Let me just take a sec and tell you how these Bacon Cheddar Buns or, hurry the hell up buns, came about. So I got invited by a friends’ place for a backyard cookout a few weekends ago, and I promised her that I would bring something for the meal. Cool right? Yeah, until you FORGET you said you’d bring something. OMG! I couldn’t believe myself! So young, cute, and yet so forgetful 🙂 (wink) Ok so what was I to do? I literally had less than an hour to prepare something. Quick and easy was the name of the game here. I scoured the fridge for what I had and came up with these Bacon Cheddar Buns!! Wholy amazeballs, these were a HIT!! Had I known how well they were going to go over, I would have doubled the batch. Seriously.
Bacon Cheddar Buns (aka, hurry the hell up buns)
I set the oven to preheat for 350. Quickly (like a hyper-quick Wonder Woman), I quickly gathered some cooked left over bacon from a dish I made earlier, (See that amazing cheesy creations here. )some green onions, and some cheddar cheese. To make speed up the process even quicker, I used the good ole’ stand by Bisquick. Now, you certainly don’t need to use it if you have more time. You can make your own biscuit mix, but I needed to perform some magic here and turn out these glorious buns in record time, so the Bisquick won.
I minced the bacon and the green onions, quickly shredded the cheese and set them aside. I put the Bisquick in a bowl, added the water and mixed in the bacon, cheddar, onion and some spices – garlic, salt and pepper. Mixed it up quick like a bunny! (if bunnies could mix stuff up.)
Then, I dropped those cuties on a lined baking sheet and literally threw them in the oven while I ran off to fix my face and hair. I baked them for 12 minutes (yep! Just 12 minutes). Then…… ting!! I quickly checked them out. They all had beautiful golden tops! I had a fast 3 minutes to spare, so I grated a bit more cheese on the top and closed the oven door, letting the residual heat melt the cheese all gooey like!
Finally, my last-minute masterpieces were done! I was so proud of myself, and I may have looked like a whirling dervish in the kitchen, but dammit, I deserved an applause! Haha!
I was able to get to my friends bbq ON TIME, and because the buns that I brought were still nice and warm, all of a sudden, I was Julia Child. Everyone LOVED these super easy bacon cheddar buns! I didn’t tell them that I made them last-minute because of my forgetfulness, however, if they’re reading this they know NOW! I hope the tastiness will outweigh the forgetfulness and I’ll be forgiven. Eeeeek!!
Since then, that same friend asked me for the recipe, and I told her I would simply put them together for her. I made them and simply tucked the recipe in along with them. It totally made her day and it was such an easy thing to do! So now, I wanted to share the recipe with you as well……. Just cuz I’m kinda cool like that… haha 😉 Seriously, I’m happy to share this recipe with you because it’s so easy and versatile!! Thanksgiving is coming up soon and these gorgeous buns would be IDEAL beside the turkey! Also, they’d go great with chili for game days, or even that extra “something” for your Sunday night dinner. They’re so easy to make, even the kids can get in there and help.
Wow, I’m actually drooling right now thinking about them! A little pat of butter on the warm bun, and you’re as golden as the buns. LOL. No one has to know how simple these ar to put together if you don’t want to tell. These Bacon Cheddar Buns can be secret. Make them, and then let them all be so incredibly impressed with your culinary super powers you Wonder Woman!! Bonus points if you have the suit with the cape.
