/2 inch of edges. Spread preserves over cream cheese. Top with pepper Jack cheese, bacon, apple and Cheddar cheese. Bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until thoroughly heated and cheese is melted.
Oohh la la…….and NO I’m not working part-time for Pillsbury but that’s the brand of pre-made biscuits or flatbread, etc. that we have in our grocery. If you have other kinds – go for it – doesn’t matter who makes them – it’s just that pre-made makes it EASIER! We’re all for EASY right cooks????
Yes Pierre. And you are a great cook here at the Castle – it’s kind of you to allow me in here to play with dough (!) on Saturdays.
Now, I must go take a Royal Nap. Baking is tiring. I’ll take any excuse for a nap…………you know how cats are – even if they are KINGS!!!!!
I shall return next Saturday with more ROYAL RECIPES from the Castle Baconia kitchens!
