Bacon grease is a delicious secret ingredient that you can add to virtually any everyday recipe to create a brand-new flavor that will shock your taste-buds. Bacon is already a well-loved staple at the breakfast table and we’re excited to take another morning dish to the next-level. We’ve got a recipe for BACON UP Biscuits that will leave your whole family starting their day with a smile on their face and singing your culinary praises.
The recipe for these biscuits is much like any other, but with one key difference: adding John Gordon’s BACON UP Bacon Grease to the mixture. Our bacon grease is the secret ingredient that will make these biscuits taste out of this world. Your children’s friends will be begging you to make them the morning after every sleepover. And your family will want you to serve these up at every holiday gathering.
The best part of this recipe is that other than the Bacon Up, it uses ingredients that are staples of baking and are most likely already sitting in your kitchen. You don’t have to buy a pantry full of expensive ingredients for your dish to taste like it just came out of the oven of a five-star restaurant. You can get the upscale taste by adding Bacon Up Bacon Grease to ingredients you already have.
Check out the simple list of ingredients:
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 4 tsp. of baking powder
- ¼ tsp. of baking soda
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 tsp of sugar
- 4 tbsp of Bacon Up bacon grease
- ¾ to 1 cup of cold whole buttermilk
This recipe will make a great addition to your family’s cookbook and is even simple enough for kids to make. After they help you once they should be able to whip them up on their own, making it a great starter recipe for young bakers. These biscuits may very well go from a fun childhood memory to something they end up passing along to their own children!
But Wait…There’s More!
Of course you know bacon grease is wonderful for frying, but that’s not its only claim to fame. As you’ve seen in this biscuit recipe, you can also use it as a substitute for butter or shortening. It’s an easy swap that will makes a delicious difference in the end, adding a rich, complexity that can take so many recipes to “Next-Level Flavor,” as we like to say! Bacon Up is something that will help all your dishes stand out – and may even become your “culinary calling card” that family and friends begin to associate with you!
