This Cheese Biscuits recipe makes four good-size biscuits, which is plenty for two folks for breakfast (maybe even 4 people, if one of them isn't me).
The recipe doubles quite easily if you want to make a bigger batch.
Ingredients for Cheese Biscuits:
1 cup ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
2 tsp BAKING POWDER
1/4 tsp SALT
1/2 cup MILK
1 JALAPENO pepper (chopped)
4 slices BACON (cooked crispy, crumbled)
1/2 cup CHEDDAR CHEESE (shredded)
First thing, fry up your bacon and set aside to cool--you'll want it crisp enough to crumble. Slice your jalapeno (seeds and all) and saute for a minute or two in the bacon grease--this'll flavor it up, start to cook it up, and knock off a little of the heat. Set pepper aside on a paper towel to drain.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well and then cut in the shortening. Add shredded cheese, sauted pepper, and crumbled bacon and mix. Slowly add milk, turning the mixture, getting the loose flour to come together into clumps.
Then, on a floured surface, turn the clumped dough out of the bowl and knead gently approx. a dozen times.
Form into biscuits--I just make a big pie shape and cut it into four pieces cause I'm lazy (or brilliant).
Brush biscuit tops with melted butter, if desired. I can take of leave this move--the biscuits will have plenty of color from the bacon, cheese, and jalapenos.
Place biscuits on an ungreased sheet and bake at 425 degrees F for 13-15 minutes.
