How can I turn something sweet into something savory?
With this week's challenge item being a sweetener of some kind, the possibilities seemed so very, very broad.
I wanted to make a mango-flavored chicken, relying on the sweet fruit to brighten the meat.
I also wanted to make honey dipped ricotta puffs using puff pastry but, alas, I will have to save that for another day.
For this week's challenge, I opted to make honey and brown sugar-baked bacon biscuits with cheddar cheese, onions and parsley.
I can't even remember why I wanted to make these.
I lined a baking sheet with foil, sprinkled the bacon with brown sugar and honey, then baked them for about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, I prepared the dough, adding some garlic salt and onions that I had cooked with parsley. That turned out to be an excellent addition and was so nice a fragrant.
At the last minute, I decided to add the shredded cheddar cheese.
The only thing -- the biscuits did not turn out as nearly as fluffy as I would have liked. I should have added an egg to the batter, for sure! But the flavor was pretty nice. As they baked, I did add a dollop and butter splash on top, which left the biscuits with a lovely golden glow and a gentle sweet flavor at the end.
