Bacon Cheddar Drop Biscuits

You can't have the baked potato soup without these loaded biscuits!
I found these also on Two Peas and Their Pod right by the baked potato soup recipe. They highly recommended them as do I! I loved these biscuits, mainly because I love biscuits with bacon and cheese. They go hand in hand when you add them in biscuits. 

Bacon Cheddar Drop Biscuits
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
2 green onions, finely chopped
3 strips cooked bacon, chopped
1 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spay and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Mix in cold butter with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in Cheddar cheese, green onions, and bacon. Add buttermilk and stir with a spatula until just combined.
3. Drop round spoonfuls of dough, about three tablespoons, onto prepared baking sheet.  Brush biscuits with melted butter. Bake 15-17 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Remove from oven and serve warm.
Makes 15-17 biscuits (I got 11 because Dave made them overly huge :})
