Bacon Parmesan and Scallion Scones

This post is dedicated to all you bacon lovers out there. Yes, this post on BACON, parmesan and scallion scones. Don’t you just hear it calling your name? Wait. A savoury scone? YES. A savoury scone. Surely scones don’t have to be served sweet, with clotted cream and jam? I think not. I would like to think that the addition of bacon to scones (or to anything) makes it perfect. For those who still like their scones sweet, I’m happy to report that I crisped the bacon with some brown sugar. Add some parmesan and scallions and there you have it – the perfect meal all in a scone. Are you convinced yet?

You may be surprised to hear that I was not a huge scone fan. That may explain why you have not (till now) seen a scone post on this blog. You see, when I was young, my mom liked to buy these raisin scones from a certain popular bakery. Their breads may have been nice but their scones were rather dense, floury and unappetising. I didn’t like them and since they were the only scones I came across, I grew up with the impression that scones were dense, floury and unappetising things. It wasn’t only till fairly recently when I tasted some better scones that I changed my mind. I am convinced though, that I still prefer savoury scones (especially if there’s bacon in it).
