  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Cheese: You can use your favorite type of cheese in this recipe, in place of the cheddar. Some great options are provolone, swiss, colby jack, or monterey jack. If you want to add a little spice you could also try pepper jack.

Bacon: You can make your own bacon and chop it yourself or use store-bought bacon bits instead.

Milk: While 2% milk works best, you could also use low fat milk or whole milk.

HOW TO MAKE THIS BACON CHEDDAR BISCUITS RECIPE

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 

STEP TWO: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

STEP THREE: In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt. 

STEP FOUR: Add in melted butter, chives, and milk. Stir well to mix. 

PRO TIP:  When melting stick butter in the microwave, remove from butter wrapper, place in a small microwave bowl, and place the butter wrapper over the top of the bowl. This helps contain any butter splatter.

STEP FIVE: Stir in shredded cheese and bacon pieces just until mixed. 

STEP SIX: Using a large cookie scoop, ¼ cup size, scoop out the dough onto the parchment paper making 12 biscuits about 1 inch apart.

STEP SEVEN: Bake 15 to 17 minutes until the tops are lightly browned. 

STEP EIGHT: Using a small bowl mix all topping ingredients together and spoon evenly over the tops of each warm biscuit.

STEP NINE: Let biscuits cool for about 10 minutes on the baking sheet before removing them as they’ll continue to bake a bit on the warm tray after you remove them from the oven.

STEP TEN: Serve warm. 

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Store leftovers in a sealed food storage then place in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

IN THE FREEZER: You can keep leftover biscuits longer by freezing them. Place them in a freezer Ziploc bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw on the countertop at room temperature and heat slightly in the oven before serving.
