Maple Bacon Sticky Biscuits

This is a recipe from King Arthur Flour Company with some modifications. I made it tonight to see if it will be good enough to take to a Breakfast at Twilight potluck Wednesday evening. We decided it's good enough.

1/2 pound bacon, cooked until medium-brown
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter

If using pecans instead of bacon, use more butter.

Biscuits

2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
(1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) cold butter or shortening
1 cup cold milk or cold buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 475°F (lower if not using bacon). Lightly grease an 8" square or 9" round pan; whichever size you choose, make sure it's at least 2" deep, to prevent any boil-over. Line with parchment paper and grease.

2) Syrup: 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.

3) Biscuits: Whisk the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

4) Work in the butter until the mixture is crumbly; some larger, pea-sized pieces of butter may remain intact.

5) Add the milk or buttermilk, stirring to make a sticky dough.

6) Drop the dough in heaping tablespoonfuls atop the syrup in the pan. A tablespoon cookie scoop, slightly overfilled, works well here.

7) Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes. Turn the oven off, and leave them in the oven for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until they're golden brown.

8) 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.

Sounds good, a little like old fashioned butter rolls.

You know how things are now-a-days - bacon, bacon, bacon.

Mmmmm...I love maple syrup, bacon, sticky foods and biscuits. Dam! I just put my elbow in a puddle of drool.

The house ends up smelling really good after cooking that bacon.

Geez, this was looking good, but it sure looks like work for the inexperienced.

You could make the candied bacon and eat it with a spoon, skip the biscuit dough.
