Stop Everything And Make These Spring Onion And Cheddar Scones Right Now

Bacon butter.

No, just, stop for a moment and imagine one of of these Onion and Cheddar Scones, fresh from the oven and spread with Bacon Butter. I'm pretty sure flavor like this is illegal in several states and should be kept away from small children lest you ruin them for the taste of other foods.




3 cups all purpose flour (plus a little more for your work surface)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
1 cup sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup COLD unsalted butter
1/2 - 3/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced (most of the way down the stalk but stopping about 2" from the bottom)
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water (egg wash)
4 slices bacon, cooked and finely crumbled
3 tablespoons soft unsalted butter
kosher salt to taste
