Whether you’re preparing snacks for the Super Bowl or breakfast for the family, these bacon-cheddar Hasselback biscuit bites are going to be your new go-to recipe. These bites are versatile and can be eaten with really any meal at any time of the day — because who’s going to say no to bacon?
But the best part might be how easy they are to make. So, you might find yourself making excuses to bake a batch of these … and we can’t say we blame you. Midnight snack, anyone?
Bacon-cheddar Hasselback biscuit bites are exactly what you’d imagine them to be. Similar to Hassleback-style potatoes, they’re thinly sliced along the top to create tiny pockets for wedging things like bacon and cheddar cheese into.
Pillsbury’s recipe for these bites only calls for four ingredients. You’ll need a can of Grands buttermilk biscuits, bacon, cheddar cheese slices and butter.
To create the Hasselback effect, you’ll cut each biscuit into quarters. Then, make three cuts into each quarter, leaving the bottom side intact, as illustrated in this photo:
Then, you’ll put a little piece of bacon and cheese into each of the slices and pop these delicious, savory treats into the oven.
While they’re still hot, brush them with melted butter. The recipe suggests serving these with a side of ranch dressing, but you could also serve them alongside jam, a bowl of chili — the possibilities are practically endless.
