Pastries of any kind are my favorite thing to make, eat, and share. As far as scones go, the sweet variety are my go-to, but this time I thought I'd try a savory version. (Although let's not forget about Double-Glazed Pumpkin Spice Scones.) I loved the combination of the cheddar, saltiness of the bacon, and the depth of flavor that the green onion provides. Hubby is still more of a fruit scone fan, so that leaves more of these Savory Bacon and Cheddar Scones for me!
These savory scones are great for breakfast or brunch, or if you would like to serve them as biscuits, they're great that way too. All you need to do is cut them in circles instead of wedges. Should you find that you don't eat all of these in one setting, please avoid re-heating them in the microwave. Scones lose their crispiness when microwaved and can almost take on a chewy texture. For best re-heating results, place scones on a baking sheet or a piece of aluminum foil in a 375 degree oven for 5-7 minutes until warmed through. Believe me, the results are almost as good as fresh baked.
