Bacon, White Cheddar, and Fried Onion Buttermilk Biscuits


We always have fried onions in our pantry. I've found that they are a miracle ingredient to so many dishes- scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, any and all vegetables, chili, etc. And now, I know that they're also a miracle ingredient when it comes to making biscuits. These pillowy buttermilk bundles are packed with cheese, bacon, and fried onions. They make for a killer egg sandwich in the morning, are amazing with ham or turkey for lunch, and the perfect accompaniment to chili or soup for supper.

 

Bowl #1

2 cups, [287 grams] all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup [80 grams] sharp white cheddar, shredded

1/2 cup [55 grams] chopped, cooked bacon

6 tablespoons butter, frozen and grated and frozen

1 cup [250 grams] buttermilk, cold

On the sidelines:

1 cup, or so, of store-bought fried onions


 

1

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Lightly knead to ensure that everything is evenly distributed and mixed. I like to whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt first to make sure that they're evenly mixed before adding everything else in.

2

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a few baking pans with parchment paper and lightly spray with nonstick spray.

3

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about one and a half inch thickness. Using a biscuit cutter or a drinking glass, cut out biscuits and place them on the prepared pans.

4

Lightly brush with buttermilk, sprinkle with fried onions and bake the biscuits until they are deeply golden brown, about 8-10 minutes. Let cool.
