I’m sure when you first read the title of this recipe or you read the face book post you probably thought I went off the deep end or at least went of the reservation! But alas I did not. What I did was take an awesome recipe and make it a bit lower in fat but the biscuits still had wonderful flavor! I chose to use Pioneer Biscuit Mix but you can use what ever your favorite mix is. You follow the typical recipe but add just a couple of things to get the maple, bacon flavor.
When you are adding the liquid they require, replace some of that with 1/4 cup of good maple syrup. Just before the biscuits are totally mixed together (be sure not to over mix or they will be tough), f0ld in some turkey bacon bits or other bacon bits by Oscar Mayer (I gave these a great review in one of my earlier blogs).
Roll out the biscuits and cut with a thick round 2″-2.5″ cookie cutter. Bake according to directions on box. As the biscuits bake make a maple glaze to brush on the biscuits when them come out of the oven. Be sure to serve warm, although they warm up nicely for eating later. I omitted the glaze and used them for BLT’s and my husband was a very happy man!
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
