Easy Bacon Cheddar Biscuits

I love a good biscuit. Fluffy, and tender on the inside and buttery on the outside. But what happens when you add cheddar and bacon to a traditional biscuit? Heaven! This biscuit could act as a meal, but it’s great if you want to enjoy with scrambled eggs for a complete meal. This biscuit doesn’t require any rolling pins and is super easy to put together on the weekend. Here are the steps below:
