Big Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit (like Hardees)... Manna of the Gods!

Oh Ya, Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit... Manna of the Gods!

I really should stop cooking food like this...she said with biscuit crumbs flying. What is it, with me and grease lately? God these are so good, when you add the bacon egg and cheese...exactly like Hardees.
I prefer not to roll my biscuits, they are much more tender, if shaped with wet hands. 

2-1/2cups flour
2Tbl. sugar
1/2tsp. salt
1-1/2Tbl. baking powder (4-1/2tsp.)
1/2cup vegetable shortening
1cup buttermilk
1/4cup water

You'll also need:
2Tbl. melted butter, with 1/4tsp. salt stirred in.

Preheat the oven to 450*F.
Whisk together the dry ingredients.
Cut in the shortening, until crumbly.
Combine the buttermilk and water, and stir it into the flour mixture.
Knead the dough a minute or so, then shape into 6 large biscuits, with wet hands, and place them on an un-greased cookie sheet. Allow to rise 10 minutes.I set it on top of the stove, as the oven is warming.
Bake until golden brown, and brush with the salted butter.

Bacon, egg and cheese biscuit tips:
Bake the bacon
Add 1Tbl. milk to an egg and beat until well combined. Heat a little oil in a nonstick frying pan, and salt it.
Pour the beaten egg into the skillet. (It will be a thin layer) and allow it to cook undisturbed until set.
Set a slice of cheese in the center of the egg, and fold the egg over it.
Split the biscuit, add 2 slices of bacon, and the egg. My favorite breakfast food!
