Tomorrow is A-Day here in Alabama. For you non-college football fans, A-Day is the spring football game for Auburn and Alabama. It seems like just yesterday we were watching all the National Champtionship game! I know everyone is itching to get back to the stadium and tailgate with friends and family. We certainly are! Here is a great recipe for your tailgate this weekend - Bacon Cheeseburger Puffs. All the flavors of a bacon cheeseburger in bite-size form. The best part is they taste delicious! These puffs can be made in advance and frozen until you need them. They are not only a great tailgating snack, they are wonderful for lunch, dinner.
In a skillet, cook and crumble ground beef until no longer pink; drain. In a bowl, combine biscuit mix, bacon and cheese; stir in cooked beef. Add buttermilk and toss with a fork until just moistened. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. (I used a medium cookie scoop) Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
Baked puffs may be frozen; reheat at 400 degrees F for 7-9 minutes or until heated through (they do not need to thawed first).
