Lunchtime Hospitality: Cheddar Bacon Drop Biscuits


Drop biscuits are great, quick way to have homemade biscuits in a short period of time.  Perfect for lunchtime entertaining!  They don’t require yeast and cook quickly in the oven.  The combination of the sharp cheddar and bacon in these drop biscuits from Cooking Light Magazine have wonderful salty notes that will compliment many meals.

        Haha, I certainly do! However, Jon and I are still going to try to keep to a 70-80% Paleo lifestyle if possible… after our “victory meals” of course. 😉

    Cheddar AND bacon? Holy cow, that’s a winner for sure. They look so delicious and seem to be begging for a bowl of soup or chowder, don’t they? Thanks for sharing!
