Bacon cheese muffin biscuits are a savory biscuit and muffin all in one.
Bacon and cheese are mixed into a batter with ground flaxseed. These are baked in the oven in a muffin pan. They’re the perfect recipe to serve for breakfast, brunch or at lunchtime with a bowl of soup, like our creamy rutabaga carrot soup.
Easy Biscuit Recipe
Love muffins and biscuits? This recipe takes the best of both worlds. I love serving these for a quick brunch idea for guests.
- These biscuits are subtlely sweet, combined with salty bacon and cheddar cheese.
- Biscuit muffins are fun and easy to make. These are similar to our farmhouse sausage biscut muffins.
- Ground flax adds healthy fiber.
- These muffins also freeze well which makes them great for grab-and-go breakfasts!
- These taste lovely when served with soups and stews, including our country ham and bean soup, holiday leftover turkey carcass soup or the delicious creamy carrot tomato soup.
- BACON: 10 bacon strips are cooked in a frying pan, blotted with a paper towel and chopped small. The thin-style bacon works best for this recipe. You can also use chopped bacon topping to save time.
- DRY INGREDIENTS: A combination of flour, brown sugar, ground flaxseed, baking powder and baking soda is used to make these muffins.
- WET INGREDIENTS: You only need one egg and milk.
- CHEESE: Shredded cheddar cheese adds wonderful flavor. You can also use grated mozzarella.
How To Make Bacon Cheese Muffin Biscuits
- First, cook the bacon. Once cooked, pat dry with a paper towel and slice into bite-size pieces.
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, ground flaxseed, baking powder and baking soda according to full recipe card instructions below.
- Beat one egg with the milk, then add to the dry ingredients bowl. Fold in the cheddar cheese and chopped bacon.
- Pour the batter into a greased muffin pan and bake until tops are golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
Leftover muffins can be stored on the counter or in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
You can also freeze these muffins easily. I like to wrap mine individually in parchment and place them all in a large freezer bag. This helps to prevent freezer burn. These tend to taste freshest when gobbled up within 3 months.
