Cheddar Bacon Buttermilk Biscuits

Author: Gaby Dalkin


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter grated
  • 4 strips cooked bacon chopped into little pieces
  • ¼ cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup cold buttermilk


  • In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking sode and pepper and stir to combine.
  • Using a box grater, grate the butter into the dry mixture.
  • Add the chopped bacon and cheddar cheese.
  • Then place the entire bowl into the freezer for a few minutes just to keep the butter cold and chill the dry ingredients.
  • After about 10 minutes, remove the bowl from the freezer and add in the buttermilk. Carefully stir the mixture until everything comes together.
  • Turn the dough out onto a clean, lightly floured cutting board and using your hands, gather it into one large mass.
  • Tear of roughly 1/2 cup pieces of dough and carefully mold them into messy looking round. (drop biscuit style) Repeat this for the remaining dough and line them on a parchment lined baking sheet, making sure not to put them too close to one another since they spread a touch when baking.
  • Place the entire baking sheet into the fridge and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 450? F.
  • Place the baking sheet in the hot oven and bake until the biscuits are lightly golden brown, about 15-18 minutes. Serve warm! And with maple butter if you have some or can buy some.
