For this recipe, I used Hatfield Thick Cut Hardwood Smoked Bacon which gives a lovely crunch and a smoky flavor to this dish.

I have been using Hatfield products for a long time now because I really like the fact they believe in delivering high-quality food to their customers. Hatfield is family owned, American made and committed to sustaining American family farms. Hatfield Pork is Pork With a Pledge, which means it is ethically raised, no hormones or steroids added and raised without growth promotants.

I got my Hatfield Bacon from my local ACME but you can get them at various retailers. Click here to see which retailer in your area carries their products.

Easy Cheesy Hatfield Bacon Bombs

Ingredients

  • Hatfield Bacon - 8 strips (I used Thick Cut Hardwood Smoked Bacon)
  • Store bought biscuit dough - 1 packet (12 oz.)
  • Mozzarella cheese - 4 oz.

Instructions

  1. Remove the biscuit dough from the packaging and cut each biscuit into half.
  2. Cut mozzarella cheese into about 1/2 inch pieces. Stuff the inside the biscuit dough and roll it into balls.
  3. Cut the bacon strips into half and wrap it around the cheese stuffed balls and secure it with a skewer. You can even wrap the entire bacon strip around the biscuit dough but working with a half strip is much easier as the biscuit has a better chance to expand while getting cooked.
  4. Deep fry them in 350°F oil for about 3-5 minutes or until the bacon and biscuit is fully cooked. You can dip them in the hot oil with the skewers attached so that the bacon won't unwrap itself while it's getting cooked.

Notes

Important Tip: 1. Deep frying method works best for this dish as shallow frying takes a longer time and can cause the mozzarella cheese to ooze out of the biscuit dough while it's getting fried.

2.Fry one or two at a time as the biscuit tends to expand and you want enough space in your pan for it do so.

    How inventive and delicious, hope to try this year! Every Easter we bake paskas (Easter bread in Ukrainian) that’s a very delicate procedure that takes energy and skills. In advertising my book that is going to be published approximately in one or two months (editing is ready, now we are working on illustrations) I shall say that I will share many interesting cultural things about Ukraine and our Eastern Orthodox Easter that might be a bit different! Aren’t you interested?

    Do you think this would cook in an air fryer?

      Hi Amanda, I haven’t tried to make these in the air fryer but you can definitely try making these in it. Just keep an eye out and make sure the cheese doesn’t ooze out from inside. I would suggest putting just one or two to make sure they are getting cooked properly. I hope this helps.

Thanks for reading. I would love to hear what you think
