How to cook Filipino Style Cheesy Bacon Bombs
I first found this dish on Facebook, while browsing my timeline the image of Cheesy Bacon Bombs immediately captured my attention. I click the link and showed it to my wife and told her that we are going to do this, my mouth is watering looking at the image. Upon reading the ingredients, I discovered that the author used a Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits, I Googled it and found out that it is not available in the Philippines.
We experimented with different dough ingredients to produce this flaky layer biscuit, but we always fail, the result is not good because most of the biscuits we made absorbs a lot of oil. One day we made Lumpia Shanghai and there were leftovers lumpia wrappers, my wife thought that the purpose of the biscuit in the original Cheesy Bacon Bombs Recipe is to hold the cubed mozzarella cheese. To cut a long story short, the lumpia wrapper can hold the cheese with only a small amount bursting at the sides and less oil absorption compared to the biscuit dough that we tried.
