The Steps

Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice the bacon and cook until crisp. Remove from the pan and place on a paper towel to drain the grease. Peel and then cube the potatoes. Place the potatoes into boiling water and boil until softened.

Step 2: Mash the potatoes and mix in sour cream, cream cheese and butter. Fold in cheddar cheese, bacon, salt, pepper, green onions and crushed garlic.

Step 3: Open the package of pre-made biscuit dough. Break each biscuit in half so that it is not as thick. Spread it out slightly. Place about 2 tablespoon of potato mixture into the center of the biscuit.

Step 4: Fold the biscuit around the potato mixture and seal it at the bottom. Place the potato bombs on a cookie sheet seem side down. Bake for 10-11 minutes or until the tops begin to brown. Serve warm with sour cream and barbecue sauce.

Hint: for a nice and crisp outside of the biscuit, brush the dough with butter or olive oil before baking.
