Love maple, bacon, and all things bread?  Then you'll love these Maple Bacon Biscuits – A Ruby Tuesday Copycat!  How can you go wrong with maple syrup, cheddar cheese, and bacon?!?
Maple Bacon Biscuits Copycat Recipe

One of the downfalls of having a husband that travels is learning about all these neat recipes he tries at restaurants we don't have anywhere near us.  I'm pretty good at replicating a recipe I've had a few times, but trying to make something I've never had?  That's a bit of a challenge!  After my husband was raving about these Maple Bacon Biscuits he'd had at a Ruby Tuesday, I really wanted to try one though!

Since I don't see myself visiting one anytime soon, I did the next best thing – headed to the internet to look for copycat recipes.  After reading through dozens, taking notes from the comments, and a lot of experimenting in the kitchen (for which my husband didn't mind being the taste tester for each batch at all!), he finally proclaimed this version a success!

Ruby Tuesday Copycat Recipe: Maple Bacon Biscuits
Recipe type: Bread
  • 5 slices bacon
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 3¼ cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 stick butter (8 tablespoons)
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Fry the bacon and let it cool.
  3. Chop it into pieces and place in a bowl.
  4. Pour the maple syrup over the top.
  5. Keep the bacon grease. You might want to place it in the freezer for a few minutes to chill because you’ll need it for the biscuits.
  6. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  7. Dice the butter into half inch cubes and add to the dry mixture, along with the chilled bacon drippings & shredded cheese
  8. Combine until you have a crumbly mixture. You can use your hands, a fork, or a pastry cutter. Because your hands are warm and will melt the butter, it’s often better to use a pastry cutter or a fork.
  9. Add the buttermilk and bacon syrup mixture. Combine.
  10. Now you can roll your dough onto a well floured surface and use a biscuit cutter to make your biscuits, or you can make drop biscuits.
  11. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
