Today is group A’s reveal day for Secret Recipe Club and I am filling in for my old group today.

Making Memories with Your Kids has some really good looking recipes that are kid friendly and perfect for letting the little ones help you out. I had originally planned to make English Muffins but our milk was iffy and it had rained most of the weekend and I didn’t want to go out in that mess. Then Erin’s recipe for cheesy loaded twice baked potato casserole caught my eye but I was really wanting some type of bread.
Bacon Cheddar Biscuit Pinwheels
Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels came to the rescue.  How can you go wrong with bacon, cheese, and bread? Erin’s recipe originally had crescent roll dough but I don’t keep it on hand but I did have everything to make buttermilk biscuits. Plus you know it wouldn’t be an SRC recipe if I didn’t change something.

The end was result was soo good. The tender, slightly tangy biscuit with the salty crunch of the bacon, and gooey cheese was heavenly. Bacon Cheddar Biscuit Pinwheels are a new family favorite.
