"This wonderful recipe is from The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide by Paula Lambert, adapted slightly cause I want MORE of everything. These scones also freeze beautifully (fully-baked). I individually wrap in double-foil and then breakfast is ready for me when I don't have time to make it."
Serving Size: 1 (182 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"These are just wonderful! Perfect texture. A great all in one breakfast. Thanks for sharing."
"Oh yum...TDF!<br/>So good straight from the oven, a perfect brekky on the go...takes a litle preparation but well worth it. Thanks for posting!"
"Mmm... a brekkie on a go!"
"I used half & half and some less-salty bacon. These were pretty good. I'm wondering though if perhaps I'm simply not a scone person. Granted, I didn't eat them fresh from the oven. Thanks for the recipe. I'll try them again some day soon."
"These scones are great ! I made a few minor changes like I only used 4 tbsp of Butter and used half and half instead of the heavy cream and the taste and texture was super. These scones are a great, all in one breakfast. Thanks for sharing your recipe."
"Ive made these 3 or 4 times now as a quick breakfast for when we head out to our friend's remote cabin early in the morning. I sometimes add broccolli and cube pepper jack in addition to the shredded mozzarella for an extra kick. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"5 stars fresh out of the oven, beautiful. Looking forward to a family brunch so I can pull this one out. Still good the next morning, we've all got one in our lunch box. Was a little doubtful about adding scrambled eggs but it was all good. I think I'll also give them a go as pizza scone as per another reviewer. Thanks for sharing."
"I used milk and they turned out great. My husband loved them too!"
"Yummy! Thanks for posting this. I used it as a base to make pizza scones. I skipped the scrambled eggs, substituted pepperoni for the bacon and mozzarella for the cheddar. Quick and filling - a perfect dinner!"
"I didn't want to leave a star review because I made a substitution that I'm sure changed the outcome of this recipe. I didn't have heavy cream so I just used 2% milk. The dough was extremely sticky, so much so, that I'm sure I wasn't able to shape it as well as I would have. The scones turned out fine, but they were a lot more like biscuits than scones. I'd definitely stick with the heavy cream next time! They still turned out good, but they'd only get about a 3 star rating using regular milk. Thanks!"
"Absolutely a great appetiser ,very buttery and high in calories but in small doses ,they are fantastic.I sifted an extra teaspoon of salt in for taste. Good work once again Evelyn!"
"These were tasty, light in texture and very buttery. Great as a grab and go Breakfast. Thanks"
"These scones made an excellent breakfast for my husband and me, with lots left over! I made a couple of changes, to use what I had on hand (and avoid the grocery store first thing this morning!) -- I left the scrambled egg out, and used 1/2 cup of packaged crumbled bacon and 2 cups of shredded Jarlsberg swiss instead of cheddar. All in all, an excellent basic scone recipe with a twist -- am looking forward to leftovers for breakfast during the week. Thanks."
"Getting ready to make these for the fourth time and I discover I haven't reviewed them! The first time was Mother's Day my DH made them for me, and I have since made them myself. The only change we have made is to increase the bacon by two strips. One DS loves them with hash browns on the side."
"I don't think they need to be sweeter, I am used to hearty scones, not sweet ones. These were really good. The servings are quite big (well, more like too many calories...), so I might increase the portions to 10, and maybe leave out the scrambled eggs (I don't think they are needed), use a stronger cheese, and skim down the cream a little, since they did end up quite rich. Maybe I will even try the Egg Beater (Yieks!). I will definately make these again and tweak on it (ONLY due to personal weight issues...lol)"
"Messy, so be careful of your nails. My only difference was to use buttermilk b/c I didn't have cream. They tasted rich, looked wonderful but i really felt it needed a TOUCH of sweetness.. I WILL make these babies again, using a drop of honey or applesauce. THANKS Evelyn, really TERRIFIC!!!!"
"These are yummy!! My DH says they are "delightful". I added a little less chese but it was still very cheesey. I also used a mixture of plain yogurt and skim milk because I didn't have heavy cream. They were very light and flaky. A great alternative to a sweet scone. It took a little longer to make these than others I've made but it's well worth it."
"I can't believe I forgot to rate this:0 Wonderful recipe! I love the whole thing. I used Olde English Cheddar and thick cut bacon that I baked with a light sprinkling of brown sugar. Very hearty portable meal. A KEEPER=)"
