Another slight variation of these cheese biscuits - great alongside a cheeseboard with onion chutney!
6 rashers of bacon, chopped
55g grated cheddar, or other hard cheese
115g plain flour
1 egg yolk
Splash of milk
Pre-heat your oven to 180c, and
grease/line your baking tray(s).
Add a little oil to a small frying pan and cook the chopped bacon pieces until lightly browned all over. Spread the cooked bacon pieces on a couple of sheets of kitchen towel to soak up any excess oil/fat.
Put the grated cheese, butter and flour
in a food processor and blitz until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Tip the mix into a bowl and add the egg yolk and a splash of milk to bring the dough into a firm but still slightly soft ball.
Knead the cooked bacon pieces into the dough until they are well distributed.
Roll the the dough out onto a lightly
floured surface, to the thickness of a £1 coin, and cut into biscuits
with a cookie cutter, re-rolling any offcuts, until all the dough is
Bake for 10 minutes, until they are golden but not brown.
And there you go!
