This Bacon Biscuit Balls recipe is preserved from and listed in Recipes From the Old South. I have slightly changed the recipe as, in my experience, it works better if the bacon is chopped prior to fryin.
I would have purchased this vintage recipe book regardless – but opening it up to this very first treat solidified my decision. I’m not sure you can get much better than bacon.
Don’t forget to use a bacon press for more evenly cooked bacon.
