Bacon Breakfast Scones


Most important meal of the day.

And so many people are out the door on an empty stomach with a thin lining of coffee/tea – so with a tiny bit of preprep you can have these ready to go and help make it one of the tastiest too

Also fantastic at feeding ravenous teenagers that are eating you out of house and home and you want something to make them happy with their home made packed lunch.


Makes a Bacon-dozen

  • 100g butter + a bit for greasing
  • half a pack of cooking bacon
  • 275g self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 150ml milk
  • 50ml sunflower oil
  • 1 egg
  • Some chopped chives
  • 150g grated mozzarella


Heat up your oven to 200C (180 if your fan assisted)

grease a cupcake tin / be prepared for this to need a tray and a half

fry off the bacon on a medium heat till crispy and golden, put to one side and allow to cool. Slice up into tasty chunks. Try not to snack on them.

In a mixing bowl combine the flour and baking powder, tsp of salt.

Rub in the butter till you have a nice bowl of what resembles breadcrumbs

In a small jug, measure out your milk, oil and then whisk in your egg, pour this into your mix and mix together-

at this point I am going to tell you to use a utensil that is not one of your flat mates forks… use a spatula or a proper wooden spoon – why> because forks can snap apparently.

add in your cheese, bacon and chives -this is when my fork snapped-

mix it up so nice and combined.

spoon into the cupcake tin and bake for 20 mins till golden

these are freezable and keep well in a tin also. So you make your batch, and they are going to be ready for on the go every morning without much thought- you can re warm them in the morning or eat them cold.
