Bacon and Cheese Biscuits
2 cups (500 ml) all-purpose flour
1 Tbs (15 ml) baking powder
1 tsp (5 ml) baking soda
1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
5 Tbs (75 ml) cold butter cut into small pieces
1 cup (250 ml) buttermilk
2-3 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 cup (250 ml) grated Cheddar cheese
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and cut in the butter using
a pastry knife or a pair of dinner knives until it resembles coarse
crumbs. Add the buttermilk and stir just enough to form a ball.
Fold in the bacon and cheese. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls on
an ungreased baking sheet and bake in a preheated 450F (230C)
oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately.
Makes about 18 biscuits
