Bacon Cream Cheese Biscuits make for an unforgettable breakfast or brunch. Your family and guests will be impressed when you serve these tender, flakey cheese and bacon filled biscuits. They make terrific snacks too, just like crab & cheese filled crescent rolls!
Because cream cheese biscuits are so satisfying and delicious, the rest of your meal can be super simple. Serve them along with coffee, tea, and juice for an easy Continental breakfast. Or, serve with scrambled eggs and a fresh fruit salad for a complete meal if you want to get elaborate.
How to Make Cheese Biscuits
Most versions of cheese biscuits involve putting grated cheese right in the dough. And for this quick and easy cheese biscuit recipe, it starts with canned biscuit dough!
Fry the bacon, drain and crumble.
Combine softened cream cheese with garlic powder, onion, parmesan, and crumbled bacon.
Place a spoonful of the cheese mixture in the center of each biscuit, and fold edges together and pinch to seal.
Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, top the biscuits with the shredded cheddar and bake until golden brown and the topping is toasted.
Choosing fresh ingredients and being thoughtful about any substitutions will result in the most amazing bacon cream cheese biscuits! You can substitute asiago or Romano for the parmesan and Colby, Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack for the cheddar if you prefer. It will give you a cheddar cheese biscuit with a flavorful kick!
To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
2 cans of crescent rolls (you can use biscuits too)
Cheese (Whatever type you like)
12oz or 16oz package of bacon, cooked
flour for dusting (optional)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Lightly flour your work surface.
Unroll one can of crescent rolls (or 1/2 can of biscuits) on your work surface. Using your hands or a rolling pin, press the seams together and lightly press & stretch a little into a nice rectangle.
Add a layer of cheese
Add a layer of bacon.
Unroll the remaining can of crescent rolls on top & press all the seems together both on top and all around.
Using a pizza cutter or a knife (I prefer a pizza cutter personally) slice into squares.
Place on a Baking Sheet so the squares are touching.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top of the crescent rolls are lightly browned. Remove from the oven & cool on a wire rack for 3-5 minutes.
