Bacon and Three Cheese Scones

One food that I love is cheese. I only usually buy Cheddar and a block of Grana Padano unless it's Christmas as it's all too tempting if it's there in the fridge. As this month the One Ingredient challenge on Franglais Kitchen is cheese I thought it would be only right to treat myself to some nice cheese, and picked up some Dolcelatte. Dolcelatte, which translates as 'sweet milk' is a soft and creamy veined cows milk cheese, is lovely spread onto crusty bread.

I decided to use it, along with my 2 usual cheeses and make some scones. I saved a little crispy bacon from breakfast and added this too, to make a really cheesy savoury scone

Bacon and Three Cheese Scones - makes 10-12

350g SR Flour
1 tsp baking powder
85g Butter
100g mature cheddar cheese, grated
50g dolcelatte, crumbled
50g Grana Padano, grated
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tsp Dijon mustard
110-120ml milk
2 rashers of cooked crispy bacon, cut into small pieces

  • Mix the baking powder into the flour
  • Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs and stir in the cayenne & mustard
  • Stir in half of the cheddar along with all of the dolcelatte, grana padano & the bacon pieces
  • Stir in the milk gradually until you've added enough to bring the mixture together (you may not need all of the milk)
  • Roll out onto a floured surface to approx 1 1/2 - 2cm thick
  • Using a round cutter cut out scones and lay onto a greased baking tray, re rolling and cutting any remaining dough
  • Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle with the reserved cheddar
  • Bake in 1 preheated 180C oven for 12-14 minutes until crispy & golden

The One Ingredient Challenge is hosted alternately by Nazima at Franglais Kitchen and Laura from How to Cook Good Food, and they have a different ingredient for each month.


  1. Oh boy they sound divine, I am very partial to a cheese scone and the added bacon sounds the perfect enhancement.

    I love cheese too and I love your choice of cheeses in these scones which would work so well with the bacon too. They would make a lovely breakfast, lunch or tea and my kids love them too! Thanks for linking up to One Ingredient x

  5. oooh Helen i bet these are yummy, especially when warm x

  6. You've just reminded me that I've hidden these away in a tin & want one now even though its a fast day!! X

  7. I absolutely adore savoury scones and these sound amazing. Definitely bookmarking this recipe to try.

  8. I love savoury scones and I love the use of 3 different cheeses here. It must have been lovely. I wish I made scones more often but they always seem such an indulgence, but you have reminded me - it has been too long and I need to get baking!
