Bacon, Cheddar & Herb Biscuits
June 16, 2019
Nothing beats a little lovin' from the oven.
Getting out of bed on a weekend morning is a heckuva lot easier when there's a big pan of warm biscuits waiting. These up the ante with the addition of bacon, sharp cheddar, and flecks of herbs. And, bonus: you'll discover a newfound love for your grater!
scallions (bunching onions), minced
strips bacon, cooked & crumbled
sharp cheddar, grated
Preheat oven to 425.
Mix together the dry ingredients. Use a grater to grate cold butter into dry ingredients. Use your hands to toss until butter is evenly distributed.
Add bacon, scallions, cheese, and parsley and toss again.
Add the milk, all at once, mixing quickly and gently for about 20 seconds until you have a soft dough. If mixture seems too dry, add a little more milk, but dough should be fairly stiff.
On a lightly floured surface, pat dough out to a rough rectangle about 1" thick. Fold into thirds like a letter, then pat out again, turn dough and repeat. Use a fairly light touch through this process. Pat out again to about 1" thick, then cut into 12 squares.
Place onto buttered baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.
