    These are a savoury version of an English favourite. They are wonderful served slightly warm, split in half and spread with butter.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 220°C.
    2. 2
      Grill the bacon until starting to crisp. Cool and chop into small dice.
    3. 3
      Sift the flour into a mixing bowl along with the mustard powder, baking powder and cayenne.
    4. 4
      Using your hands rub the butter into the mixture until it's fully blended and it looks like fine breadcrumbs.
    5. 5
      Stir in the bacon, 3 /4 of the cheddar and chives.
    6. 6
      Mix the beaten egg with the buttermilk. Stir into the flour mixture until it's formed a smooth dough, but go lightly, otherwise the scones will be very heavy.
    7. 7
      Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1 inch thickness. Cut into 6 circles with a 2 1/2 inch cutter.
    8. 8
      Place scones on a greased baking sheet. Brush with milk and sprinkle over remaining cheddar.
    9. 9
      Bake for 15 - 20 minutes.

      These are magical scones...they just disappeared from the table. I doubled the recipe and made a few changes. I used 4 egg whites, turkey bacon, and fat free buttermilk. I also substituted Brummel & Brown spread instead of butter. I was lazier than Stormylee and just did drop style, worked out just fine. Will appear on my table again, thanks
