I love scones. My husband does now. This is a traditional scone but with a lot more flavor with smokey bacon, sharp cheddar, rich stout, and sour cream. These are best served warm, but when cooled, they make a great bread for breakfast sandwiches.

How To Make bacon & brew scones

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter. Stir in bacon and shredded cheddar. Mix milk and sour cream in a cup. Add stout. Mix liquid into flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Turn out onto a floured surface. With extra flour available for handling, press dough into a 1 inch thick and 6 inch wide rectangle. This may take repeating several times to use all of the dough. Cut the dough with a sharp knife into triangles. Place dough triangles on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Brush with egg wash made from one egg white and 1 TBSP water. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove from oven and cool.
