Bacon Blueberry Scones
We love scones here on Turnips 2 Tangerines and Bacon Blueberry Scones are among our favorites. The bacon and blueberry flavors blend great together. The salty, smokey flavor from the bacon lends delicious flavor to these scones. Bacon and blueberry are very compatible together and therefore putting these scones one step above the rest. I like to drizzle these warm scones with honey or serve them a yummy blueberry vanilla goat cheese.
If your looking for more blueberry recipes, we have several you might want to try. White Chocolate Blueberry Fudge is made with dried blueberries. Dried blueberries are packed with super intense, blueberry flavor. We like to use dried blueberries in the winter months when fresh blueberries aren’t available. Fresh Blueberry Lemon Scones is one of our top recipes here on Turnips 2 Tangerines, give it a try!
