  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crisp and brown. Transfer to paper towels and drain . Chop and set aside.

  3. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl.

  4. Using a food processor , pastry cutter, or fingertips incorporate the chilled butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the Cheddar cheese , fresh chives , and cooked bacon. Mix to distribute the ingredients evenly.

  5. Add the buttermilk and stir just until moistened. Using 1/2 cup dough for each biscuit and using a cup measure or an ice cream scoop , drop the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing the mounds about 2-inches apart.

  6. Bake until the biscuits are golden brown on top, about 15 to 20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Serve the biscuits warm with melted butter.
