I have been known to watch Sunny Anderson on the Food Network. She has some fun recipes. She is also this month’s Avatar Chef for several of us. Each month one of us chooses a chef/cook and we all choose a recipe to cook/blog and use the pic as our avatar on Twitter. Last month Nancy chose Delia Smith. January we had Donna Hay, Kayte’s choice. This month the choice was Peggy’s.

I wanted something Quick, easy and tasty and after looking through Sunny’s top 100 on FoodTV this one just jumped out and said, “PICK ME!”

And they were SOO good. Just the right amount of cheddar cheese, and bacon, with paprika, onion. I left off the onion because we were making them for breakfast.


    2 cups flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    Kosher salt
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    8 strips bacon, cooked until crispy and crumbled
    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    1 egg

Heat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large bowl add the flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, paprika, and onion powder. Mix to blend then make a well in the center of the bowl and add the milk, butter, bacon and cheese. Mix gently with a wooden spoon. The dough will be wet and sticky. Using a 1/4 cup measure or ice cream scoop, portion the batter onto a baking sheet, leaving an inch or so around each biscuit.

In a small bowl, beat the egg with a splash of water and then brush this mixture on the top of each biscuit. Bake in the oven until the biscuits are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of one comes out clean, 20 to 22 minutes.

These were delicious. I could make and devour them every week for breakfast. or with dinner or as a snack!!
