Hayden’s Nan’s Bacon, Cheese and Onion Biscuits

21 September 2018

Hayden from our Marketing team has shared one of his Nan’s recipes – which make for a great savoury treat in the cold winter months. Stored in an airtight container, they should last for several days.


  • 2 cups flour
  •  1 tablespoon baking powder
  •  1 teaspoon onion powder
  •  1 teaspoon paprika
  •  1 teaspoon salt
  •  1 cup milk
  •  1/2 cup butter, melted
  •  8 pieces bacon, cooked until crispy, chopped
  •  1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  •  1 egg



  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, paprika, and onion powder.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the mix and add the milk, butter, chopped bacon and cheese. Mix gently with a wooden spoon. Don’t worry if the
    dough is wet and sticky – it’s meant to be!
  4. Using a 1/4 cup measure or ice cream scoop, portion the batter onto a non-stick baking sheet. Leave 2cm or so around each biscuit.
  5. In a small bowl, beat the egg with a splash of water and then brush this mixture on the top of each biscuit.
  6. Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.


TIP: If you’re not sure if they’re done, insert a toothpick in the centre of a biscuit – if it comes out clean they’re ready to eat. Careful, though, they’ll be hot!
