Ingredients

BLTA's:

Golden Biscuits, recipe follows

1 pound thick-cut bacon, cooked 

1 head Bibb lettuce, leaves separated, cleaned 

2 nice tomatoes, sliced 

2 nice avocados, sliced 

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Golden Biscuits:

2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

1 tablespoon baking powder 

1 teaspoon kosher salt 

1 teaspoon sugar 

1/2 teaspoon baking soda 

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cut into cubes 

3/4 cup buttermilk 

1 1/2 tablespoons honey 

Directions

  1. Split the still-warm biscuits and top with some bacon, a lettuce leaf, a slice of tomato sprinkled with salt, and a slice of avocado sprinkled with salt and pepper. Cover with the other half of the biscuit and enjoy.

Golden Biscuits:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and baking soda in a large bowl.
  3. Toss the butter in the flour and cut it in with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. With a rubber spatula, gently fold the buttermilk into the dough.
  4. Knead the dough a few times on a lightly floured work surface until it comes together. Pat the dough into an 8-by-10-by-3/4-inch rectangle. Cut out biscuits using a 2 3/4-inch biscuit cutter; cut straight down, don't twist. Cut the biscuits as close to each other as possible to lessen the scraps. Gather any scraps and knead just a few times to bring them together. Pat them back to an even 3/4-inch thickness, and cut out 3 or 4 more biscuits. (The reworked scrap biscuits might not rise as much as the other biscuits, but they will still taste good!)
  5. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle with the honey. Bake for 15 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
