Back when I worked at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital every now and then I would treat myself to the most delicious scone that was ever made. I told myself that one day I would make these at home because they can’t be that hard, right?
It had some of my favorite things in it like cheese, green onion, and bacon.
That day had come when I was craving one of these delicious scones for breakfast today and I was determined to figure out the recipe. After much searching it was finally time to give it a go and see if I could get close to making these amazing scones.
Let me just say that this recipe has got to be THE recipe that the original was made from because it’s exactly the way I remember it tasting.
First of all you need to cook about 6 strips of bacon till crispy then let cool so you can crumble it up into your batter.
Next, you want to put all your dry ingredients together in your kitchen aid.
1 1/2c. all purpose flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. mustard powder (this is a very important ingredient).
Whisk those together then you want to grate in your 1/3c. butter, yes I said grate. Take a cheese grater and grate in your butter (make sure it’s straight out of the refrigerator).
Next grate in your 1/2c. extra sharp cheddar cheese.
The yummiest cheese EVER!
I’m sure any extra sharp cheddar would work as well.
Now cut up about 1 large bulb of green onion into your batter.
Next, crumble up your bacon and add that to the bowl.
Put on your dough hook attachment for your kitchen aid and then while it’s on low speed add 2/3c. buttermilk. It will all start to come together into one big clump. It will be sticky but make sure it’s not wet (did that make sense?).
Now put it out on a greased cookie sheet and flatten it down into a circle that is about 1″ thick.
Next cut it like a pizza into about 8 sections (it doesn’t need to be separated just make divisions in the dough).
Put it into a 375 degree oven for about 22 minutes until they are golden brown and have some spring to them when touched.
Grab some coffee or tea and sit back and enjoy!
