Jump And Jive Cheddar Chive And Bacon Biscuits

Besides adding these to dinner dishes, I also make them in the morning for a breakfast all by itself. Who doesn’t like a nice warm biscuit fresh from the oven to start off their morning? Even my kids really enjoy these. They are quick and I usually have everything I need in the kitchen to toss them together so it works out perfectly! Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at The Seasoned Mom:

“So simple and perfect with a bowl of soup!”

These are great with soups, stews, and chili, or all by themselves!



4 ounces Kraft cheddar cheese, grated

3 tablespoons minced fresh chives

½ cup diced cooked Hormel bacon

2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter

¾ cup milk



Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

In a small bowl, toss together cheese, chives, and bacon with 1 tablespoon flour. Set aside.

In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry cutter or two forks to cut in butter.

Add milk and stir just enough to bring the ingredients together. This should make a soft dough. Gently fold in the cheese mixture.

Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for about 1 minute.

Pat or roll out dough to ½ or ¾-inch thickness.

Cut into rounds (I used a 2 ½ inch round biscuit cutter, but a juice glass will also work!).

For crisp biscuits, place far apart on an ungreased baking sheet. For fluffier biscuits, place them close together on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown on top.



Quick Tip: Cut in half and use to make a breakfast sandwich!
