These old-fashioned Southern-style biscuits are dropped, not rolled.

Ingredients

white all-purpose flour

2 cup(s)

baking powder

2½ tsp

table salt

½ tsp

baking soda

tsp

regular butter

3 Tbsp, cold unsalted, cut into bits

cooked turkey bacon

4 slice(s), chopped

low-fat buttermilk

1 cup(s), low-fat

fat free skim milk

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray a 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. With a pastry blender or a large fork, cut in the butter to coarse crumbs. Stir in the bacon. Mix in the buttermilk and milk to form a dough.
  3. Drop the dough by 1/4-cup measures into the pan, making 16 mounds; push the mounds together. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Serve at once.

Notes

For best results, bake the turkey bacon in a 425°F oven until brown and very crispy, 12–15 minutes. Chop it after cooking.Although using a 1/4-cup measure or large spoon and a sharp snap of the wrist is one way to drop the dough onto the baking sheet, a 2-inch ice cream scoop with a spring-release handle is easier.
