Cheesy Bacon Bombs

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!

    Can these be baked?

      I suppose you could attempt that…but the bacon won’t be as crispy most likely. It would obviously be a healthier option, so if you try that out, please let me know how they turn out. I’m curious now 🙂

    Aww. 🙁
    mine didnt come out so great. Well..A few did.
    I only had grape seed oil. Could that be why?
    my bacon seemed to cook too fast…faster than the dough.
    I also did not have any tooth picks, but managed to start them with the folded side down . That helped them stay closed.
    Also i chose to use half a slice of thick cut bacon so that i could make more.
    I also quarted my bisquits. Lol any suggestions?
    also!, i loooove my bacon in the oven. I saw a previous question about making theae in the oven so please post an Update on how that goes. I will be trying this again tomorrow.

      The grapeseed oil shouldn’t have mattered. Do you have a high accuracy feed thermometer (like a Thermapen) and checked to make sure your oil was around the 350° mark? Perhaps your oil was way too hot?

      As for baking, check out the comments in the comment section of the video on YouTube b/c there are some people talking about that.

      Let me know how it goes.

    Definitely going to try these! We make chicken bacon bombs! If you haven’t tried them, you need to!
    3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I cut mine in half and pounded them flat)
    1 lb bacon
    1 cup bbq sauce
    1/2 cup brown sugar

    Pound out the chicken with a mallet.
    After chicken is thin, cut it into 1-2″ wide strips.
    Cut the package of bacon in half.
    Take the 1/2 strip of bacon and lay a strip of chicken on top of it.
    Roll the bacon/chicken up and secure with a toothpick.
    Repeat until all the chicken is gone.
    Place the chicken/bacon rolls on a cooke sheet.
    Top the chicken with brown sugar.
    Top the chicken with BBQ sauce.
    Cook for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
    Turn them over and cook again another 10-15 minutes or until cooked through. Enjoy!

    I’m so in love with this idea, definitely going to have to try make these on the weekend.
    My fiancee’s family are huge bacon fanatics, so might use these for a party, lol.
    Got a feeling my father-in-law will love that.

      Any biscuit dough should work just fine.
