Savory Scones with Bacon Cheddar and Chive

Hi from New York City! We’re here for the long weekend, and our agenda essentially includes eating and then finding activities to pass the time before our next meal. Today’s recipe for Savory Scones with Bacon, Cheddar, and Chive is inspired by the savory scones I tried at a bakery here on our last visit. They’re fluffy on the inside, golden and lightly crisp at the edges, and if the words “bacon” and “cheddar” don’t cause you to hold your breath for a moment, then…well, I’m actually not sure I believe you.

This trip marks my seventh time in the Big Apple, and my fourth together with Ben. I never ever tire of visiting this city. I’m bewitched by its energy, wealth of activities, and smorgasbord of dining options that range from fancy $X,XXX per plate dinners, to five-star food trucks, to local bakeries that serve everything from delicate French pastries to savory scones. We stay in the same location each trip, which means that by now, the neighborhood feels a little bit like coming home.

Coming home, minus pesky chores like laundry and grocery shopping, plus vacation liberties like eating bacon cheese scones every single morning if you feel like it.
