Asiago Caramelized Onion Bacon Scones
Sharp Asiago cheese and flavorful caramelized onion bits make for incredible savory flavors in these flaky bacon scones! They bake up in only 30 minutes and are a perfect savory breakfast pastry OR dinner side dish.
Servings 8 scones
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 medium sweet vidalia onion, very thinly sliced
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter, grated using the large holes on a box grater and frozen
- 1/2 cup shredded Asiago cheese
- 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add sliced onions and slowly cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until onions are a deep golden caramelized brown (about 20 minutes of cooking)
Allow caramelized onions to cool slightly then finely chop into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter and work into flour with fingers until pea-sized clumps form. Stir in cooled caramelized onions, Asiago cheese, and bacon.
Drizzle milk, honey, and egg into flour mixture. Fold mixture until a shaggy dough forms. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and very gently knead several times until dough just comes together.
Form dough into a 1-in thick circle and cut into eight wedges. Place wedges 1-in apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake scones at 400F 18-20 minutes or until a deep golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes then serve warm. Enjoy!
