Video: How to Make Bear Grease Biscuits

The search for the perfect bear grease biscuit recipe ends here, folks.

Smash your biscuits together if you don’t want the sides crispy or spread them out if you do. Bake them for 12 minutes if you like them just barely cooked like me, or leave them in a little longer if you like your biscuits well-browned.

Eat them up with some homemade jelly or jam or just slather them in butter when they’re hot out of the pan. Either way, you might want to double this recipe because these aren’t going to last very long in your kitchen. Bear grease ain’t just for predicting the weather, after all.
