A little bit of bacon goes a long way with taste…
If you love the taste of bacon but you’re trying to cut back on such high-fat cured meats in your diet, Bacon Pie is a quick and easy brunch idea that goes a long way to satisfy that bacon craving.
This recipe makes two biscuit-based “pies” so it easily serves 6 people – but works out to only one slice of bacon for each.
See? You can indulge a taste for bacon, without blowing a healthy diet!
5 – 6 slices of bacon, cooked (not too crisp)
Basic biscuit recipe (dry ingredients only — or 2 cups of a commercial biscuit mix)
¾ cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
½ tsp dry mustard
½ – ⅓ cup milk
½ – ¾ cup plain yogurt
Pre-heat oven to 425°F. Grease two standard-sized pie plates (I use a bit of the bacon fat for this).
Combine the biscuit mix, grated cheese, mustard and milk to make a soft dough. Knead about 30 seconds on a lightly floured board. Divide the dough in half and spread each half into one of the greased pie plates.
Crumble the cooked bacon on top.
Combine the egg and yogurt, and spread this over the pies to cover the bacon.
Bake 15 minutes at 425°F.
Cut into wedges and serve warm – great for brunch or lunch with a nice green salad on the side.
