On my recent trip to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, I ate breakfast at Sunliner Diner. It is a fun 50s style diner with delicious food. Looking over the menu I spotted a Bacon Cheddar Biscuit. I have a weakness for all things bacon and ranch, so it immediately caught my eye. THEN I saw it also had ranch. Bacon + Cheddar + Ranch = Crack!!! I had to get it.
The biscuit at Sunliner Diner was so good. It wasn’t very pretty, but it was really delicious. I was dying for the recipe. I was with someone that knew the owner of the restaurant, and they were able to get me the ACTUAL recipe from the Sunliner Diner chef! OMG!!!
I made these Crack Buttermilk Biscuits last weekend and they were AMAZING! I’m not going to lie. I think mine were better than the original. The Sunliner Diner biscuit maker better watch out! I’m gunning for their job! LOL!
I was surprised at how easy these Crack Buttermilk Biscuits were to make. They only took a few minutes and they were ready to bake. I used White Lily self-rising flour. I also used some precooked chopped bacon (I buy it in bulk from Costco) to cut down on the prep time. Also note that this recipe uses room temperature butter, not cold butter like some other biscuit recipes.
They key to getting pretty and flaky biscuits is to fold the dough over on top of itself a few times before cutting. I didn’t use a rolling pin. I just used my hands and patted the dough into a 1-1/2 inch square. Make sure when you roll out the scraps to fold it over a few times. I didn’t do this on one of my rolls and you could definitely tell which biscuit I didn’t fold the dough over enough. It spread and wasn’t pretty. It still tasted fine though!
These Crack Buttermilk Biscuits are great anytime of the day. They are good plain or stuffed with an egg and more bacon. I got a dozen 3-inch biscuits. Great for a crowd! They are also good reheated the next day. I cannot wait to make these again!!! A big THANK YOU to Sunliner Diner for sharing their recipe!
