Broccoli Cheddar Scones

You guys have all had Panera’s broccoli cheddar soup, right? I am a leeeeetle bit obsessed with it. I could eat it just about every day. Never mind the fact it is not the healthiest choice. If calories and fat didn’t matter I’d be eating broccoli cheddar soup, pizza, and cupcakes every meal. There are a million copycat recipes out there but I have not tried any yet. The last thing I need is to start making it at home too.

So, instead of broccoli cheddar soup I decided to make broccoli cheddar scones. I originally made these bacon cheddar scones a few years ago. I’ve since made them a million times for work and to give friends. I’m not big on bacon so I never eat them myself. Since I love broccoli (and cheddar) I decided to sub broccoli for bacon. Yep, bacon for a vegetable. And I’d do it again in a heartbeat. These scones are soft, fluffy, buttery, and full of flavor. If you like bacon you could even do broccoli, cheddar, and bacon!
