The BEST savory biscuit recipe you will ever see! Loaded with crispy bacon bits, extra-sharp cheddar cheese, and chives. The biscuits come out perfectly flaky and buttery every time!
Greetings from Thailand!
It is 94 degrees F, I have sweated through 2 outfits, and taken 3 showers already in just one day.
But. I did have $1.60 street pad thai + a thai iced tea, which was probably the best meal of my life.
So it all evens out.
But while I’m here in the hottest city ever, I hope the rest of you will all stay warm and cozy with chunky sweaters and these bacon cheddar chive biscuits.
It’s the definition of comfort food, with the buttery, flaky goodness in ever bite.
Not to mention, the loads of cheese and bacon here.
So please have an extra biscuit for me while we load up on more $1 pad thai!

The BEST savory biscuits you will ever have! Loaded with crispy bacon bits, extra-sharp cheddar cheese and chives. The biscuits come out perfectly flaky and buttery every time!
6 slices bacon, diced
4 cups all-purpose flour
4 ounces shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup unsalted butter, frozen
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Drain excess fat; transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
In a large bowl, combine bacon, flour, cheese, chives, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
Grate butter using the large holes of a box grater. Stir into the flour mixture.
Add buttermilk and stir using a rubber spatula until a soft dough forms.
Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 1 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Cut out 10-12 rounds using a 2 1/2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter. Place biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet; place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Remove biscuits from freezer. Place into oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
