Bacon biscuits

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup (180 grams) all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 slices bacon, crisply cooked, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup butter, frozen
  • 1/2 cup mashed potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt, bacon and rosemary.
  3. Using a grater with large holes shred the frozen butter over the flour mixture and with a fork, toss to coat. Add the leftover mashed potatoes and buttermilk and stir just until soft dough forms.
  4. Remove the dough from the bowl and place it on a floured working surface and give it a gently knead. Keep in mind that the more you knead, the tougher the biscuits will turn.
  5. With your fingers, flatten the dough to a 3/4″ thickness.
  6. With a floured 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter, cut out biscuits and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Gently knead the leftover dough, flatten it out and cut few more biscuits.
  8. Bake the biscuits into the preheated oven for about 13-15 minutes or until light golden brown.
