8 slices of bacon
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
3/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons chives, chopped


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper {or a silpat}  and lay the bacon on the baking sheet in a single layer.

Grind pepper over the top of the bacon and sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake the bacon until it is nice and crisp, about 15 to 17 minutes.

When the bacon has finished cooking, remove the baking sheet from the oven and using tongs place the bacon on a plate to cool down.

When it’s cool enough, chop into bits and set aside.

Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl combined the  flour, brown and white sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper and mix well.

Add butter bits to the flour mixture and using your fingers, rub the butter and flower together until it resembles a coarse meal.

Make a well into the center of the coarse meal.

Add the buttermilk and lightly beaten egg.  Mix well until the dough is nice and sticky.

Fold in the bacon and chives and then turn the dough onto a well floured surface and roll the dough out to about 1 inch thick.

Cut the dough with biscuit cutters {mine were 3″ wide} and place the biscuits on a parchment lined baking sheet {or use a silpat} and bake at 400 degrees for 11-13 minutes.


Serve warm with butter.

Makes 9 biscuits.
