  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • ½ cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • cup gruyere cheese, grated
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup heavy cream


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Cut cold cubes of butter into the flour mixture until the butter is completely incorporated and the mixture has obtained a fine, mealy texture.
  • Add the bacon, cheese, green onions, and black pepper and mix together until well combined.
  • Fold in the buttermilk and mix together until just combined and the mixture has formed into a dough.
  • Form the dough into a disc and place in fridge for about 30 minutes.
  • Once chilled, flatten the disc to about ½ inch thick and cut the disc into circles using a 3 inch circle cutter (or a fluted cutter) and place the scones onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Brush tops of each scone with a small amount of cream and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the scones puff up and the tops just start to brown.
  • Serve warm with a side of honey butter.
