Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crisp and brown. Transfer to paper towels and drain. Chop and set aside.

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl.

Using a food processor, pastry cutter, or fingertips incorporate the chilled butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the Cheddar cheese, fresh chives, and cooked bacon. Mix to distribute the ingredients evenly.

Add the buttermilk and stir just until moistened. Using 1/2 cup dough for each biscuit and using a cup measure or an ice cream scoop, drop the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing the mounds about 2-inches apart.

Bake until the biscuits are golden brown on top, about 15 to 20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Serve the biscuits warm with melted butter.

    We loved the recipe. I made half a recipe & used a 1/3 c. measure but these were still very big & delicious. I did use more buttermilk because I make biscuits all the time & knew what I wanted the dough to look like. Did anyone do the calorie intake for these?

    These were fabulous!!! I didn't have bacon or chives on hand, so i just used scallions and cheddar. This is a great base biscuit recipe. I'm keeping this one in my arsenal!!
