Researchers in the U.K have developed a vegetable called super broccoli designed to fight heart disease. Not to be outdone, researchers in America have developed a way to stuff an Oreo inside another Oreo.
Taking a break from the heat and grilling, soup and sandwich night was a bowl of broccoli cheddar soup and some fresh bacon cheddar and chive biscuits.
The biscuits were adapted from a Bon Appetit recipe
3 ¼ cups bread flour
1 ½ tablespoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 ¼ teaspoons salt
½ cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into ½ inch cubes.
2 ½ cups packed, coarsely grated sharp cheddar cheese (about 12 ounces)
1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
1 ¾ cups chilled buttermilk
Position rack just above center of the oven and preheat to 425. Line a heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper. Cook the bacon in a heavy large skillet over medium heat until crisp and brown. (I used a cast iron pan). Transfer to paper towel to drain, and then chop coarsely.
