Bacon Cheddar Biscuits – a classic buttermilk biscuit with the addition of bacon, cheddar cheese, and chives.

You might remember in my last post with the Seafood Stew recipe, I mentioned that I served that with some Bacon Cheddar Biscuits and promised that the recipe would be coming up in a few days. Well, ta da! Here it is.

These were very good along with the seafood stew, but they’d be great with most anything. Full of bacon, cheddar cheese, and chives, they’re just packed with flavor.

The recipe makes at least twelve big biscuits so you’re bound to have some leftover. Take one of the leftovers, split it open, put some dijon mustard and a slice of ham on there and, oh baby.

How to Make Bacon Cheddar Biscuits

Preheat oven to 425.

Prepping ingredients for Bacon Cheddar Biscuits

Cook and chop the bacon and set it aside. Luckily, I had some bacon leftover from breakfast, so I simply used that. Grate the cheese and chop the fresh chives.

Combine flour, baking soda, and butter for Bacon Cheddar Biscuits

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a food processor. Blend for 5 seconds. Add the butter cubes and blend until the mixture resembles coarse meal (bottom photo), about 30 seconds. Transfer the flour and butter mixture to a large bowl.

Adding ingredients together for Bacon Cheddar Biscuits

Add the cheddar cheese, fresh chives, and chopped bacon. Toss to blend. The easiest and most efficient to blend it all together is to just get your two clean hands right in there and mix it up well. Make sure that everything is well incorporated and distributed throughout the flour.

Add buttermilk

Gradually add the buttermilk stirring to moisten evenly. The mixture will be sticky and wet.

Form the Bacon Cheddar Biscuits and place on baking pan

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using lightly floured hands, drop 1/2 cup batter for each biscuit onto prepared baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart. I have to admit that I scooped mine out by half cupfuls and shaped them a little in my hands before I put them on the baking sheet. But if you want to drop them, go right ahead.

Bake until the biscuits are golden brown and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean – 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush tops lightly with melted butter.

Let cool 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature with honey, if desired. Also, great for sandwiches – split one in half, spread with Dijon mustard and add a slice of ham!

Enjoy!

  2. Oooo….I just love the cheese crust. So very tempting! Haven’t taken thise for a long time. Looks so good!

  3. mmmm split one of those open and make a grilled cheese sandwich… or a bacon egg and cheese sandwich… mmmmm so many options!

  4. These remind me of cheese biscuits I tried to make when I first learned to cook , at least a half century ago. Mine were not nearly as good looking as these. Will have to try these, maybe I can get it right with this recipe. They look scrumptious.

  5. Mmmmm…tempting biscuits. It’s got two things i love. Cheese and bacon. hehehe… This would be a perfect pairing for some soup or that delicious seafood stew.
