Gluten Free Rustic Bacon And Cheese Scones
Savoury Gluten Free Rustic Bacon and Cheese Scones are always a big hit at our house. When it comes to gluten free baking, there is nothing simpler to make than gluten free scones. In this recipe, the three basic ingredients are bacon, cheddar cheese and green onions.
The incredibly cheesy scones have just the right amount of crispy bacon, and they are mildly flavoured with fresh green onions. Honestly, the combination of these three ingredients makes the most delicious bacon and cheese scones.
What is a gluten free scone?
When we think of scones, we thing British tea time. Authentic British scones are typically served with tea as a snack. The scones are relatively plain and are served with clotted cream and jam. In North America, scones are often served with morning coffee, and they can be sweet or savoury scones.
The sweet scones often include berries, nuts, oats or raisins. Sometimes they are topped with a glaze, such as the famous gluten free maple oat nut scone. When it comes to gluten free savoury scones, they often included cheese, bacon, chives, onion, herbs, even sun dried tomatoes.
Here are three important steps to follow for the best results!
- First, briefly cook the bacon with the green onions. This allows for the bacon to be fully cooked before mixing it with dry ingredients. The bacon will be nice and crispy, and the green onions are flavoured with bacon
- Once the bacon is cooked, combine dry ingredients, including cheese with the bacon mixture
- The third step is the most important! Add the milk and mix until the dough starts to come together. DO NOT OVERMIX, or the scones will become hard 🙁 Done!
Now that you have the bacon and cheese scone mixture ready, roll it out to about 1 1/2 inch thickness, and cut into desired shapes. The oven temperature is critical! And, the oven has to be hot before you start baking the scones to achieve the best results! The high heat quickly bakes them without drying the scones out.
Gluten Free savoury scones are always popular because they can replace sandwich bread or serve them with hearty soups and stews. The gluten free cheese scones make an excellent addition to brunch, especially with savoury toppings such as Smoked Salmon.
If you are thinking of making a light meal, serve the gluten free cheese scones with Smoked Salmon Asparagus and Goat Cheese Quiche or High Protein Stuffed Breakfast Peppers. Need more scone recipes? Check out our list of gluten free scone recipes!
