Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Scones
Although I don’t make them much anymore, scones one of my all time favorite things to make for breakfast. My family loves scones, too, and they also really love bacon. Marry the two together and I have sure fire breakfast that pleases everyone. These scones are super light and flaky and are always a big hit.
