My husband has been building a deck for his mother.
Initially, I would have said WE are building a deck for her, but frankly, as year three of the deck project comes to a close, I’ve basically removed myself from the project.
So now, HE is building it.
Except, sometimes I tag along to help with the problem solving. Like, when things aren’t square or the boards are warped so badly it takes three men and a gorilla to get them into place.
I like to think of myself as the “big guns,” or more accurately, the foreman. The brains, if you will.
It’s not really true, but that’s the story I like to tell. It’s all about the way you frame it.
Sometimes I put my huge deck-building-problem-solving brains to work on other problems, like how can I turn my favorite scone recipe of all time into a savory scone?
Turns out it couldn’t really be easier. I started with my favorite recipe for buttermilk scones. You might remember it (my family certainly does!) from a few months ago when I used it to make these SO delicious Coconut White Chocolate Scones.
So, you start with that recipe, and just add some shredded cheddar and bacon bits, and you’re golden.
I love that combination of bacon, cheddar, and onion. It’s a classic.
These scones are not quite a meal by themselves, but they make an incredible snack, or they would be great with a bowl of chili.
And, double bonus… it doesn’t matter at all whether these are square. Make them any old shape you want!
- 2 cups flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 T. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- 4 T. cold butter, in small chunks
- ¾ cup buttermilk + 1-2 T.
- 1 egg
- ½ cup cooked and crumbled bacon
- ½ - 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- ½ cup green onion (about 3 onions, sliced all the way to the ends.)
- In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in cold butter using a pastry cutter, fork, or your hands.
- In a separate small bowl, combine egg and ¾ cup buttermilk. Add this to the flour mixture, and stir to combine. It should form a heavy, sticky dough.
- Add cheese, bacon, and sliced onions, and stir to combine.
- Form dough into a flat round disc, about 8 inches in diameter, on your baking sheet. Cut into 12 triangles.
- Brush top with remaining 1-2 T. buttermilk, and sprinkle with shredded cheddar to garnish.
- Bake at 375 for 20-22 minutes, until slightly brown on top.
