A friend of mine posted a recipe for “Cheesy Bacon Bombs” on my Facebook page that’s been going viral. It’s quick, easy and incredibly tasty. The recipe is as simple as it gets and the results are dangerous…depending on how many you eat 🙂 Here’s all ya have to do:
1 can (8 ct.) Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits
1 block of mozzarella cheese
1 package of bacon (I suggest thick cut bacon)
Toothpicks or larger wooden skewers
Oil (I used Canola, but you could use vegetable oil as well)
The original recipe for this calls for smaller squares of the cheese, so I changed it up a bit by cutting larger squares and using 1/2 pieces of the raw biscuits instead of 1/4’s. Regardless, the aim of this is to wrap the cheese block in raw biscuit, then wrap it in a piece of bacon and fry it in 350° oil until all sides are nice and golden brown. Set on paper towels to drain and cool for a few minutes.
As good as these were, you can easily see how you could let your imagination run wild with this simple recipe. I’m thinking off adding a piece of jalapeño, maybe mixing up the kind of cheese you use and hit it with a bit of raspberry preserves for a bit of sweetness on the finish. Try your own and let me know in the comments below what come up with! Pics and video below. Enjoy!
