Maple-Bacon Biscuit Bake

It was 18 degrees this morning - perfect excuse to put the oven on, make the kitchen toasty warm, and whip up the easiest, tastiest "sticky biscuits" you'll ever enjoy.


1/2 lb. bacon, cooked until medium-brown
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter


2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup cold, unsalted butter
1 cup cold milk or buttermilk

Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.  Lightly grease an 8" square pan.
Chop the cooked bacon into 1/2" pieces.  Combine the bacon with the remaining syrup ingredients, stirring until well combined.  Spread in the bottom of the prepared pan.
Whisk the dry ingredients for the biscuits together in a bowl.  Work in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.  Add the milk or buttermilk, stirring to make a sticky dough.

Drop the dough in heaping tablespoonfuls on top of the syrup in the pan.  Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes.  Turn the oven off, and leave them in the oven for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until golden.

Remove the biscuits from the oven, and immediately turn the pan over onto a serving plate.  Lift off the pan, and scrape any syrup left in the pan onto the biscuits.  Pull biscuits apart to serve.

Cooks Note:  These do harden up a bit when cool.  Just pop in the microwave to 20-25 seconds to warm them.  You could also use 2 Tbsp. of the bacon fat instead of the butter in the syrup............just saying......:o)
