Cheesy Bacon Sticks

Cheesy Bacon Sticks

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
6 ounces shredded white cheddar cheese
6 bacon slices, cooked until crisp and crumbled
1 cup plain yogurt

Preheat oven to 350

In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the cubed butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cheese and crumbled bacon - toss well to combine. Pour in yogurt and stir just until combined.

Scoop the mixture out to a lightly floured surface and knead just until it forms a dough, about 10 to 15 times. Pat the dough out until it is about a 8" square.

Evenly divide the dough in half, then cut each half into 8 sticks - place each stick onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake until golden, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly before serving.

Makes 16 sticks.

  1. This looks like THE ticket for early morning rush breakfasts in our house. I will try some this week-end and let you know how the crew rates them. The crew being a husband, an 11 and a 9 year old!

  2. Lisa - I look forward to hearing how they turn out!
