Ingredients

2 c
+ 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour, divided
1 Tbsp
baking powder
pinch
cayenne pepper
dash(es)
nutmeg
1 tsp
salt
8 Tbsp
cold butter, diced
1/2 c
half-and-half
2
eggs
4 oz
swiss cheese, diced
3
green onions, thinly sliced
7
strips turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 teaspoon water)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2
Prepare the bacon, onion and cheese. Toss these ingredients together with 1 teaspoon flour; set aside.
3
In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cayenne, nutmeg and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knives until the butter is pea-size. With a fork, lightly beat the eggs and half-and-half and add to the flour mixture. Add the bacon, onion and cheese mixture. Using a wooden spoon, fold mixture until it begins to come together.
4
Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead gently for less than one minute. Pat dough to ¾ to 1-inch thick and cut using 3-inch biscuit cutter (for large scones) or cut into squares or triangles. Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops of the scones with the egg wash.
5
Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
