Savory Bacon Cheddar Scones with chives

These Savory Bacon, Cheddar and Chive Scones are flaky and loaded with the taste of bacon and cheddar cheese and seasoned with chives.   We love a great southern biscuit but there is no denying our love for these breakfast delights.

Savory Bacon, Cheddar and Chive Scones


I remember when my son was in the fourth or fifth grade and was into all things Medieval such as Knights, Hobbits, and Jousting.    In fact, I believe we still tell the tale when he stole borrowed a plastic spaghetti serving spoon from the kitchen for his catapult.   No, it wasn’t clean, still had spaghetti sauce on it from dinner.   Unfortunately Fortunately the missile aka rock was flung straight into the dirt from his invention.  The catapult was abandoned with the offending spoon still attached.   And I swear he was never a boring child.   I loved the challenge of raising children, and a challenge it is/was.

Around this same time he asked me to make scones.   And I had never made them and not sure what happened but they were just horrible.   I still remember his sad face that when he learned that he did not like a dish that was served in most of his beloved movies/books. #SoSad  #bestmomeverNOT

But of course, I didn’t realize that scones could be Savory Bacon Scones like these.  I have now learned to produce a great scone and I know he would love these,   And just maybe he will serve them in his Mead Hall (aka Man Cave) because, thank goodness, he still loves all things medieval.

I may not have been the best mom ever but it wasn’t from lack of trying and never giving up.   Yeppers, only took me a few years but I have finally mastered the art of making scones.   I know you or your young knight/lady will fall in love with these scones.   So go for it before that little one, grows up and runs away from home goes off to college.
