How to Make Cheddar, Bacon and Chives Biscuits


  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.
