There's nothing like some homemade biscuits to take your brunch to the next level. You can make these in less than 30 minutes and you'll be amazed how flavorful they are. It's best to use a sharp Cheddar with this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 Cup of flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 3 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 6 Tablespoons chilled butter
  • 3/4 Cups buttermilk (less or more if needed)
  • 2 Tablespoons cooked bacon, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup sharp Cheddar
  • 1/8 Cup scallions, sautéed (optional)
  • pinch of pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven 350ºF.

In a large bowl whisk together flour, salt, pepper, baking powder. Cut the butter into cubes and toss into dry mixture. Press the butter and the flour mixture together with your hands to create little petals.

Stir in the the bacon, Cheddar and scallions.

Add the buttermilk and form a dough that's not too wet. A little crumbly is good.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Gently form smaller balls from it and press the dough into 1-inch thich discs.

Lay the discs on the baking sheet and bake at 350ºF for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
