Bacon Bombs

What a week - the news itself was full of awful things.  A city I loved and have spent a lot of time in had been attacked.  And knowing that many of my friends live in and around Boston it was a very worrisome and stressful time.  The weekend couldn't come fast enough - I was very much looking forward to seeing BP and spending some time with him.  I had Friday off, and spent most of the day at BP's house watching the news and waiting for him to get home from work, and when he got home he had a surprise for me.

sweetest man ever
BP found a great treat both of us were dying to make - Bacon Bombs.  It's the perfect snack for when he has poker night and the guys over.  And of course we had to make them before the guys come over so it was time to test them out - you know, to see if they are good or not.  :)  Well that's what we kept saying.  So off I went to get what we needed.  I couldn't wait for these little nuggets of yumminess.  I mean it has things I love all rolled into one - cheese, biscuits and bacon.  You can't go wrong with these bad boys. 

why hello there!!

Let me warn you - it makes a lot.  This is a great treat for when you have a lot of people over.  I made it through a half a batch and BP and I called it quits.  There are some currently waiting in his freezer and fridge ready to go. 

Gooey goodness
These are fantastic.  If you don't feel like using Mozzarella Cheese, switch it out for your favorite kind then.  You can always bake these in the oven if you don't want to fry them as well.  350 degrees for 8-10 minutes until edges are golden brown and bacon is crispy (you may have to broil to crisp up bacon fully).

Bacon Bombs
1 can (8 count) Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits
1 1/2 pounds cubed Mozzarella Cheese (one 1" cube per bomb)
2 pounds sliced bacon
Oil for frying
  1. Cube up cheese into 1" cubes.  Cut each biscuit into fourths.  Place one cube of cheese inside a biscuit quarter and shape biscuit dough around cheese so no cheese is showing.  Make sure it's sealed up nice and tight.  Wrap a piece of bacon around it and secure with a toothpick.  Repeat until all bombs are made. 
  2. Heat approximately 2" of oil in large pan to 350 degrees.  Fry Bombs in small batches - don't go far while frying, the oil expands so make sure to stay close. 
  3. Once golden in color, remove from oil and place on paper towels to drain.  Serve while warm.
