Bacon and Cheddar Scones

These scones are pretty good. I think the onion is somewhat overpowering, I might would cut down on that. I think some chopped green chilies might be good too. Not a bad treat for breakfast though.


3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick cold butter cut into pieces
6-8 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped into pieces
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 to 4 green onions chopped
1-1/2 cups buttermilk

Mix flour, baking powder and salt together. Cut in butter until flour resembles coarse meal. Stir in cheese, bacon, and onions. Add buttermilk. Turn onto a floured board and shape into a circle. Place circle on baking sheet (I covered mine with parchment paper). Score circle into 8 pieces. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

YUM. Those look awesome, but I'm a bread-aholic so it all looks good to me! (And bacon and cheese? Divine.)

You SHOULD try the marshmallowy icing. It's great!

I like bacon and cheddar but in your recipe I didn't see any bacon mentioned. I think so Canadian bacon would be best.
