When we were in NYC last summer, we went to the Clinton Street Baking Company and ate an incredible goat cheese and herb scone (in addition to the best pancakes EVER).
When we got home from our trip, I immediately started googling in search for a similar recipe to recreate them. Well, I didn’t find a goat cheese and herb scone recipe, but I did find a recipe for Sweet Potato Biscuits with Bacon & Thyme.
Sweet potatoes? One of my favorite foods ever. Bacon? Um, yes please. I don’t think I will ever give up bacon. And thyme is just delicious. These scones have become one of our favorite brunch menu items.
This is my picture but the delectable recipe below came from Pinch My Salt (which is definitely a blog worth checking out…extensively.:))
Sweet Potato Biscuits with Bacon and Thyme
2 C. Bisquick baking mix
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
1 heaping teaspoon fresh chopped thyme leaves
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup mashed sweet potato
1 T. brown sugar
all purpose flour for dusting counter
Yield: 8-10 small biscuits [I used a plastic cup to cut them out since I don’t have a biscuit cutter and got 6 medium-largish biscuits]
Recipe notes: To make 1/2 cup of mashed sweet potatoes, peel one smallish sweet potato, cut it into chunks, and boil it for about 15 minutes until fork tender. Just make sure that it’s tender enough not to leave little chunks in your biscuits and mash it up well!

If you want bacon in bread, check out the Peppered Bacon Farm Bread from Zingerman’s. You can order it and have it shipped and it’s awesome.

I bet a gluten-free version wouldn’t be too hard to figure out with all the different flours out there these days. Perhaps I’ll attempt it for you sometime! 🙂
I could go for one of those right about now……
Make ’em. You want ’em. Trust me. Super easy too.
I bet these are crumbly and filled with flavor. I would have a hard time stopping at just one. The addition of bacon and sweet potato makes ’em extra special. Great job!!
I definitely did NOT stop at one. 🙂
Wow, these sound fantastic! Anything with sweet potatoes and bacon – I’m in. 🙂
