Ingredients:

Yield 4-6 Servings
  • ½ cup bacon small diced and rendered until crispy
  • 2 cups A/P flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 stick butter (cubed)
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup shredded medium cheddar

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet add in the bacon pieces and render the bacon down until crispy (do not burn the bacon – The heat should be medium). When bacon is crispy remove from the grease and place in a paper towel lined bowl. Pour out most of the bacon grease and hold for later. Make sure to leave some in the skillet so the biscuits do not stick.
  3. In a large mixing bowl add in the flour, baking soda, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and sugar and mix well. Take cold cubed butter and cut into the flour using a mixer, fork, knives, or fingers. (I prefer to use my hands)
  4. Once butter is incorporated well and the flour mix is crumbly and pebble like add the cheddar, bacon bits, milk and cream. Mix everything together.
  5. The dough should not be dry or runny. It needs to be mixed well and sticky.
  6. Use a large tablespoon to scoop out large balls of the dough and place in the greased skillet. Continue this process until the skillet is full of biscuits. Do not stack them.
  7. Place in the oven at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes or until risen and golden brown.

Heat butter and bacon grease in a saucepan. Add in garlic and sauté until aromatic. Add in parsley and remove from heat. Brush over the biscuits when ready.
