Cheddar-Bacon Buttermilk Scone

Sarah Byrne


I love using buttermilk in my recipes and altered one calling for cream and baking powder. 1/2 pound of breakfast sausage may be substituted for the bacon and is equally as good. This is a great breakfast alternative to a sweet scone. Great grab 'n go breakfast when running late for school, work, etc.

Pictured is the scone using breakfast sausage.
