Cheesy Bacon Onion Drop Biscuits


8 to 10 biscuits

  • 2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • ½ cup finely shredded cheese -blend of choice or American or sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup crumbled crisp-cooked bacon or commercial bacon bits (optional)
  • 1/3 cup minced peeled onion or green onion (include some green tops)
  • ½ teaspoon each finely snipped fresh parsley, basil, thyme, and marjoram
  •    or oregano leaves (no stems), or ¼ teaspoon each dried herbs,
  •    or 1 to 1½ teaspoon(s) dried Italian herbs (optional)
  • 2/3 cup milk (see note)

 In a medium bowl, combine the first 4 to 5 ingredients; stir in milk, mixing just until dry ingredients are thoroughly moist. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake in a preheated hot oven (425 degrees F.) for 12 to 15 minutes or until biscuits are done and golden brown.

Note: Omit milk and use half-and-half for a shorter biscuit dough.  May also substitute reduced- fat or skim milk, if desired, for a reduced-calorie/reduced-fat biscuit dough
