Steps To Make Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit Casserole:
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and generously grease a 9×13 inch (3 quart) baking dish.
Step 2: In a skillet, over low heat cook the bacon until it reaches your desired level of crispness. Take out the bacon place it on a plate lined with paper towels and dab off any grease with another paper towel.
Step 3: Cut the bacon into pieces measuring about half an inch. Set them aside.
Step 4: Divide each piece of biscuit dough into four parts. Arrange them in a single layer within the prepared baking dish.
Step 5: Sprinkle the chopped bacon. Thinly sliced onions on top of the biscuit dough.
Step 6: In a bowl whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, garlic powder, onion powder, dry ground mustard, salt and black pepper until all the ingredients are well combined.
Step 7: Pour this egg mixture over the biscuit dough and other ingredients in the baking dish. Gently stir everything together to ensure that all parts of the biscuit dough are evenly coated with the egg mixture.
Step 8: Bake for 30 minutes; at this point, you may notice that the casserole is not completely firm, in its center.
Step 9: Evenly distribute the cheddar cheese on top of the casserole and bake it for another 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese is melted the eggs are cooked and the biscuits turn a golden brown.
Step 10: Take out the casserole from the oven and let it rest for about 5 to 10 minutes. Afterward, slice it up. Serve your creation infused with bacon and loaded with cheesy goodness.
For achieving crispy bacon without the mess and hassle-free of frying it on the stovetop you can try baking the bacon in the oven before adding it to your casserole. Start by lining a baking sheet, with parchment paper and arrange the bacon slices, in a layer. Bake them at 375°F (190°C) for around 15 to 20 minutes. Until they reach your desired level of crispiness. This method ensures that your bacon is evenly cooked and reduces grease in your casserole resulting in a crunchier and more delicious bacon topping.
