Bacon Cheddar Mile High Mini-Batch Biscuits – Hiland Dairy

Bacon Cheddar Mile High Mini-Batch Biscuits

These ‘Mile-High’ biscuits are made extra delicious thanks to the addition of Hiland Bacon Cheddar Dip. Each cheesy biscuit bite is wonderfully light and fluffy with just the right amount of smoky bacon flavor. Be sure to try these out with a little smear of strawberry jam, the sweet and salty combination is pure magic!

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped (divided, saving 1 t for garnish)
  • 1⁄3 cup Hiland COLD unsalted butter, grated
  • 1 cup (4 oz) grated Hiland Colby jack cheese (divided, saving 2 T for garnish)
  • 2⁄3 cup Hiland Bacon Cheddar Dip
  • 1⁄3 cup Hiland whole milk
  • 2 tablespoon Hiland butter, melted


  • Preheat the oven to 425°. Coat a 1⁄4 sheet pan (9×13) with butter.
  • In a medium mixing bowl combine the first 6 ingredients. Once evenly mixed, add the next 4 ingredients, mixing with a fork until the liquid is absorbed into the flour and the texture is shaggy.
  • Turn the biscuit dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it into a 9×9 square, folding onto itself, turning 90° and repeating 10 times.
  • Using a 2′′ cutter, cut biscuits and place onto the prepared baking sheet, 1′′ apart. Re-flour the cutter between cuts.
  • Brush the top of each biscuit with melted butter and sprinkle with reserved grated cheese.
  • Bake 15-18 minutes or until the biscuits are baked through and medium-light golden on top (or an instant read thermometer registers 200°).
  • Makes 6-7 biscuits depending on the size and thickness.
