- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar (or honey)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 8 tablespoons softened butter (1 stick)
- 3/4 cup milk
4 eggs beaten and scrambled, left a little wet (about 1 cup cooked)
¾ cup crisp, coarsely chopped uncured bacon (an 8-ounce pack or 1¼ cup uncooked)
1 cup cheddar cheese
¼ cup thinly sliced scallions
Preheat oven to 425°F. In large bowl combine all dry ingredients. Cut in butter with a fork or pastry cutter until pea-size or smaller. Make a well in center of mix and knead in milk with fingers. Just before pressing into a dough ball, lightly fold in the filling. Bake at 425°F for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
