The other day “the boss” aka my 2 1/2 year old woke up informing me that she wanted biscuits. Of course I had every other breakfast food imaginable EXCEPT biscuits. I decided to do a recipe I hadn’t done in a while, bacon-cheese drop biscuits. Except she is a picky little buggar, I knew she wouldn’t touch it with bacon and green onions in them, so I left those ingredients out. But you should keep them in because it’s so delicious! And even better, it’s from Cooking Light! If you’re not dieting, use the regular items (bacon, milk, cheese etc.) and it’ll be extra tasty!
Bacon-Cheese Drop Biscuits
Recipe from: Cooking Light 15-Minute Cookbook
Yield: 16 biscuits – 1 biscuit/serving

1 chopped green onion
1/8 tsp cayenne
3/4 cup fat-free milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place bacon on microwave-safe plate lined with paper towels. Microwave at HIGH for 1.5 minutes, then crumble the bacon.
