Bacon cheese & chive scones

 

Scones really are just triangular breakfast biscuits. As muffins are just an excuse to eat cupcakes for breakfast. But who cares??

Finally found a winning savory scone recipe! I attempted savory scones last year when a friend had a new baby. I thought it would be fast and easy food to eat for her but that batch turned out a bit greasy and too dense. This time, the recipe yields a fluffy inside with a crispy outside. I made sure to get a leaner bacon and render the crap out of it. These scones work great fresh or straight from the freezer. I did find that baking them in my toaster oven yielded uneven results and that using my standard oven is much better…I’ll just have to be more patient and let the oven warm up while I’m showering or something.

Now that I have a basic recipe I like, I’m going to try different combinations such as ham & gruyere; sausage, jalapeno and mexican cheese; olive, prosciutto and parmesan…the possibilities are endless!   Read more…
