Aged Gouda-Bacon Biscuits

A local restaurant makes amazing bacon-cheddar biscuits. They are so amazing that one date night Jake and I skipped dessert and just ordered another batch of biscuits. I've had them on my list to make. So, one morning last weekend, I made a batch of bacon biscuits with some aged gouda that I had in the fridge. Delish.

  • 10 slices smoked bacon
  • 3 C flour
  • 1 1/2 t baking powder
  • 3/4 t baking soda
  • 1 1/2 C organic heavy cream
  • 1/2 C aged gouda, shredded

Cook bacon in the oven - or however you wish - reserve bacon grease. Drain cooked strips on paper towels, then chop.

Preheat the oven to 400° F. Place all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

Use a wooden spoon to beat the ingredients until it comes together into a cohesive dough. Turn out onto a parchment-lined work space and knead gently until smooth.

Roll out the dough to about 1/2" thick. Cut into circles; I used a measuring cup. Lay biscuits on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Bake the biscuits for 22 to 24 minutes - until golden. Let cool slightly on a wire rack and serve with apple butter, pumpkin butter, or - as I did - roasted acorn squash butter.
