Hearty Breakfast Scones

Hearty Breakfast Scones
makes 1 dozen
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
10 slices cooked bacon, cooled and chopped
1 tablespoon onion, finely minced
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 egg
2 teaspoons water

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Add cheese, bacon and onion.  Mix until thoroughly combined.  While mixing slowly pour in buttermilk until dough pulls away from bowl.  Turn out dough onto a floured surface and pat into a flatted disk.  Cut dough into 12 wedges.  Place wedges onto parchment lined cookie sheets.  Whisk together egg and water. Brush egg wash onto scones.  Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve with juice, coffee or, as my son likes, a big glass of cold chocolate milk. Enjoy! :-)

These also freeze well for a quick breakfast on busy mornings.
