Bacon Cheddar Breakfast Scones
Ooh, these are good!
1 1/4 cup almond flour (press down into cup to measure)
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and chopped (more would be good too)
1/4 c. melted bacon fat
1 large egg, beaten
Mix all thoroughly, make 5 balls and place on greased cookie sheet (I used a pie pan). Mash down a bit, or shape into scone shape (whatever that means to you).
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until firm.
I dare you to let these cool before you eat them.
My stomach actually growled when I read this.
That sounds wonderful! Would it be possible for you to post the weight of almond flour - either grams or ounces! (I never know what a cup is here in the UK and when trying recipes using cups etc (I bought some measuring cups from Lakeland) I can never tell "if it is meant to be like this"!!!
Breadsauce: This is a very forgiving recipe. Just dump and lightly tamp and see what you get. You can always add more flour. I used Trader Joe's Almond Meal, which doesn't look like the almonds were peeled. Your flour may be different, so just give it a whirl. You should be able to pick up a blob of dough and shape it in your hands, so you can adjust flour amounts till you get that.
I also used more or less the same recipe to make some chocolate scones, adding just a tad of liquid sweetener to the batch (maple syrup, 'cause that's what I had on hand), and using melted butter for the oil. I chunked up a chocolate bar (about a half cup worth) for the chocolate. These were AWESOME hot from the oven -- the chocolate chunks all melty and stuff. They're pretty wonderful this morning, cold from the fridge, with my morning coffee, too. I think I'll add vanilla next time. Maybe a spoonful of espresso.
I'll use this basic recipe to experiment with other flavors -- banana walnut comes to mind, or blueberry. Or sausage. Ooh, orange marmalade! Lemon poppyseed! The mind boggles at all the options. I'll bet using coconut oil for the oil will add a terrific flavor and make the final result a tad crisper.
Let me know what flavors you come up with.
YAY!! thanks for sharing - these sound absolutely delish!
I had the opposite problem this morning...1 cup almond flour is about 100 grams..so for this recipe you need 125 grams.

Anything with bacon and cheddar cheese is great in my book.
