We started a Pinterest board called Bacon Beckons! a couple weeks ago. I felt like I’ve failed you and our Pinterest followers for not being able to overload that board with some bacon awesomeness sooner, but here I am, bearing a new post that hopefully will redeem myself – I give you Bacon Amazeballs!
There are just too many amazing things about this uber easy recipe that I don’t even know quite where to start. So I’m just going to list the top 4 Amazingness of Bacon Amazeballs that hopefully will make you a believer, that is, if I didn’t have you at “bacon” already 🙂 Here goes:
Amazingness #1. It’s got BACON in it. Need I say more? Duh-uh. Of course it’s going to be amazing! Pre-bake 6-8 strips of bacon with brown sugar and ground pepper. Oh boy, I tell ya it was hard to restrain myself from nibbling away/gulping down those shiny sparkling goodness that just beckons at you when you pull them out of the oven, but I promise you, the wait will be worth it! Crumble the bacon strips into small pieces and set aside.
Amazingness #2. You really only need 3 ingredients: Immaculate Baking® Buttermilk Biscuits, bacon, and cheddar (I used a big cheddar block, but shredded cheddar would also do the trick).
Flavor Amp-Up: I like my bacon with bit of a kick, so I also added chopped jalapeño peppers.
Amazingness #3: It’s a great VALUE, because a single can of our Buttermilk Biscuits will make 16 Bacon Amazeballs! You’ll have plenty enough to go around without the drama of fighting over the last one. Oh okay, who are we kidding? That always happens anyways.
Amazingness #4: It’s IMPOSSIBLY EASY! So easy that I don’t even think I should call it a recipe! Preheat the oven to 350 degree F as instructed on the biscuit can. Pop open a can of Immaculate Baking Buttermilk Biscuits, half each biscuit round, flatten the dough, and start piling on the crushed bacon pieces, cheddar and chopped jalapeño peppers (if desired). Fold over dough to ball up all ingredients. Pop the Amazeballs in the oven and bake as instructed on the can for 16-18 minutes.
Garnish Tip: Quick eggwash over the Amazeball and sprinkle on some white sesame seeds.
And in reward for your 16-18 minutes of patient anticipation, this is what you get:
