Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • Oil for frying

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work it into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, and chopped chives.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the dough should be slightly sticky.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it comes together.
  7. Roll out the dough to about 1/2-inch thickness and use a donut cutter to cut out donut shapes. If you don’t have a donut cutter, you can use a round biscuit cutter and a smaller cutter for the centers.
  8. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a deep skillet or Dutch oven to 350°F (175°C).
  9. Carefully place the donuts in the hot oil and fry for 2-3 minutes per side or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  10. Remove the donuts from the oil and drain them on a paper towel-lined plate.
  11. Serve your Bacon and Cheese-Stuffed Donuts warm and enjoy this savory delight!
