- Preheat oven 200 degrees Celsius. Line a flat baking tray with nonstick bake liner.
- On a medium to high heat, heat a non-stick frying pan. Add bacon and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Allow it to cool completely.
- In a large bowl, sift flour. With your fingerprints, rub butter into sifted flour until mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Add cheese and bacon. Mix well.
- Make a small well in the centre of the mixture and add a cup of milk. Mix well with a flat bladed knife until mixture forms soft dough. Add more milk if required. Turn dough onto a lightly floured Duomat. Gently knead dough until smooth. Make sure not to overdo it.
- Pat the dough until approximately 2.5cm thick. Use a 5cm cutter to gently cut 16 rounds from the dough. Place them 1cm apart on nonstick bake liner. Sprinkle the tops of the scones with flour. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden and well risen. Serve them hot with butter.
Warm up your cold weather mornings with the tender baked goodness of cheese and bacon scones. Slathered with butter, these make a perfect addition to winter breakfast gatherings. Tweak it with ham, onions or anything else to suit your taste and liking.
