    French Tart's Note:

    Delicious cheesy scones with crispy bacon, a real treat for breakfast or high tea. These traditional scones are wonderful when served with fried or scrambled eggs for breakfast, alongside grilled tomatoes or mushrooms maybe. This is a recipe from an old W. I. (Woman's Insitute) cookbook and originates from the city of Birmingham, in the Midlands, England. Traditional comforting and British fare on a plate! Note: Brummie is the British slang term for people who come from Birmingham.

      Excellent - a delicious, savoury scone. Served with a plain fried egg and a serving of beans on the side to approximate a British fry-up. Thanks!
