Bacon cheese muffin biscuits are like a savory biscuit and muffin all in one!
Serve warm for breakfast with butter or for lunch with a bowl of soup like my creamy rutabaga carrot soup.
Bacon Cheese Muffin Biscuits
Love muffins and biscuits? This recipe takes the best of both worlds. These biscuits are subtlely sweet, combined with salty bacon and cheddar cheese. Ground flax adds healthy fiber.
I love serving these for a quick brunch idea for guests. These muffins also freeze well which makes them great for grab-and-go breakfasts!
Bacon Cheese Muffin Biscuit Ingredients
- Bacon – 10 bacon strips are cooked in a frying pan, blotted with a paper towel and chopped small.
- Cheese – 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese is needed. You can also use grated mozzarella
- Ground Flax Seed – You’ll need ¼ cup of ground flax seed.
- Flour – This recipe uses 1 ¾ cups of all purpose flour. You could also add whole wheat flour – perhaps 1 cup all purpose and ¾ cups whole wheat flour. Or bake them with whole wheat flour for a healthier version.
- Sugar – To sweeten these muffins you can use light brown sugar, coconut sugar or lakanto monkfruit sweetener (it’s sugar-free).
- Other Baking Ingredients – You’ll also need baking soda, baking powder, an egg and some milk.

Serve warm at Sunday brunch with a dollop of butter. These also make easy grab-and-go breakfasts!
How To Store The Muffin Biscuits
These 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. You can store these indefinitely in the freezer, but they tend to taste freshest when gobbled up within 3 months.
