Bacon Scones

Out of all the scones I've made, I am pretty sure this is my first savory scone. It is filled with bacon, onions, and cheddar cheese. They were fantastic and we all loved them. They were great by themselves but would also be a great on the side of some eggs.

Have a great weekend!

Bacon Scones
Taste of Home

1 3/4 cups flour

2 1/4 tsp baking soda

1 tsp ground mustard

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

6 TBSP butter

2 eggs

1/3 cup milk

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

In a large bowl, combine first 5 ingredients. Cut butter into mixture. In a small bowl, combine milk and eggs. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in onion, cheese, and two thirds of the bacon.

Transfer the dough to a baking sheet and pat into a 7 1/2" circle. Cut into 8 wedges but do not seperate. Sprinkle with remaining bacon.

Bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
