So delicious, but so simple to make. Preheat oven to 425*F
What you need: 2 cups flour; 4 tsp baking powder; 1/2 tsp salt; 1 Tbs garlic powder; 1 tbs onion powder; 2 tbs parsley flakes; 1 tbs dried chives; 1/2 cup shortening; 5 - 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled; 1 cup finely grated cheddar cheese; 1 cup milk.
What you do: mix flour, salt, baking powder, and seasonings in a medium bowl. Cut in the shortening until the mixture is like coarse meal. Add crumbled bacon and cheese. Stir with your hands until well blended. Use a spoon to stir in the milk just until all the dry ingredients are picked up. Knead a few times. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, and pat into circles about 3-4 inches across. Bake on a cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 425*F.
Serve with butter, and enjoy. You can eat this with a meal like stew, or pasta. Goes with almost anything.
