Homemade biscuits, the perfect start to a lazy Sunday morning. I'm still in my jammies. It feels good to have nothing planned.
I wasn't in the mood to cook all week. After feasting and being served in San Francisco, my routine had completely gone out the window. So I had to get my hands dirty and make something today.
I love savory biscuits. And I had thought of adding my favorite Korean staple kimchi to a biscuit recipe for a couple of months now. The combination of crispy bacon bits, Fulvi Pecorino Romano cheese and bite size kimchi was quite tasty. It reminds me of the new Italian Four Cheese Cheezits! I could eat a whole box in one sitting. I'm kidding. But I did devour a couple of these appetizing biscuits.
Adpated from the Mini Cheddar & Scallion Biscuits
3 Cups All Purpose Flour
2-1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Cup Cold Butter
1 Cup Fulvi Pecorino Romano Cheese (you could use cheddar or your favorite cheese)
6 Slices of Bacon, Chopped
3/4 Cup Diced Kimchi (squeezed of its juices)
2 Cups Grass Fed Buttermilk (shake well, I just realized I didn't shake my buttermilk enough, doh)
1. Preheat oven to 425º. A) Sift the flour, baking powder & soda, salt and garlic powder together and using a pastry cutter or two knives cut butter until only bits are visible. Add the Fulvi Pecorino Romano Cheese. Mix well. B) I baked my bacon in my convection oven lined with parchment paper at 375º until crispy, chop into bite size pieces and add to the mixture. C) Add the buttermilk. Mix well. D) Squeeze the kimchi of its juices, chop and add to the mixture and mix well until a dough forms.
2. On a lightly floured surface place the dough and pat and form the dough to about 2 inch thickness. Add more flour if your dough seems a bit wet. Using a floured biscuit cutter cut the dough and place on lined baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until biscuits appear golden.
I think kimchi pairs well with pretty much everything. Ok, not everything but it worked well with these biscuits.
Toddler and hubby approved! Enjoy.
