Amazing garlic, blue cheese, and bacon biscuits! Soft and moist. Great as a side with any meal.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper together into a large bowl. Mash grated butter into the flour mixture until the result resembles coarse crumbs. Mix blue cheese, bacon, and 2 cloves minced garlic into the flour mixture.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour buttermilk into the well and mix with your hands until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Drop mixture by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Switch oven to preheat the broiler.
Stir melted butter and 1 clove minced garlic together in a small bowl; brush over the top of the biscuits.
Heat biscuits under the broiler just until the tops are browned, about 2 minutes.

The quality of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as clear bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it yesterday , then clear it off the next day.
