TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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.
