Recipe: Bacon Cheese Scones

I finally have a bacon recipe for you! I've gotten teased a lot on Facebook because I've never been a big fan of bacon. Well, recently I have been enjoying bacon as long as it's in something. I still don't really like it by itself. Anyways, these scones are really good! They're big and hearty - full of whole grains, organic bacon, and grass-fed cheese to get you ready for the day. A win with the husband, a win with me! Have one topped with extra grass-fed butter and it will be a win for you, too.

3 c. whole wheat flour
1 TBS. baking powder
1 TBS. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
½ c. butter
1 8-oz. package bacon
½ c. green onions
1 ½ c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 ¼ c. buttermilk

First, cook the bacon. I like to put it on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat and cook it in the oven so I don't have to babysit it. I cook it at 350° F for about 10 minutes. You might choose to cook it longer if you want it a little more done.

While the bacon is cooking, mill the wheat (if using freshly ground), grate the cheese, and finely dice the green onions.

Take the bacon out of the oven. I like it a little undercooked like this. It will continue to cook and render more while the scones bake, making them extra yummy. Chop up the bacon but not too small; it's nice to have big chunks that you can see and taste!

In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, black pepper, and salt.

Use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until they are about the size of peas.

Stir in the bacon, green onions, and shredded cheddar cheese.

Drizzle in the buttermilk, just enough so that a dough comes together. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead a few times. Form a big circle about a half-inch thick. Use a pizza cutter to slice the circle into 6 or 8 triangles.

Carefully move the circle onto a baking sheet that is well-greased on lined with a silicone mat. Bake at 375° F for 20 to 22 minutes. Remove and cool slightly before enjoying.

These are not just great for breakfast; if you cut them smaller, they make a great side dish to a dinner of soup or steak!
