Ingredients

  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking soda. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until combined. Fold in the bacon and cheese.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 4-5 times. Roll out to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 9 biscuits.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
