For those mornings when you wake up smelling bacon frying in your mind . . . these biscuits provide a moist cheese and bacon flavored carrier for your favorite bacon slices (and whatever else you want to pile on the "sandwich.") I enjoyed mine last weekend with a dollop of homemade strawberry-fig preserves. This is a way to have that great bacon flavor in the bread without having to chop up bacon and put it into the dough.
The current trend of bacon bacon bacon got me thinking. Everyone knows the salty, smoky, rich flavor of bacon goes great with the addition of a heavy sweetness like brown sugar or molasses. I was more curious than anything else in developing this sweet and bacony baklava!
