Absolutely Amazing Breakfast Scones

Cheddar cheese, crispy bits of bacon and fresh green chives all mixed into a glorious breakfast scone! It’s hard to call this just a recipe for breakfast because you will want to eat these all day long at every meal!

Recipe Inspiration

This morning Little Finch and I made breakfast while the boys were still sleeping. I had decided to make breakfast scones that I had pinned from Annie’s Eats blog. The only thing I can come up with to say is they were amazing!!! and seriously sooo easy to make! We severed the scones with a side of strawberries, peaches and blueberries as well as extra pieces of bacon and coffee (made with our new EkoBrew filter) Lover Boy thought that it was the perfect breakfast and couldn’t stop complimenting us the entire breakfast! Woo hoo!

I followed Annie’s recipe for the most part but halved it because I didn’t have enough cheese for the whole recipe.

How To Make Cheddar Bacon Scones

Step 1: Mix Dry Ingredients with Butter

In a mixer bowl add dry ingredients and butter (I used tub butter because I didn’t have stick butter) and incorporate using the paddle attachment (if you have a KitchenAid) or you can use a knife and fork or pastry cutter

Incorporate until it resembles a cornmeal consistency (if I had used stick butter it would be more clumpy, which is fine)

Add cooked, diced bacon. I find it way easier to use kitchen shears when cutting bacon (again, I used more than the recipe called for)

I never have buttermilk on hand so I always make it. The conversion is 1c milk + 2 tbs vinegar. However, I halved that because I only needed 1/2c of buttermilk. *FYI when making your own the vinegar makes the milk kind of chunky, don’t worry!

These cheddar bacon scones were soooo good! They reminded me very much of the cheddar biscuits that are served at Red Lobster. Ahhh…such a sweet memory down memory lane!

When Clayton and I were first married and had real jobs we thought we were so rich!!! $$$ Finally living on a “real” person budget rather than a poor college kid budget! We were living in Georgia, bought our own beautiful house on 2 acres, and would always go to Red Lobster when they had their all-you-can-eat specials! Not only did we chow down on seafood, we chowed down on the biscuits! Back in the day, when we were young and could eat whatever we wanted and were still skinny!

I hope you guys enjoy these scones as much as we did…eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
