SAVORY BACON SCONES
I've been trying a variety of scones lately at the local cafes but they're usually sweet. I decided to develop a recipe for a savory scone that I think fits the bill nicely. This version makes eight small (2 1/2-inch in diameter) hemispheres with a bacon center in each. The recipe as written requires that you cool the bacon grease so it's helpful to cook and cut the bacon the day before and finish the scones the next day. I like to minimize the kitchen mess so I've optimized the dough-related work to be in the bowl rather than on the countertop.

- Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon grease into a small glass container and chill until set, at least 1 hour. Cut bacon strips into 1/4-inch slices.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine flour and 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder in a large bowl. Measure out 6 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons chilled bacon grease into the bowl. Knead grease into the flour mixture with one hand, turning bowl with the other, until dough is crumbly.
- Make a well in the center of the dough and slowly pour in 10 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons milk. Mix with one hand until milk is incorporated and dough feels wet to the touch. Form dough into a thick disc. Cut into 16 equal-sized pieces with a knife.
- Roll dough into individual balls and place them on the baking sheet. Flatten them into circles about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Place a tablespoon of bacon slices in the center of 8 circles. Top with remaining circles of dough. Seal so that the top circle meets the bottom using your fingertips.
- Whisk egg yolk with maple syrup in a bowl; brush over sides and top of each scone. Let scones rest, about 15 minutes.
- Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
- Place a clean towel on a plate, transfer scones to the towel and fold towel over to keep warm.

MAPLE BACON SCONES
In what just might be the ultimate breakfast treat, salty bacon is paired with sweet maple sugar and orange zest, then baked into light and tender pastries. Saving the bacon fat to use in the dough adds flakiness and an extra savory note to these irresistible glazed scones.

- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
- Add the bacon to a medium nonstick skillet and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until rendered, crisp and deep golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. Carefully pour 1/4 cup of the bacon fat into a small heatproof bowl and place in the freezer to cool quickly and solidify, 10 to 15 minutes.
- Whisk together the flour, 1/2 cup maple sugar, the baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Zest the orange and add it to the bowl.
- Cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice from one half into a small bowl. Reserve the other half for later. Add 1/2 cup milk to the bowl with the orange juice. (The milk will curdle.)
- Add the butter and chilled bacon fat to the flour mixture and gently rub it with your hands or use a pastry blender until it is coarse and mealy (you don't want to work it in completely). Fold in all but 1/4 cup of the reserved bacon.
- Whisk the egg into the curdled milk mixture. Add to the flour and butter mixture, folding until the dough just comes together.
- On a lightly floured surface, press the dough into a 3/4-inch-thick round. Cut the disk crosswise into 8 wedges and place on the prepared baking sheet.
- Squeeze the juice of the remaining orange half into a small bowl. Brush the top of each scone with the juice and sprinkle with the reserved bacon. Bake until the tops are golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, mix the remaining 1 cup maple sugar and 2 tablespoons milk in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave to warm slightly and just melt the sugar, about 30 seconds. Stir again, then let cool slightly (the mixture will thicken as it cools). Dip the tops of the scones in the glaze and place on a wire rack to harden, about 30 minutes.
BACON-CHEDDAR CHEESE SCONES
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a medium skillet, cook the bacon, stirring, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on paper towels. Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter, cheese, green onions, and pepper with a pastry blender or fork, and work just until it starts to form lumps and come together. Add the bacon. Add 1 cup of the cream and work just until it becomes a sticky dough, being careful not to overwork.
- Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat until it comes together. Form into 2 large circles, about 7 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick and cut each into 8 wedges with a sharp knife. Transfer to baking sheet with a spatula, leaving 1/2-inch space between each wedge. Paint the tops of the wedges lightly with the remaining 2 tablespoons of cream and bake until golden brown, 22 to 23 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the baking sheet. Serve warm.

BACON, EGG AND CHEDDAR SCONES
This wonderful recipe is from The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide by Paula Lambert, adapted slightly cause I want MORE of everything. These scones also freeze beautifully (fully-baked). I individually wrap in double-foil and then breakfast is ready for me when I don't have time to make it.

- Note before you get started: Shredding or cubing the cheese depends on personal preference; the shredded blends into the pastry, but the cubed leaves little chunks of cheese throughout. I'm a Libra, so I do both. (shred half and cube half ,-)
- Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C). Lightly butter a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
- Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Place in either a medium bowl or the work bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Cut the butter into the flour so that it is completely incorporated, using two knives, a pastry blender, your hands, or food processor until incorporated.
- Beat 2 of the raw eggs and the cream together and add to the dry ingredients. Mix or process just to incorporate the eggs into the flour and butter; do not overmix. Dump the flour-and-butter mixture into a clean bowl.
- Fold the cheese, scrambled eggs, and bacon into the flour mixture. It will be sticky and chunky. Stir and knead the dough as little as possible while distributing the cheese, scrambled eggs, and bacon throughout.
- Transfer the dough to a well-floured work surface. Pat the dough into a rectangle about 12 x 4 x 3/4 inch high. Cut the dough into three 4-inch squares. Cut the squares on the diagonal to form six triangles. Place the scones at least 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.
- Beat the remaining 1 egg with 2 tablespoons water and use this wash to brush the tops of the scones.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and serve warm.
