Bacon Blueberry Scones Recipe

Bacon Blueberry Scones Recipe

“Blueberry scones offer a nice alternative to muffins in the morning,” writes Patricia Harmon from Baden, Pennsylvania. “And the bacon adds a savory twist to this recipe, making the scones a nice addition to a brunch…or any time at all with a cup of coffee.” TIP: Sprinkle the tops of scones with sugar for a sweeter taste and a little sparkle!
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk buttermilk and oil; add to crumb mixture stirring just until moistened. Stir in blueberries and bacon.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times. Pat into an 8-in. circle. Cut into eight wedges. Separate wedges and place on a greased baking sheet.
  • 3. In a small bowl, beat egg and milk; brush over scones. Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled scones in resealable plastic freezer bags. To use, heat in a preheated 350° oven 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"I have made these twice now and both times they turned out great! I added a little shredded cheddar to mine. I love the salty taste of the bacon with the sweet blueberries. It gives these a very decadent flavor."

"I just made these and they are fantastic - gotta love the bacon! I did some minor extra steps which was to dredge the blueberries and bacon in a light dusting of flour just before adding them to the dough (definitely keep the blueberries in the freezer until you're ready to use them); plus I only kneaded the dough about 4 times to just gather it into a ball and very lightly flattened it with my rolling pin so the wedges would be tall like in the photo. I also used raw sugar crystals for the topping for added crunch. One other tip, I always wash my hands in cold water before I handle dough that depends on being flakey, in case my hands are too warm from activity - anything to keep those flakes! ;)"
