4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
3 tablespoons minced fresh chives
½ cup diced cooked bacon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter
¾ cup milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
In a small bowl, toss together cheese, chives, and bacon with 1 tablespoon flour. Set aside.
In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry cutter or two forks to cut in butter.
Add milk and stir just enough to bring the ingredients together. This should make a soft dough. Gently fold in the cheese mixture.
Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for about 1 minute.
Pat or roll out dough to ½ or ¾-inch thickness.
Cut into rounds (I used a 2 ½ inch round biscuit cutter,)
For fluffier biscuits, place them close together on an un-greased baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
