Bacon Onion Cheddar Biscuits (Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman)


A hearty snack that hits the spot.  

This is going to make a wonderful breakfast and also perfect side dish for dinner.    

The recipe is totally awesome.  It was taken from Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman.

These biscuits are just so delicious.  It is pretty easy to make.  It loaded with lots of cheddar cheese, onions and bacon.  This recipe called for frying of bacon and sautéing the onions in some of the bacon leftover grease.

Look!  Oh my goodness.  It’s beautiful and yummy!
Serve them fresh and hot straight from the oven for breakfast or dinner.

You can also freeze leftover by cling-wrapped it individually and place them in the freezer bag.   It’s good on some crazy morning, just simply remove few pieces from the freezer; microwave it for 1-2 mins.  It makes breakfast so easy and convenience.


2 cups (240g)        All-purpose Flour
1 tsp                      Baking Power
¾ tsp                      Salt
1/4 cup (60g)         Vegetable Shortening (I used butter instead)
10 tbsp                  Milk (whole Milk Is Best)
4 tbsp                    Vegetable Oil
1                            Egg
10 slices                Thick Cut Bacon, Fried And rumbled
1 cup                     Finely Diced Onion
1 cup                     Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese


(1)Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry cutter, cut in shortening (or butter) until all combined.

(2)Combine milk, oil, and egg in a separate bowl. Whisk together.

(3)Fry the bacon till done but still leave a little chewy – not burned to crisp.

(4)Remove the bacon from the pan.  Set aside for it to cool.  When it’s cooled, chop it into small pieces.

(5)Combine flour mixture, milk mixture, bacon, onions, and cheddar cheese in a large bowl. Stir gently until all combined.

(6)Spoon batter into greased muffin tins. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes on 190˚C or until golden.

(7)When it is done, remove from pan and serve warm.

    2. Hi Amy,
      Thank you for stopping by, just read your comment! :)
      You don't have to buy any cookbooks if you do not want to, simply get any recipes that you really want to try from any cookbooks or magazines, you can easily get lots of recipes from online, or borrow from your local library. When you link your post, just mention which cookbook or magazine the recipe is from.
      Very flexible! No worries about buying any books just to join in, but if you are like me, I would find any excuse just to get another book! Haha! I'm a cookbook addict, that's why I started Cook-Your-Books! :)

  9. Thanks Joyce :D

    Wow! You're really passionate.

  10. Amy, your biscuits look so delicious and is definitely a comfort food that you don't want to think about calories when you are eating it. I'm sure one isn't enough, or even two or three. Now you are tempting me to make these too :)
