15 mins Serves 12 biscuits Light, fluffy, very easy to make biscuits baked in a skillet and stuffed with delicious STAR Flavor Destinations: Italian (Garlic & Basil) Marinated Olives! 25 minutes from start to finish! #STARFineFoods Ingredients: 3 slices bacon 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 8 tablespoons butter, cut into cubes ½ cup milk (more or less if needed) ¾-cup sliced and drained STAR Flavor Destinations: Italian (Garlic & Basil) Marinated Olives 1 egg 1 tablespoon water Fresh ground pepper Dry parsley flakes Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425F.

Place the strips of bacon in a cast iron skillet and cook over medium-low heat for 7 to 8 minutes, or until cooked to a desired crispiness.

Remove bacon from skillet; do not discard bacon fat! Set skillet aside.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl; whisk to combine.

Using a pastry cutter, cut butter into mixture until crumbly. You can also use your hands and fingers.

Make a well in the flour mixture and add milk into the well.

Stir dough with wooden spoon or hands and add more milk IF necessary. Dough should look like a shaggy mixture. Add sliced olives; stir just enough to combine, making sure not to over mix the biscuit dough.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a circle, about 1-inch thick. Cut out biscuits with a round biscuit cutter. Press any dough scraps together to make a few more biscuits out of the remaining dough.

Place biscuits in the previously prepared skillet with bacon fat. Depending on the size of your biscuits, you might have to bake the biscuits in batches.

In a small bowl, combine egg and water; whisk to combine. Brush each biscuit with egg wash. Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper and parsley flakes.

Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Serve warm.
