  • Makes
    9 biscuits


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking soda. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until combined. Fold in the bacon and cheese.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 4-5 times. Roll out to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
Editor's Note
As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
