I was recently asked to try the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Deliciously Simple™ spread. This new spread has a creamy, buttery taste and is made with simple ingredients like non-fat yogurt and vegetable oil. Sounds good, right? I was glad to see that Deliciously Simple is made with ingredients I recognize and I was really excited to try it out!
I decided that I wanted to use Deliciously Simple™ on a breakfast dish. We Southerners know how to make a killer breakfast. (I'm actually a Jersey girl transplant, but we moved when I was in 5th grade, so in most cases I declare myself a southern girl. Especially when it comes to cooking.)
When I think of good ol' down-home Southern breakfast food, biscuits are what come to mind. Not just the old hockey puck kind of biscuit, though. I'm talkin' about tender buttermilk biscuits. I put a twist on my favorite recipe and came up with these soul-satisfying Bacon Biscuits.
Oh yeah, baby. There's crispy bacon baked right into these guys.
An entire pound of bacon.
You read that right. And I don't feel a bit giulty about it either. Everything feels very zen about delicious little bits of bacon in every single bite. I didn't name them Bacon Biscuits for nothing.
I put some salty pecorino romano cheese in them, too. Because this girl loves her cheese. I made the dough, mixed in the bacon and cheese, baked them up to golden perfection, then topped them with the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Deliciously Simple™ spread.
They were so unbelievably good. I, along with my son and daughter, polished off a half dozen of them when they were right out of the oven. Deliciously Simple™ had the perfect creamy texture for the hot flakey biscuits. (If you know anything about biscuits, you know how frustrating it can be when your trying to spread on a topper and the biscuit just falls apart!). The flavor was great (the same creamy taste you know and love) and it complimented the biscuits perfectly.
I can see I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Deliciously Simple™ being good for so many dishes, sweet and savory, like grilled cheese, garlic bread, waffles, dinner rolls and bagels. I know my daughter will be happy with how easy it is to spread onto her favorite French Toast. She's four and LOVES to help Mom in the kitchen. With 100% Taste and 0% Artificial Preservatives, we give the new Deliciously Simple™ by ICBINB a thumbs up...especially spread onto these sinfully fabulous Southern Bacon Biscuits!
