Bacon-Cheddar-Green Onions Scones : ABC June 2013

Our bake for this month at Avid Baker's Challenge (ABC) is Bacon-Cheddar-Chive Scones, a delicious savoury scones, recipe taken from King Arthur Flour's (KAF) website. We, at ABC is currently baking from KAF recipes until end December. 

When this recipe was chosen for our June bake, I thought that it sounded familiar. Checked from my file of printed recipes, and found it, I actually printed this recipe from KAF' website on 3rd Nov 2011!  It took a little push, and one and half years later, to make this savoury scone, thanks to ABC! And another recipe which I've printed at the same time, is our coming bake in August!


The original recipe uses chives, but I have replaced with green onions. I do have some chives growing in my backyard, but when I made the dough, it was already about 9.30pm, and it was a little too late to go round snipping herbs from my backyard. I do have some green onions in my fridge, so that was what I used. 


I made the dough and placed them in the baking pan, and kept it in the fridge. The next morning, at 4.45 am, (yes, it was that early!) I baked them for the kids' breakfast before school. So it was all nice, moist and tender when they had it for breakfast. 



I made only half a recipe, and got eight small scones, just perfect for breakfast. The only changes I've made was to substitute the chives with green onions, and to add some coarse black pepper powder. The salt was reduced by half, and it still turns out a little salty, next time I will not add any salt, because the cheese, bacon and butter are already salted.



Photo taken at about 5.30am, that explains the different colour lighting from the photo below...


....  taken at about 10.00 am when the sun is up! Haha! There's only one piece left for me! 
These scones are buttery, moist, tender and yummy! A breeze to make! Make the dough the night before, which is very quick to put together, place the dough in the fridge and bake the next morning for breakfast, fresh and delicious!

For the full recipe, you may get it from KAF's website, here.

  4. Joyce, those scones must be packed full of flavours! And with bacon whoo hoo! Do we need to bring the refrigerated dough to room temperature or can just put in straight into the oven?

    1. Hi Phong Hong,
      I took out the pan of ready-cut dough and let it sit on the kitchen counter while I preheat the oven. Bake as usual, with a minute or two extra to the baking time.

  12. Thanks for letting us know that the dough can be put in the fridge and baked fresh the next morning! I love the different colors in yours. These were a hit in my house too (I omitted the bacon and reduced the salt and they were OK for us).

  22. Though I always ferment my bread doughs in the fridge I didn't think of doing this with the scones. Good idea. And good looking scones!
    After reading some of the other reviews, I also cut down on the salt. We loved them.
