    The question is have you ever had a Bacon Cheddar Scone?

    What Is A Sone?

    Its a traditional Scottish quick bread originally made with Scotch oats, cooked on a griddle, and cut into triangles. Modern versions are simular to rich biscuits and are usually made with flour and baked in the oven. Sometimes they are cut into rounds, squares, triangles, or diamond shapes. They can be savory or sweet.

    Recipe For Bacon-Cheddar Scones

    2. Two Cups All Purpose Plain Flour.
    3. One And One Half Tablespoons Baking Powder.
    4. One Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.

    Instructions For Making Your Bacon Cheddar Scones

    1. Start off by pre-heating your oven to 450 degrees. Stir together 1/2 cup of the sugar, the all purpose flour, and next three ingredients in a large bowl. Cut your lard into the flour with a couple of forks. Mix until crumbly.

    Add your cheese and the bacon and mix well to combine. Whisk together your milk and eggs in a bowl and add to the flour mixture. Atir until all the ingredients get moist and a dough forms.

      You are crazy. Lol This would make for another amazing Hub. Why post it as a forum instead? These look delicious by the way! Are you supposed to eat them with any kind of sauce or liquid? Like syrup, gravy or jam?

      lol Lard is actually a very common ingredient in cooking. It's essentially shortening, but actually much healthier. Instead of man made cooking oils chocked full of harmful chemicals shown to cause cancer, lard is natural animal fat and very safe to cook with. You can find it in a tub similar to shortening in the cooking aisle at any grocery store.

        I know it's still used quite often, but I have never tried it. I use olive oil or butter. I've only bought shortening once and I ended up letting it go bad. Not that it really matters, the scones look/sound wonderful.

    I like posting some recipes in the recipe forum. The scones are delicious and if it was available in my area I would use a brand of shortening called Crisco. Its a great brand.
