What's On Your Plate? : Thanksgiving

Good Morning!
I decided to share a previous post I wrote from a couple of years ago on one of the dishes I make for Thanksgiving.  It deserved to be posted again because it is flat delicious!


Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I know like many of you we are all getting our recipe lists in order. I thought it would be great to share some recipes with all of you. So, I will be posting more often as the Thanksgiving Day approaches and letting you know what will be on my plate..yum : )

Oh, these are so good!!!! Cheddar, Bacon and Fresh Chive Biscuits. Believe me these are so easy to make and take no time to cook. They are so delicious that you will have to make a good amount of them cause you can't eat just one.

Here is the recipe:

yield: Makes 12
active time: 25 minutes
total time: 55 minutes

6 thick-cut bacon slices
3 3/4 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, plus melted butter for brushing
2 1/2 cups (packed) coarsely grated sharp cheddar cheese (about 12 ounces)
1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
1 3/4 cups chilled buttermilk
Honey (optional)

Position rack just above center of oven and preheat to 425°F. Line heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper. Cook bacon in heavy large skillet over medium heat until crisp and brown. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain, then chop coarsely.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in processor; blend 5 seconds. Add butter cubes. Blend until coarse meal forms, about 30 seconds. Transfer flour mixture to large bowl. Add cheddar cheese, fresh chives, and chopped bacon; toss to blend. Gradually add buttermilk, stirring to moisten evenly (batter will feel sticky).
Using lightly floured hands, drop generous 1/2 cup batter for each biscuit onto prepared baking sheet, spacing batter mounds about 2 inches apart.
Bake biscuits until golden and tester inserted into center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Brush biscuits lightly with melted butter. Let cool 10 minutes. Serve biscuits warm or at room temperature with honey, if desired.
