Cheese and Bacon Scones
We've adapted our Cheese and Bacon scone treats to a lower fat recipe, ideal for healthy eating, whilst still being able to enjoy your favourite treats. Most supermarkets and shops stock 30% less fat cheese which is still packed with smooth, rich flavour. We also chose lean, locally farmed bacon to complement our home baked delights. This easy recipe makes 12 scones:
100g grated low fat cheese
4 lean bacon rashers
380g self-raising flour
1 teaspoon mustard powder
80g low fat butter or margarine
1 medium egg
Approximately 200mls skimmed milk
Extra grated cheese for topping scones
How to make
Fry the bacon until crispy. Place on paper towel and chop into chunks.
Pre heat the oven to 190C.
In a bowl mix flour and mustard powder. Rub in butter with fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the grated cheese and bacon chunks. Stir.
Whisk the egg and milk together and add to the bowl a little at a time until it comes together as a dough.
Roll this dough until approximately 2.5cm thick. Cut into 12 scones. Brush top with milk and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake in the oven for 18-20 mins until they are golden brown.
They are tasty eaten straight out of the oven for a winter warmer treat.
