2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 Tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. onion, chopped and sauteed
2 Tbsp. bacon, chopped
3 eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup cheddar, grated


Preheat grill on a medium flame.

Using a medium-sized bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt, onions and bacon together. Let the mixture rise for about 30 minutes.

Add eggs, buttermilk and cheese. Continue mixing until firm dough is formed. If dough becomes a little watery, just add a little more flour.

Place dough on counter and sprinkle with flour. Then flatten it out with your hands. Using a circular cookie cutter, cut out 2-inch rounds.

Line a small pan with parchment paper and place the cutouts in the pan.

Sprinkle desired amount of cheese on top and place the pan on a grill, lid closed, for 15 minutes.

To plate, slice in half and spread with butter, or preferred topping.
