Bacon, Chive, & Cheddar Scones

Ingredients:

1/2lb bacon, cooked until slightly crispy & chopped

2 Tbsp (or more) chives, chopped

1 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded

2 cups AP flour

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

6 Tbsp salted butter, cubed

1/2 cup milk

1 egg

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350*F.
  2. To a large bowl, add the 2 cups of flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix.
  3. Add in the butter. Cut it in with a pastry cutter, a fork, or your hands. The butter should become about the size of peas.
  4. Add in the bacon, chives, and cheddar. Mix together.
  5. In a medium sized bowl or in the liquid measuring cup, mix together the 1/2 cup of milk and the egg.
  6. Add the egg & milk mixture to the flour mixture.
  7. Mix together until homogenous.
  8. With an ice cream scoop, scoop out the scone dough and put each scone on a baking sheet.
  9. Brush the scones with egg wash if desired. (I use 1 egg with a little water.) This will make your scones shiny and beautiful.
  10. Bake at 350*F for about 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!

    NOTE: Substitute the meat, the herb, or the cheese with your favorites! The sky is the limit. Get creative!
