Your morning scone goes savory with flaky, salty, cheesy Bacon Cheddar Scones.
I’m so excited you guys, a few weeks ago Braden and I sat down at the computer and finalized plans for our summer vacation this year. We are off to London (insert Joey Tribbiani voice of London) baby!
Since booking the tickets we’ve been on a fast track to planning our trip even though we don’t leave until the end of June.
Flat booked ? Food tour scheduled ? Day trips roughly outlined ? West End Shows picked ?
There are still small things to do like pick museums and historical sites to visit plus make a restaurant list and reservations. However my real goal is to figure out how many afternoon teas I can fit in during the 8 days we are there.
I’ve always had a love of British culture and I seriously can’t believe it’s taken this long to finally visit across the pond.
Mom and I used to sit and watch any and all Royal specials whenever they were on tv when I was younger, especially the Princess Diana ones. The first thing I said to Braden was that I must see the Queen (okay I know I won’t actually get to see the Queen but I will go to Buckingham Palace and Westminster.
All of those visits will coincide with one of my many afternoon tea jaunts. You think I’m joking, how many scones can one person possibly eat?
A lot. I love tea and scones and the little tea sandwiches and ooh especially all the pastries.
Oh man, there will be a lot of walking on this trip. 😉
To get in the mood for London, I figured I’ll start with my own scones. I love plain and sweet scones as much as the next person but most mornings I prefer something savory.
These bacon cheddar scones do just the trick with the flaky interior, little bits and pieces of bacon and English cheddar melted throughout. While I think they are best the day they are made, they certainly last a few days and are just excellent toasted up and make the perfect breakfast on the go.
