Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour , packed (self-rising flour is not recommended due to the overage of saltiness)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 ounce ranch seasoning
  • ½ cup butter salted, cut in small pieces (if using unsalted, add ¼ tsp salt)
  • 1 cup milk regular or buttermilk
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 6 slices bacon , lean, cooked, crumbled

Instructions

  • Cook your bacon first, then set aside to drain and cool on a paper towel lined plate.
  • Shred your cheese. (It's best to use freshly shredded, but not absolutely necessary.)
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and ranch dressing mix.
  • Cut the butter in small pieces and add to the flour mixture and combine with your hands or pastry blender until crumbly.
  • Pour in cheese, milk, and bacon crumbles and combine with a wooden spoon until well incorporated, taking care not to over mix.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and roll out dough to ¾ to 1-inch thick.  Cut out biscuits with biscuit cutter or cookie cutter.
  • Add each biscuit to an ungreased cookie sheet or iron skillet. In order to promote more rise during baking, allow biscuits to touch in the pan.
  • Bake for 10-20 minutes in preheated 400 degree oven (or until browned).
  • Makes 10-12 biscuits.
