Description

These scones are loaded with cheddar and bacon, making them perfect for a hearty morning breakfast.

From Meseidy Rivera of The Noshery.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces, weight Bacon
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Bacon Drippings
  • 6 Tablespoons Cold Butter, Diced
  • 4 ounces, weight Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • 2  Cold Eggs
  • ½ cups Cold Heavy Cream, Plus More For Brushing On Scones

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Heat a medium size pot over medium-high heat. Add all the bacon to the pot. Cook bacon, stirring occasionally, until fat is rendered and bacon starts to crisp. Transfer bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Set the bacon drippings aside to cool.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk flour mixture until well combined. Add 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings to the flour. Stir together using a fork. Add butter to the flour mixture and cut into the flour with a fork or pastry cutter until flour looks crumbly. Add shredded cheese and bacon crumbles to the flour mixture, reserving some cheese and bacon for garnish.

Whisk eggs and cream together until well combined. Add cream mixture to the flour mixture and mix together until just combined. Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead until dough comes together. Roll dough 3/4-inch thick rectangle. Cut the dough into 6 squares and cut the squares in half at a bias to make triangles. Brush the scones with heavy cream, sprinkle with shredded cheese and bacon crumbles.

Transfer to baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 25–30 minutes or until golden brown.
