Bacon Tomato Biscuits

Bacon Tomato Biscuits

1 can large flaky biscuits (Grands)
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I like mozzarella/cheddar blend)
1 can fiesta rotel tomatoes, drained & patted dry)
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 onion, chopped
10 pieces bacon crumbled

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray 12-muffin tin. Separate each biscuit into 2 layers and press into each cup. Mix all ingredients and spoon evenly into each biscuit "volcano". Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until golden.

FYI... I use precooked bacon and crisp it up in the microwave - no mess. If I make the mixture the night before, I chop the bacon (and onion) in the food processor for smaller pieces. Bacon tends to get chewy overnight if the pieces are too large. Also, you can spread the mixture out and make about 4 or more in another smaller muffin tin. That way you use all the biscuits.

Easy greasy and oh so good!

Another one from Melissa...i can hardly wait to try it. Sounds so yummy!
