Recipe: Turkey Bacon and Pepperjack Cheese Scones

Good Morning and happy Monday! And again, happy April! True to the tale, April has so far been full of showers, making the past few days a bit dreary here in Boston. Dreary weather though, of course, inspires lot of time in the kitchen and I was able to cook some delicious meals - including these amazing scones! I got the original recipe from Cooking Light, here, but instead of dried currants, I decided to spice these scones up a bit and I used turkey bacon and shredded pepperjack cheese instead!

These scones were so easy to make and they are delicious! All you need to make the scones are the following ingredients:

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons butter, chilled
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg white (not pictured)
2 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup pepperjack cheese
1 teaspoon milk, for light brushing
1 teaspoon sugar, for light sprinkling

First, cook your turkey bacon until crispy - but not burnt - and set aside to cool. Feel free to cook an extra slice to satisfy your turkey bacon cravings. (It's okay - I won't judge you.)

Next, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.

Then, add the butter, cut into smaller pieces, using your pastry blender until fully mixed in.

Next, mix together the 1/2 cup of milk, vanilla and egg white in a separate bowl.

Then, add it to the flour mixture and stir until well mixed, and turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and flatten slightly. Add your crumbled turkey bacon and shredded pepperjack cheese over the top of the flattened surface.

Then, knead together until well incorporated into the dough and move the dough to a baking sheet covered in parchment paper, flatten out a bit, and partially cut into 12 wedges. Then, brush lightly with remaining milk and sugar.

Place into your oven, preheated to 425 degrees, for 17 - 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Finally, remove from the oven, slice, and enjoy!

And the best part is that they re-heat easily in the microwave for 30 seconds, or you can pop them in the toaster oven for a slightly crisper taste. You could whip them up tonight for a delicious breakfast for the rest of the week! Enjoy!
