Method for the Cheesy Bacon Scones

Prep 20mins. Cook time 15-20 mins

Cook the bacon until golden, let it cool and chop into chunks.

Combine the flour and butter in a mixing bowl by rubbing together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and grease a 12-hole muffin tin.

Mix the egg with ¾ of the milk, the mustard and the seasoning.

Then pour a little at a time of the liquid mix into the dry mix and gently blend until the mixture comes together and forms a dough.

Add the bacon bits and most of the cheese.

Spoon the batter into the muffin tin holes and finish with a little grated cheese to the top of each muffin.

Put in the oven and bake for 15 -20 mins until the scones have risen and are golden brown. Serve warm.
