  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter cut into 8 pieces
  • 8 oz (1/2 pkg) bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onions finely chopped
  • 1 cup full fat buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet (1/2 sheet size) with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  • With the paddle attachment on the lowest setting, add the cold butter pieces, one at a time, until it is mixed into the flour. The crumb of the butter and flour mixed together should be about the size of small peas.
  • Add the blue cheese, bacon and green onions and mix again on low until well combined.
  • Pour in the buttermilk and mix on low just until the dough comes together. Don't over mix the dough.
  • Use a large cookie scoop (2 tablespoon capacity) to scoop the dough onto the baking sheet. You will get 12 scones. 
  • Bake the scones for 16 - 18 minutes, or until lightly browned. Rotate the sheet pan halfway through baking time. Allow the scones to cool on the pan for about 10 minutes before serving.
