These are very good. I used part 2% milk and part reduced fat buttermilk. (Buttermilk makes every baked good better!) I also increased the bacon a little, because I had 6 slices left. I might make this again with slightly less baking powder and do drop biscuits instead. They were very good but a little bit fluffy. My husband wanted something just a little denser and chewier. I may also have mixed them a little too much.
