Bacon and cheese scones in the Thermomix

Here in the UK, when you attend a Thermomix demo, you get to make and taste delicious cheese scones, which we then enjoy with a pea and mint soup.

Since adding Momo the Thermomix to our family about a year ago, I have made the classic cheese scone recipe so many times I’ve lost count – tonight we added bacon to it and very nice it was too. So I thought I’d share…


Bacon & cheese scones in the Thermomix

Makes 8

Active time: 5 minutes – Total time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 200g lardons or bacon rashes diced
  • 450g self-raising flour
  • 120g butter diced into 1cm
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 120g cheddar cheese
  • 250g milk

Let’s go…

  1. Preheat your oven to 220C
  2. Add lardons to the Thermomix bowl. Turn on for 4 minutes / 100C / slow speed / reverse speed. When cooked drain in a colander and set aside.
  3. Add flour, butter and salt to the mixing bowl. Mix on Turbo / 1 second / 5 or 6 times. 
  4. Add cheese and chop again Turbo / 1 second / 3 times.
  5. Add milk. Mix for 5 seconds / speed 4.
  6. Add lardons. Knead for 30 seconds.
  7. Tip out onto a floured mat and gently bring the dough together.  Press out with hands to about 3cm thickness.
  8. Using the spatula, cut into 8 scones and place onto an oiled & floured tray.
  9. Cook in the oven for 18 minutes at 220C.

Best enjoyed warm with a bowl of soup or just as they are.

Delicious. Bon appetit x
