These Cheddar, Bacon, Ranch Drop Biscuits are my new obsession. They're so easy and are the perfect complement to any meal!

These Cheddar, Bacon, Ranch Drop Biscuits are my new obsession.  Seriously.  We’ve had them three times in the last two weeks.  They’re quick to make, easy, and are just jam packed with amazing flavor.

These Cheddar, Bacon, Ranch Drop Biscuits are my new obsession. They're so easy and are the perfect complement to any meal!

I love sharing biscuit recipes with y’all.  They are some of my favorite things to make.  In fact, September in National Biscuit Month, so it’s only appropriate that I share this before the month’s over.  My friends at White Lily are helping us celebrate too.  They’re giving one lucky Southern Bite reader a swag bag filled with White Lily goodies!  Be sure to scroll to the very bottom of the post for details.

As I’ve said so many times before, White Lily Flour is the secret ingredient here.  It’s been a staple in the kitchens of my family for generations.  Nothing bakes like White Lily.  It’s just about as plain and simple as that.

To start, preheat the oven to 475°F and lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.  Cut the butter into the flour in a large bowl.  Lots of folks seem to be intimidated by this process.  Don’t be.  You just want to get the butter cut into little pieces so it’s evenly distributed throughout the flour.  You can use a pastry blender or a large fork.  You can even use two knives.   I know several folks that actually freeze their butter and grate it into the flour.  I just don’t ever think far enough ahead to be able to have enough time to freeze the butter.

Once the butter is cut in, stir in the cheese,bacon, and ranch dressing mix.  Stir in the milk and gently mix until the dough is moistened and it starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonsful onto a greased baking sheet.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown.

    • Shari Wildschutte says:

      I have never had the good fortune of being able to try baking with White Lily flour as I have never seen it where I live. I would love to be able to try it.
      Thank you for the chance.
      Shari W.

  2. For as long as I can remember, my family has used White Lily for baking biscuits. I tried cheaper brands on a few occasions and my family revolted. It was apparent that right out of the bag as well as in the finished product, WL flour was the best quality flour with its soft and fine texture. Biscuits are this North Georgia gal’s choice all the way!

  3. Debbie Sickler says:

    Biscuits all the way for me too! 🙂

  4. jon Brierton says:

    I’m an old man. Wish I had someone to make biscuits for me ! (Sigh)

    • I’m an old man too. Biscuits are not hard to make. You don’t need anyone to do it for you. I will tell you this. My dad is 90. Still preaches at the Baptist occasionally and makes his own biscuits and cornbread. That said he lives in a Senior Citizen apartment complex that appears to be about 70% female. He has no lack of volunteers to make biscuits, cookies, cakes and peanut brittle among others. Just a suggestion mind you.

    • How old ARE you Jon?

  5. Trudy McFall says:

  22. Have never tried Whitelily flour. In Pennsylvania we don’t have it. Would most definitely like to try it out in my baking recipes. Went to Whitelily website and looked at all of their recipes and then went to Amazon and read the reviews. Very highly recommended in the reviews.

  23. I love all baked goods, but I guess biscuits are my favorite.

  24. Melt-in-your-mouth biscuits are my favorite thing to make.

  25. I’m a Sothern girl, and I LOVE White Lily!! I grew up being told never make biscuits with anything but White Lily, and I have never deviated from that rule.
    My favorite recipe is the Southern standard, Buttermilk Biscuits. Makes for THE BEST Red Eye Ham Biscuits in the world.
    Thank you, White Lily, for many successful tailgates and luncheons.

  26. Almost anything!

  27. I love making biscuits and cakes!!

  28. Biscuits all the way here, too! Nothing like ’em with homemade strawberry jam! Wish I could find White Lily up here in southern NJ… have to stock up on my stash of White Lily every time we head to Florida.

  29. Stacey, I’m with you all the way….there’s just nothing to compare with good old fashioned biscuits made with White Lily flour and I love to slather mine with butter….oh my!

  48. i live on the west coast and have never tried white lily flour so when my son and his wife had their new baby i was in cummings georgia and purchased a 5 lb sack of white lily flower and brought it home just to see if it was truly as great as everyone claimed, mind you i had to bring this thing on a plane trip!! well it is as wonderful as it is claimed to be, i also got a small sack of cornmeal – can hardly wait to try it!

  49. Since White Lily is the only flour (and Buttermilk Cornmeal mix) I ever buy, it is hard to say. We love our biscuits (southern thing you know) but also, dumplings, cakes, cookies, breading, etc. Can’t wait to try this recipe! I have everything on hand.

