As I have been helping Faith regularly in the kitchen, I have noticed that recipes requiring many steps tend to frustrate and tire her. So I have been looking for ways to simplify some of them. When I found out that I can purchase Tyson Bacon Pieces at Walmart I thought that would be a great meal solution, way to make this recipe easier for her, and save us the time of frying and chopping bacon. We headed to Walmart to purchase the ingredients for our recipe.
We found Tyson Bacon Pieces in the refrigerated section at Walmart. A 3 oz package is $2.50. To view my entire shop make sure and check out my Google + album!
6 oz cream cheese, softened
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
1 green onion, chopped
1 12 oz package of refrigerated biscuits
1 3 oz package Tyson Bacon Pieces
Pat each biscuit into five inch circles. This was a little challenging for my daughter so I helped her with about half of them to speed up the process. (We made 10 Bacon Cheese Cups with one package of biscuits.)
Add about 1/8 of a cup of the cream cheese filling over the bacon, distributing all the filling evenly if there is some left over. Then sprinkle a heaping teaspoon of bacon on top. We just had a little bacon bits left over! Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 22 minutes or until filling is set and the edges of the biscuits are golden brown.
My daughter said this would make a great food for a tea. She must have been thinking about the Mother Daughter tea we went to for Mother’s Day. I thought that was a great idea! We had a little tea of our own!
The Bacon Cheese Cups were a huge hit with the kiddos tea or no tea. Even my picky four year old ate half of one, green onions and all! Faith ate three of them! This is definitely a recipe we will make again!
This recipe idea was taken from my daughter’s Southern Living Kids Cookbook. She chose the recipe because she thought Bacon Cheese Cups sounded delicious. I agree!
