Bacon, Cheddar and Green Onion Scones

Bacon, Cheddar and Green Onion Scones recipe pictures

When I first saw these scones on Annie’s-Eats, I knew I needed to make them for Cliff. They had all his favorites: bacon, cheese, and green onions. And I knew they would make great quick and easy weekday breakfasts for him. There was no doubt in my mind that he would love them. What’s not to love? I made them almost immediately after seeing this recipe. To my great surprise, he HATED them!  He was not just indifferent about them, he really did not like them. Honestly, I was mad that I had just wasted so much time and ingredients on something he would not eat. I don’t even know what it was about them that he did not like.  But he would not be taking them for breakfast!

Luckily, we were going to our twice-monthly supper club the next day, so I figured I would pawn them off on some of my friends. Fortunately for my self-esteem, my friends had the reaction that I had expected from Cliff.  They loved them!  Obviously Cliff was the crazy one for not enjoying these delightful little bacon, cheddar and green onion scones. I heard later that some of my friends were hoarding the scones from their spouses, even sneaking into the kitchen the next day to eat the last one. I have made them a few times since and I always share them with the same friends who tell me how wonderful my scone making skills are. At least someone appreciates all the baking I do!
