Cheese/Bacon Scones and they're vegan!
Sunday, November 24, 2013
At my last job I used to cook and I loved to make all types of scones, sweet and savory. People are always impressed by them. Must be that teatime panache they have? I've seen recipes for vegan scones and have tried a few, but it's not one of those things I make very often. Hey, I'd just eat them, right?
Then I saw this recipe for "Cheddar-Bacon" scones and the author was so seductive with her description that I had to try them, and oh, baby!
Here's the book:
Sarah Matheny has written 2 totally charming vegan cookbooks. She sounds like the kind of person you'd want to spend time with. She writes in a conversational style about her adventures as a wife/mom with 2 little girls. She created these after waxing nostalgic for McDonald's bacon and cheese biscuits, so it's not the most elegant origin story but there you are!
Behold! They're made with spelt flour, Daiya cheddar and tempeh bacon.
I served these gems with a vegetable-tofu scrmable. Classic Breakfast.
And the scones were great with soup too.
I'll be making these again!
