Bacon Biscuit Cups

These Bacon Biscuit Cups are definite favorites over in our Test Kitchen. Why? Because the smoky flavor along with the creamy texture is simply irresistible!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 (3-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • 1 (12-ounce) can refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • 5 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled, divided
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese, milk, and egg, until blended. Stir in Swiss cheese and scallion; set aside.
  3. Separate biscuits into 10 portions. Pat each portion into a 5-inch circle, and press on bottom and up sides of prepared muffin cups, forming a 1/4-inch crust edge. Sprinkle with half of bacon, and spoon cream cheese mixture on top.
  4. Bake 22 minutes, or until set. Sprinkle with remaining bacon, lightly pressing into filling. Remove immediately from pan, and serve warm.
  • To reheat any leftovers, wrap biscuit cups in foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until warm. (But we bet you won't have any extras!)
  • There's nothing more pleasing than a basket of warm biscuits set on the table! Why not add a batch of our Garlic Cheddar Biscuits to your basket!
  • Got an extra tube of refrigerated biscuits? Not to worry 'cause our collection of 10 Ways with Refrigerated Biscuits will help you find the perfect way to use 'em.

I was thinking that maybe slices of bread buttered side down in the muffin tins might work for this recipe instead of biscuits.

i must be the biggest cluts in the kitchen I thought i would surprise for breakfast the little bacon biscuit thing for family. Well i rolled the little round things out to a little over five inches. placed them with love in the little muffin cups, (what the heck were these people thinking) rolled up th sides as in the picture. Poured the stuff in the cups. I was so excited untilllllllll it started to bake. what these people forgot to note, is that when the dough starts to rise, so does the egg mixture. As a matter of fact it rises to the point where it flows over the top ad ends up in the bottom of my oven. So i am frantic scrapping eggs frying on the bottom of my oven, watching it flow over to even more. So I ended up with almost all of the egg mixture in the bottom of my oven, burnt it, the dough did not get cooked and was a mass of gross dough. What the heck was I doing wrong i would never try this again, you have to be kidding me. Who ever wrote these reviews were out of the office for the product. not again don't try it.

It sounds like you used a MINI muffin pan instead of a regular one. Is that what happened? It's only one egg, I dont see how one egg would overflow 10 muffin cups.

Don't give up on it altogether. Use an oversized muffin pan like used to make the very large muffins sold in bakeries. There is almost always a way to fix the problem. If I were going to make this I would use a deep dish pie plate and more bacon.

don't fill your cup to the top, just 3/4. Always leave room for food to expand. Line your oven racks with aluminum foil. saves cleanup. I place small pans on a cookie sheet. Hope this helps. I use muffin pan all the time because I am cooking for one. I store extra in ziploc bags and take out what I need when I want it.

these were so good and so much fun to make with the kids. everyone loved them. easy food to take on the go for morning rushes...

was just wondering...could one use eggs instead of the cream cheese? I mean still add the cheese to the eggs, would that work?

Looks good, I will be trying this soon.

I am going to try this idea with different fruits. I think it is a great idea, always love anything with cheese. Thank you!

iwillmakethese today they sound very good
