"8/29/09: Very good! Easy to make and wonderful flavor and texture. My daughter had bought a package of pepper bacon that needed to be used up so I chose this recipe. Since there was pepper on the bacon, I left out the 1 teaspoon pepper. I did not have buttermilk so substituted non-fat plain yogurt. I only had salted butter so I reduced the salt to a little less than 1/2 teaspoon. I used an ice cream scoop and scooped the biscuits onto a Silpat placed on a cookie sheet. Using the ice cream scoop, I ended up with 8 biscuits. Baked for 12 minutes. Yummy! Thank you for the recipe. Update 8/22/10: These are wonderful biscuits which we enjoy often. I have now made bacon-cheddar, bacon-scallion, and bacon-cheddar-scallion. With the additional ingredients I get 10-12 biscuits."
"Totally delish and divine SusieQ!!! I made a batch of these today and I am making another batch tomorrow, when I will take photos - batteries were flat today!! I have a request for them again - so you can see how good they were! I left the sugar out and also the salt, as we had quite salty Lardons - bacon. I had to sub the buttermilk for natural yoghurt - but it worked very well. Excellent and EASY PEASY recipe! Made for Aussie Swap #14 - what a GREAT team I had! FT:-)"
"These were amazing. I used turkey bacon but I followed everything else as written and they turned out beautiful. Everyone in the family loved them and they were all gone before any of them could really cool off. Thank you for sharing."
"Yummy biscuits! I used turkey bacon. They were a little more gooey than I think they needed to be as they didn't pull away from the side, but I think that was my fault with not letting the butter cool enough. Thanks, Susie! :D"
