Cheddar Bacon Biscuits

These biscuits are unbelievable!  Cheddar biscuits are pretty amazing, but when you add bacon, it's just explosive!!!  Make sure not to over-bake these---I did for the first batch, and they're really not edible if you do that.  If you do bake these the correct amount, they're a great starch side dish for a delicious meal :)


2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1-1/2 tsp salt
12 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold and chopped
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
6 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled
2-4 scallions, green parts only, thinly chopped

Preheat the oven to 425º F, and whisk dry ingredients together. Cut butter into mixture until you have a meal with lumps about the size of small peas.

Beat buttermilk and egg, and add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture until just combined.  Lightly coat cheddar with dusting of flour and add to dough along with crumbled bacon and scallions until just distributed.

Dump out onto a well-floured board and knead 6-8 times. Press dough flat and cut with biscuit cutter. Transfer to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 18-20 minutes, until the tops are lightly browned.  Serve hot.

Hope y'all enjoy!
