Surprise Biscuits

Everyone should have a good quick drop biscuit in their culinary wheelhouse. I typically do rolled biscuits, but when I saw a photo of a biscuit with an egg surprise inside, I decided to give it a try. And I added in fresh thyme and bacon for good measure!


Ingredients makes 6

  • 1/2 C (1 stick) cold butter, cubed
  • 1-1/2 C flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 3/4 C cold buttermilk
  • 6 hardboiled eggs, peeled
  • 1/3 C bacon, cooked and crumbled with 1 T bacon fat reserved

Procedure
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Toss butter cubes into the flour mix. Use your fingers to rub butter into the flour.

Pour in buttermilk, bacon fat, and bacon crumbles. Stir with a fork until it just comes together into a slightly sticky dough.


Using a tablespoon scoop, mound walnut-sized balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Press a hardboiled egg into the center.


Place another mound of dough on top and form a layer around the egg.


Bake biscuits until golden brown, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly, then transfer to wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
