...cheddar, bacon, and fresh chive biscuits...

I married someone from the South.  I should know how to make biscuits.  Right?  Well, I'm trying.  These were good.  In fact, Benjamin said, "My Mom would be jealous of these."  That was enough for me..

They're best warm, right out of the oven, with more butter.

Recipe loosely adapted from and thanks to Bon Appetit

Ingredients you'll Need:
6 bacon slices
3 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup chilled unsalted butter cut into cubes, plus more for brushing when hot
2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar
1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
1 3/4 cups buttermilk

1.  Preheat oven to 425.  Cook bacon until crisp- chop up and set aside.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a food processor.  Add butter cubes and pulse until crumbly.  Transfer to a bowl and add cheddar, chives, and chopped bacon.  Toss to blend then add in buttermilk, stirring until combined.

3.  Using floured hands, drop the biscuits onto a prepared pan and bake for 18-20 minutes.  Brush biscuits with butter when they're hot and out of the oven and enjoy!
