Bacon Cheddar Scallion Drop Biscuits

Happy Father’s Day!  I hope you are making something fabulous for the man in your life!  We began the celebration with a satisfying and hearty breakfast, complete with Dad’s favorites: bacon and cheese. 😀  Mr. Pearls + Girls is a big fan of bacon, like most men I know!  A meal is not complete without meat is his foodie mantra.

Is there anything more wonderful than watching your husband play with your children?  It warms my heart to see them kicking around a soccer ball, playing hide and seek, having a tea party, and of course, taking endless horsie rides!  The girls will chant, “Again, again!” and he will always oblige, even after horsie ride number #20 (ish).  P.S.  He also knows the Disney Princess songs by heart and can name all of the My Little Ponies.  He is their hero.

My husband likes no fuss recipes for breakfast, and these easy drop biscuits comes together so quickly!   Today’s version is packed with crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese and scallions.  They are perfect alongside scrambled eggs for breakfast, but would also be fantastic with a bowl of chili for dinner. Enjoy! 😀

    These look scrumptious. Was going to have just plain boring french bread with dinner. I think I will make these instead for Dad!
