Bacon-cheese biscuits

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Self-rising flour
1 tablespoon Sugar
⅓ cup Shortening
1 cup Buttermilk
½ teaspoon Baking soda
¾ pounds Sliced bacon; cooked and crumbled
1 cup Shredded Cheddar cheese

Combine flour and sugar; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal; set aside.

Combine buttermilk and soda, stirring until soda dissolves. Add buttermilk mixture, bacon, and cheese to flour mixture, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 4 or 5 times.

Roll dough to ½-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch biscuit vutter. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Yields about 18 biscuits.
