Bacon Bombs


We do a large bacon bomb for dinner once in a while, but these little bacon bombs are adorable and a nice little snack. Bacon is all the rage right now, I mean, I guess it always has been, but now we're seeing it on t-shirts and hats too. Anyway, try this recipe at your next family gathering, it is sure to be a hit!

For these Bacon Bombs, you'll need:

Bacon Bombs
  • 1 cup baking mix/Bisquick
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 tbs minced fresh chives
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 scallion, chopped very finely
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • oil for frying
  1. Add milk to baking mix and stir until dough forms a ball.
  2. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface a few times. Roll dough out to
  3. /4 inch thick & cut out biscuits, then cut each biscuit in half.
  4. Mix the cream cheese with the chopped scallion & chives. Place about 1 tsp of cream cheese in the center of each biscuit piece. Seal the dough around the cream cheese and roll into a ball.
  5. Cut bacon slices in half. Wrap a half bacon slice around each biscuit ball and secure with skewer or toothpick.
  6. Heat about 2-inches of oil in a deep saucepan to 375 degrees. Fry about 4-5 "bombs" at a time. Fry for about 10 minutes total, turning once. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper-towel covered plate. These may be kept warm in a 200 degree oven while frying subsequent batches.
