    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    Its a traditional Scottish quick bread originally made with Scotch oats, cooked on a griddle, and cut into triangles.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.

      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.
