I felt I needed to post this recipe immediately - before everyone finalized plans for their valentine's day menus. If you need bread, a side, want to make your honey brunch or what have you - stop what you're doing and make these biscuits!
I know what you're thinking...biscuits aren't chocolate, they don't scream romance, they're rustic and a little misshapen (at least mine are). It doesn't matter. They are delicious, tender, and filled with bacon, cheddar and chives. Most of the men I know would go gaga for these. Rafe actually called them 'tremendous'.
I've tried to make biscuits before - and I've always failed miserably. Biscuits used to be my white-whale...but these were super easy to prepare. Toss the dry ingredients in the food processor, add in your butter. Add to a bowl with the chopped bacon, shredded cheese and chives - add buttermilk and bake. Super simple!
I brought them to dinner at my parent's house - and they were gobbled up. The combination of the salty pork, the creamy cheesy and the oniony chives are an obvious win-win-win. I have one left that I'm saving for breakfast for my birthday tomorrow.
The recipe is featured on epicurious....BISCUITS Just a note - if you live near a whole foods pick up their black forest bacon - its outrageous. The recipe calls for 6 strips of bacon - so ask the butcher for 8....Just in case you're anything like me and cannot resist crispy bacon.
