CHEESY BACON & JALAPEÑO BISCUITS

May 15, 2014

My love for cheesy biscuits is a long told story. Although science and common sense would say otherwise, I’m not sure it is possibly to stuff too much cheddar into a biscuit. And I think we all know there’s only one reason worth dining at Red Lobster (and it’s not the kitschy seaman’s decor!). Adding bacon and jalapeño to these made them that much more sensational. And that much more Dave-approving. But, I won’t act like it was all for Dave. I loved these. In fact, (today’s my birthday and) I can think of nothing I’d like for breakfast more.

PS: For tummies sensitive to spice, I de-seeded my jalapeño.
