Bacon + Cake Pop Maker = Bacon Pop Biscuits! I also added egg and cheese to some of them! My oven broke recently - and I thought I was getting it fixed last week. So, I bought some biscuit dough from the store - the stuff in a long tube. Turns out, my oven didn't get fixed. Another issue - my son doesn't like eggs very much. So, I thought of using the biscuit dough in the cake pop maker, with some bacon, eggs and cheese- and it was a huge hit among my son, nephew and myself!

It's very simple to make! The great thing about the cake pop maker is that it only takes 3-5 minutes per batch of 12 pops!

Items Needed:
  • Baby Cakes Maker
  • Biscuit Dough in a tube (or homemade)
  • Bacon (I used turkey bacon that was Fully Cooked & Cured - got it from Aldis)
  • Eggs & Cheese are optional
To Make the Bacon Pops:
  • Open up the biscuit dough tube and you should see the dough in slices. Take out the slices and cut each one in half twice (giving you four pieces per slice). You can leave it as it is or put it in your hand to roll it into more of a ball shape to start with.
  • If you want to have eggs with these, then crack a couple eggs into a bowl and wisk - set aside.
  • Take out your bacon and cut the pieces in half or 3rds.
  • Place the pieces of dough onto the bacon and add cheese if you like. 
  • Prepare the 12 pieces and get it ready to put into the Baby Cakes maker.
  • Transfer to Baby Cakes maker and if you want to add egg, carefully pour a small amount into each one and then quickly fold the bacon over to cover the pop.
  • Close the Baby Cakes maker and let it cook for 3-5 minutes.

That's all! Repeat the process to make more - and enjoy them!

Awesome idea and a great idea for a kid's breakfast. My daughter is so picky with breakfast foods. This looks fun enough to make her forget it's breakfast. One question: The bacon totally cooks? I'd be afraid it'd be raw in spots.
HollyMann (author)  kaboom9491 year ago
I understand about picky kids! :) Well, the bacon I bought was from Aldis and it was Turkey Bacon that was fully cooked and cured (it actually didn't look cooked to me - wasn't dried out like the regular fully cooked stuff I used to buy). It cooked really fast and was nice and crispy. When I have time I will try it with regular uncooked bacon - since it is the part of the pop that is in direct contact with the heat source - I think it would fully cook. But I will try it and let you know. If you can get something like what I used - that would work well. I couldn't taste the difference between it and regular bacon, other than it was less greasy.

These look and sound delicious I bet they smelled good too... And I just got one of those cake pop maker too! I have to give this one a try.. I hope you get the stove working I know how it feel to be without one of the main appliances in the house. I had a fridge die on me and it's not fun when you have meat and other foods to keep cold while getting the problem fixed.. Hope it all turns out ok for you Holly. Thanks =)

Yes they did smell and taste good! I like doing things differently - esp breakfast..I get sick of the same old thing! It is a pain without the stove working...eventually it will be fixed. :) Thanks for the comment - so great hearing from you!
