Low-Carb Bacon Cheddar Jalapeño Scones

Low-Carb Bacon Cheddar Jalapeño Scones


Savory Breakfast Scone

When I first became interested in food and being in the kitchen, I baked Ryan and myself up some delicious savory Cheddar Jalapeño scones that were an instant hit. I re-made the recipe multiple times and even shared the final result with some family members who were equally as impressed by the flavors, especially all of those flavors being in scone-form (we loveeee baked goods in our family)!

I was determined to come up with a similar recipe that was not only gluten-free (the old recipe was made with whole wheat flour), but also low-carb! The result: these delicious goodies!

I have baked these Low-Carb Bacon Cheddar Jalapeño Scones multiple times now and shared them with many people (most having no idea that they are grain-free or low-carb) and the feedback has been spectacular! I mean, I can't exactly say I'm surprised by people liking them since, well hellllllo, BACON and CHEDDAR and JALAPEÑOS?! Basically all of the best ingredients jam-packed into a baked good. Can't really go wrong with that! YUUUM!

1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 medium jalapeno, thinly diced (de-seed for less spice)

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and heavy whipping cream. Mix in mozzarella and cheddar.
