Potato and Bacon Scones

These taste fantastic!  But, I don’t make them as often as I should, probably because I prefer the little bite size ones which take longer to cook.  :)   We eat these as the main breakfast dish, but they would also taste great accompanied with eggs!

Ingredients: makes 2-3 servings; 88 calories per scone.

  • 3-4 medium potatoes (or ~2 large potatoes)
  • 100g of bacon, diced/crumbled (or a couple of slices)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup of flour (~2 tbsp)
  • salt/pepper

Dice and cook the potatoes 15-30min. (depending on their size).  While the potatoes are boiling, start cooking the bacon.  When the bacon is done cooking, lay them down on a plate lined with paper towels, BUT keep the bacon grease for frying the scones later.  When the potatoes are done cooking, drain them and mash them with a fork.  Add the crumbled bacon, egg, and seasonings.  Mix well.  Then add the flour and stir until well mixed.  If the mix does not hold together, then add a little more flour.

Next, drop a spoonful of the mix into the skillet with the bacon grease and press down gently to flatten it.  Cook about 3-4min. on each side to brown, and then lay them on a paper towel to absorb any excess grease.

Makes about 8 scones.
