Savory Biscuit Poppers
2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
1/3 cup diced cooked bacon (or use pre-cooked bacon)
4 medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 T olive oil
1/4 cup diced bell pepper
1/8 t. fresh ground black pepper
(if you like them even more 'savory' add chopped canned jalapeños ... to taste)
Heat oven to 450°. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Stir Bisquick mix, milk, cheese, bacon, bell pepper, pepper, olive oil, and onions until soft dough forms.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until golden brown. Brush butter over warm biscuits. Serve with salsa if desired.
All I know. Christmas Eve is upon us.
Merry Christmas to all!
