Preheat the oven to 450°F. Stir together the dry ingredients. Grate the butter into the dry ingredients and stir lightly to combine. Use a fork or pastry blender to cut in the cold butter pieces until the mixture resembles a coarse meal with little pea size or smaller lumps throughout.
Whisk the egg into the milk and then pour into the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Stir just long enough to combine. The mixture should be somewhat dry and just a tiny bit sticky at this point. Add the cheese, bacon, and green chile. Stir or press lightly with your hands to combine.
Line a sheet pan or 9x13 pan with parchment paper and drop the batter by 1/2 cup portions onto the lined pan.
Bake for 18-22 minutes, until the bottom of the biscuits are lightly browned. The tops of these biscuits will not brown very much at all, although the pieces of cheese in the dough should toast nicely. Remove from the oven and transfer to a basket or cooling rack. Enjoy!
