Cheddar Bacon Biscuit BLT #KraftyCooking

BLT Cheddar Bacon Biscuits
This post is part of a case study for +Google on brand awareness. I was not compensated in any way from Google or Kraft for this post. All opinions are my own. *

Cheddar and bacon are a classic combination. BLT sandwiches are for bacon lovers. Combine the two and you’re in bacon heaven!
I first made cheddar biscuits as part of a Twelve Days of Christmas Brunch layout I did for Fresh Magazine. As good as those biscuits were alone or as a sandwich bread, I thought I could make it better with bacon. Bacon makes everything better right? I know that when it comes to bacon it is hard, but remember in moderation, people!
For my cheddar bacon blt I added bacon to the biscuit and a little bacon fat to moisten the texture. Why stop there? I served it with Horseradish Mayo. You could add bacon bits to this too, crazy good right?
Of course you could make a lighter version with reduced-fat options. Even turkey bacon would taste great!

    Cut in cold butter with a pastry cutter or fork until small beads form.

    Your dough should look like this with bits of butter visible.
