Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels and reserve 2 tablespoons drippings. FInely chop bacon.
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chopped bacon, and chives in a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, work the butter into the flour mixture until it is in pea-size pieces. Stir in the cheese with a wooden spoon. Add the butter milk and reserved bacon drippings and gently mix until just moistened. The dough will be loose.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 3-5 times, just until it comes together. Don't overknead or biscuits will be touch. Roll dough to 1/2" thick, then cut out biscuits using a floured 2" round biscuit cutter. Arrange on an ungreased baking sheet. Reroll dough scraps and cut out more biscuits.
  5. Bake biscuits until golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Serve warm.
