Ingredients

6 slice
bacon
3 3/4 c
bread flour
1 1/2 Tbsp
baking powder
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 c
chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 1/2 c
packed coarsely grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 c
chopped fresh chives
1 3/4 c
chilled buttermilk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Position rack just above center of oven and preheat to 425 degrees. Line heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2
Cook bacon in heavy large skillet over medium heat until crisp and brown. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain, then chop coarsely.
3
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in processor; blend 5 seconds. Add butter cubes. Blend until coarse meal forms, about 30 seconds. Transfer flour mixture to large bowl.
4
Add cheese, chives and bacon; toss to blend. Gradually add buttermilk, stirring to moisten evenly (batter will feel sticky).
5
Using lightly floured hands, drop generous 1/2 cup batter for each biscuit onto prepared baking sheet, spacing batter mounds about 2 inches apart.
6
Bake biscuits until golden and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 18-20 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes, serve warm.
