Bacon Cheddar Biscuits

Biscuits are the epitome of soul food. These biscuits are flaky and delicious. Have them with a little bit of honey for a perfect balance of sweet, salty, and savory.

Bacon Cheddar Biscuits (Makes 12 Biscuits)
1 stick Butter
2 tbsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
10.5 oz Self Rising Flour
8oz Buttermilk
2 oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 strips Bacon
1/2 stick butter, for brushing 

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
2. Cut butter into small 1/2 inch cubes. 
3. Place the flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl with the butter. 
4. Separate all of the cubes and flatten them each between your fingers. 
5. Once the butter is flattened, rub the mixture between your fingers until the butter flakes become small, about pea sized. 
6. Cook the bacon in a frying pan and slice it to small pieces.
7. Mix the bacon bits and cheese into the biscuit mix. 
8. Add the buttermilk and mix until it comes together.
9. Turn the dough over onto the table and fold over itself a couple of times. 
10. Form into a 6x8 inch rectangle and cut with a knife into 12- 2x2 inch squares 
11. Place the biscuits onto a baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes. 
12. Melt butter. 
13. Once the biscuits are golden and the centers are baked through, remove from the oven and brush thoroughly with butter. Serve warm. 

Sorry for the late post! It has been an extremely busy weekend. I will be back again Sunday night 10pm! Until then, enjoy some yummy soul food- delicious biscuits! Also, happy St. Patrick's Day!
