Ingredients

  • 1 cup baking mix i.e. Bisquick
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh chives or 1 tsp dry
  • 2 oz cream cheese this measure is APPROXIMATE
  • 1 scallion chopped very finely
  • 8-9 slices of bacon
  • oil for frying

Instructions

  • Mix baking mix and chives together. Add milk and stir until dough forms a ball. Depending on atmospheric conditions, you *may* need a drop or 2 more of milk.
  • Turn dough out on lightly floured surface and knead a few times. Roll out dough about 1/4 inch thick and cut out biscuits. The diameter of my biscuits was about 2 1/2-inches. Cut each biscuit in half.
  • Mix the cream cheese with the chopped scallion. Put about 1 tsp of cream cheese in the center of each biscuit half. Seal the biscuit dough well around the cream cheese and roll into a ball.
  • Cut bacon slices in half. Wrap a half bacon slice around each biscuit ball and secure with skewer.
  • Heat about 2-inches of oil in a deep saucepan to 375 degrees. Fry about 4-5 “bombs” at a time. Fry for about 10 minutes total, turning once. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper-towel covered plate. These may be kept warm in a 200 degree oven while frying subsequent batches.
