How to make bacon scones with parmesan cheese
To prepare bacon scones with Parmesan cheese first heat the oven to 200°C (180° fan).
Grease a baking tray.
Heat a frying pan and cook the bacon without fat until browned.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.
Rub in the butter, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs and then stir in the grated cheese and bacon.
Make a well in the centre of the mixture and pour in just enough milk to form a soft but not sticky dough.
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead lightly until smooth.
Roll or pat out to a thickness of 2 cm.
Cut into 10 rounds with a 6 cm cutter.
Place on the baking tray and brush the tops lightly with a little beaten egg.
Bake the bacon scones with Parmesan cheese for about 15 minutes until golden brown.
Best eaten warm.
