Preheat the oven to 450°
In a small bowl toss together cheese, chives, and bacon. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry cutter, or two forks to cut in the butter.
Add the milk and stir just enough to bring the mixture together. This should make a soft dough. Gently fold in the cheese mixture.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead for one minute. Pat or roll dough out to 1/2 to 3/4in thickness.
Cut into rounds. You can use a biscuit cutter or the mouth of a glass cup.
For crisp biscuits, place far apart on an ungreased baking sheet. For fluffier biscuits, place them close together on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until brown on the top.
