Lazy Baker Cheddar and Bacon Potato Biscuit Bread

Lazy Baker Cheddar and Bacon Potato Biscuit Bread

I love biscuits. What’s not to love about a biscuit? All that flaky-tender goodness in a little round package! But I’m a lazy baker. I really don’t like to turn out dough or cut out biscuits, and I HATE to clean up the counters after making any kind of rolled out dough. It’s such a mess!

One day when I was craving some biscuits I decided to try a “lazy baker” method and just put the finished dough in a baking pan. I was really happy with how they turned out. The first time I made Cheddar and Bacon Potato Biscuit Bread they came out a bit salty. So I played around with the recipe until I found the perfect combination of dough, cheddar, and bacon to create a moist “biscuit” bread. It has a texture similar to a cornbread and is especially delicious topped with Cottage Lane Kitchen’s spicy pepper relish! One of my most favorite condiments! Really, I put that delicious concoction on nearly everything!

I loved how easy and mess-free it was to make this dough with my Ankarsrum Original Stand Mixer. It has a powerful and quiet 600-watt motor and this awesome roller with a separate scraper that simultaneously mixes the dough and scrapes the sides of the mixing bowl! Because the top of the mixer is open, it makes adding ingredients super easy and MESS FREE! If you want to check out the Ankarsrum Original Stand Mixer for yourself, take a look here.

Recipe Notes

If you want to make biscuits instead of bread, use a 3-ounce scoop, portion 16 biscuits onto a parchment covered sheet pan about 2 inches apart. If desired, brush tops with a little cream and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. The biscuits freeze nicely.
