Easy Cheese & Bacon Scones

Easy Cheese & Bacon Scones!! 

Oh I do love a savoury Scone so these Easy Cheese & Bacon Scones are just the ticket. Why have a cheese scone when you can have a cheese & bacon scone 🙂 I think I prefer savoury scones to sweet ones?! How about you? Don’t get me wrong I love Scones with Jam and clotted cream occasionally but given the choice I usually plump for savoury! I think these are so good Cheese Scones are good but the addition of the smoky bacon just adds to it!

I’m so much more of a savoury girl than I am sweet. I wonder why that is? Give me crisps over chocolate any day! Maybe I need to skip both 🙂 hey ho, but life is short….

My advice here with these lovely savoury scones is to try and use smoked bacon, it gives the scones such a wonderful smokey flavour. These scones are so simple and easy to make, why not ask the kids to make them? Let them earn their keep 🙂

Lather them in butter and flipping enjoy! I guarantee they won’t last long!

Have a go – such an easy bake – easypeasylemonsqueezy..  Just remember one thing, never overwork the mix, be as light as a feather with the mix, NEVER EVER overwork. Your scones will be amazing!

If you like savoury stuff I’m sure you’ll also like these Smoked Bacon, Mushroom & Filo Tartlets 

So lastly how do you pronounce scone? Oh so many views!

There are two possible pronunciations of the word scone: the first rhymes with gone and the second rhymes with tone. In US English the pronunciation rhyming with tone is more common. In British English the two pronunciations traditionally have different regional and class associations, with the first pronunciation associated with the north of England and the northern working class, while the second is associated with the south and the middle class…. So which are you?  🙂

Let me know how you get on making these delicious and Easy Cheese & Bacon Scones!
