"I really liked this recipe! I did, however, think the onion was too strong-and I used less than it called for. Next time I'd either use a little green onion or just eliminate it. Still a keeper recipe though!"

"I make this recipe on a regular basis as my husbund loves them!! I do stir all the bacon in and usually add a little extra cheese. I also use onion powder cause we aren't big onion eaters. Definitely my hubby's favorite recipe!"

"I made this for a ladies' brunch and it was excellent! I used bacon bits and mixed them all into the batter, based on another reviewer's comments. So yummy!"

"These are very buttery and good. I used turkey bacon and they still tasted very savory. The bacon that you sprinkle on the top before baking doesn't really stay on so next time I might press it in or just mix all the bacon in rather than dividing it. Really a great recipe!"

"I made these for a fall morning family breakfast. My family is not big on onions so I omitted them. I did use low fat ingredients for a more healthy scone, didn't change the taste. They were deliciously healthy! Thanks for a fun and different recipe."

"This was very simple to make, as well as quick. My only change would be to grate the onion, as I wasn't fond of the bigger chunks."

"These have a wonderful onion-y buttery flavor. I might recommend a little bit more bacon for those bacon-lovers out there, but this is a wonderful recipe and definitely a keeper."

"These are great! Very rich and buttery. I modified the recipe by cooking the onion with the bacon. These are very good."
