If you could combine every food you love into one biscuit, what would you add to the mix? Guacamole? Pizza? Burgers? Ice cream?
For me, such a combination would probably make a really gross biscuit. But these Sweet Potato and Bacon Biscuits
are a pretty close substitute, and they taste good, too!
The thing I love about biscuits is the effort-to-reward ratio. It’s easy to make a mouthwatering, yummy biscuit recipe. You won’t believe that just 20 minutes after starting, they’re fully baked and ready to eat! There isn’t even a “wait to cool” time, which is a selling point for us impatient eaters.
I’d never really thought to combine the sweet, mellow flavor of sweet potatoes with the crisp saltiness of bacon, but in a buttermilk biscuit, it works very well. The softness and buttery texture of the biscuit is the perfect complement to the pieces of crunchy bacon peppered throughout. Split open warm and served with an extra pat of butter, they are delicious for breakfast or as a fancy dinner roll.
Plus, anything with bacon is better, right? I think so.