  56. Deanna Tanner says:

  57. It’s the best! I love making biscuits with it.

  58. Becky Landers says:

    I don’t believe we have White Lily around where I live but after reading all the wonderful comments I sure would like to try it!!

  59. Kimberly Randle says:

    Buscuits because they are always so nice and remind me of mamma’s buscuits. Also live making pizza dough with white lily. I always shop for white lily flour and cornmeal mux.

  60. Biscuits

  61. Biscuits or cookies. I love baking (and eating what I bake!)

  62. I live in Nebraska. I have looked everywhere for White Lily and can not find it! I want to make biscuits!!!!

  63. Cake, muffins. Anything sweet.

  64. Favorite is buttermilk biscuits!

  66. Jim Pancurak says:

    never tried white lily they have it here where I live

  67. PEGGY TAYLOR says:

    I had never heard of White Lily flour until I married into a Virginia family. That is all my mother in law had. I started using it and everything I baked was better. It is the best flour there is. Hard to find on some parts but I say hunt it down, you will be so glad you did.

  68. I use white lily flour for pie crusts,fried pies, a thickner, anything that calls for good ole white lily flour.

  69. Nothing like hot biscuits, butter, and honey

  70. Larry Roger Braden says:

    I was lucky enough to grow up in the hills of Tennessee in a family of biscuit makers and of course biscuit eaters. White Lily was the flour of choice and there’s nothing that can compare. Sure wish that I could get White Lily in Thailand where I now live.

  71. White Lily has always been my family’s favorite. I remember, when I was little, watching my Grandmother make everything with it. Especially biscuits. So many wonderful memories, as I spent time in Tennessee…in her kitchen!
    Now, my husband cooks with it! When I cook, I use it for my bread, frying my chicken and porkchops! Everything! It’s the best! Can not wait for Holiday cooking with White Lily!

  72. My favorite recipe using White Lily flower is my mother’s dumpling recipe. They are no fail and the best in her chicken and dumpling recipe. I only use White Lily and keep both self rising and all purpose at all times!

  73. Cookies, cookies and more cookies. White Lily is superb.

  74. Hilda Keener says:

    I use White Lily flour for everything! When I was first married and feeling a little rebellious, I tried another brand of flour. What a disaster – my cookies were sticky and my biscuits were not tasty at all. Lesson learned. So for almost 39 years, White Lily is the only flour allowed in my house. I always have all purpose and self rising on hand. I recommend it to everyone, even a man in the grocery store who didn’t know which brand of flour to buy.

  75. I can’t make a rolled/cut with a biscuit cutter biscuit to save my life. I make hockey pucks if I try it that way. Drop biscuits on the other hand are my saving grace when it comes to biscuits. They don’t always work well if you want to make a biscuit sandwich, but it’s much easier to eat than my rolled biscuits.

  76. Love White Lily Flour. Use it for all my baking including biscuits, scones, cakes, etc. My Mother also used White Lily Flour so it’s natural for me to pick up White Lily without even looking at other brands. Have tried several of your biscuit recipes and really love your combinations. I’m sure this one will be great as well.

  77. My Mother taught me that you the only kind of flour to use was White Lily. Makes the best cakes and biscuits.

  78. i would be a white lily newbie … but to echo many of the above comments, i would want to biscuits, all kinds. and judging from what’s said above, white lily biscuits would be finest-kind. -suz in ohio

  79. I would make our favorite chocolate chip cookie bars. Thanks for the giveaway!

  80. I, too, love baking biscuits with White Lily Flour. I can tell that l am going to have a great biscuit by the smell of the batter just after l add the milk! I have been known to sneek a little taste at that point…ssshh.

  81. White Lily self rising flour makes the best biscuits as well as fried chicken!

  82. Judy Pilgrim says:

    Cakes are my thing and so is White Lily flour! Nothing but the best!

  83. I have used White Lily Flour for over 10 years for baking cakes. It is the only flour I
    use, there is nothing better.

  84. I love to make biscuits with White Lily flour. They are the best!

  85. Biscuits! White Lily for biscuits…White Lily = Biscuits…White Lily IS biscuits! My great aunt swears by White Lily and, of course, her biscuits are the best! 🙂

  87. sondra oliver says:

  89. Chicken & dumplings!

  90. Melinda Wood says:

    Does adding flour to chocolate gravy to thicken it count as a recipe? 🙂 Because chocolate gravy is my favorite thing to eat that has flour in it. Actually, it’s my favorite thing to eat period. lol

  102. I would do love to win this. I guess I used the wrong kind of flour because I tried to make biscuits and they were a total loss? So please pick me, pick me!!
