Savory Cheese Scones

7 Jan

Now it’s the new year, I decided to do a savory from baking all the sweet stuff.   I think I have a cavity from munching on the candy from the holidays not to mention packing on some pounds.   I recently went to Seattle again and revisited Pike Place MarketPike Place MarketIf anything it was one of my favorite places to go as it seemed to have everything from artisan crafts, to specialty stores and delicious cafes which sell pastries.  If it was any indication, one could tell which cafe was the most popular by the line ups of people all braving the harsh elements.   The place was still buzzing from holiday mode; afterall, it was the 1st weekend of New Years and students were still on holidays.  En route back to Vancouver, we decided to stop by a local food grocer, and boy ohh boy, at last I found some Applewood Smoked Bacon.  I knew exactly what to do with them as my family had always been a fan of savory products, especially my younger siblings who show a fondness to cheese, thus I decided to make cheese scones with bacon.  MMM…..

3 cups all purpose flour plus more for rolling

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon ground black peper

1 stick well chilled unsalted butter

1 1/2 heaping cups of grated cheddar cheese ( I used a combination of Parmesan Reggiano and Sharp Cheddar Cheese)

10 slices of bacon, cooked nice and crispy and chopped into 1 inch pieces ( I used Hickory Smoked and Applewood Smoked Bacon)

1 large egg

3/4 to 1 1/2 cups buttermilk ( I used milk)

The outcome was cheesy and the bacon added more flavour to the scones.  As an option you could add chives into the batter hence spicing up the scones.  It was a favorite of my family.
