Bacon, jalapeño and cheddar scones
These are really good! They're a minor modification of Cheddar cheese and scallion scones .
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
3 tbsp. cold butter, diced
1/2 cup diced Cabot extra sharp cheddar (2.5 oz. by weight)
2 scallions, cleaned, trimmed and chopped (both white and green parts)
1 jalapeño, minced
2 slices of cooked bacon, finely diced
- 1 large egg
- 1/6 cup sour cream (milk, cream, or ricotta can also be used)
- 1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
- hot sauce
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
Add the butter and combine with your fingers.
Add the cheddar cheese, scallions, jalapeños, and bacon. Combine.
Add the egg and sour cream mixture.
Form into a square or circle a little over an inch thick.
Bake on parchment paper on a sheet pan for 20 minutes. Because of the cheese, parchment is highly recommended.
It was so good I had another piece!
