Bacon Chive Scones
This scone could be a complete breakfast! Made with our Biscuit & Scone Mix.
- ½ cup bacon (about ½ lb., cut into ¼-inch strips and cooked crisp)
- milk for brushing (optional)
1 bag Pamela's Biscuit & Scone Mix (13 oz)
- 1 tsp sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- pinch cayenne (optional)
- ½ cup butter or butter alternative, cut in ½" pieces, well chilled
- 1 cup milk or buttermilk
- ¼ cup chopped chives
- sea salt flakes (optional)
Fry bacon until crisp, drain well and allow to cool.
Place rack in top third of oven and pre-heat oven to 375°. In bowl of stand mixer, whisk together Biscuit & Scone Mix, sugar, salt, and cayenne. Using paddle attachment (or pastry blender), cut in butter until pea-sized crumbs are formed. Add milk, bacon and chives; mix until just incorporated.
Scoop dough onto a piece of greased parchment or plastic wrap and gently form into a rectangle, about 1½" high.
Cut with greased biscuit cutter (spray each time), and place on greased or parchment covered sheet pan. Brush lightly with milk and sprinkle with a few large crystals or flakes of salt before baking.
Bake 20 to 26 minutes, depending on size, until cracked and just starting to brown.
Use even more chives for a lively flavor. And if you can’t resist, add ½ cup grated sharp cheddar for a tasty addition.
