Scone Recipe Includes Bacon & Blue Cheese

Scone recipe includes sparkling wine

Make New Year’s Day extra special for 2019. As a special treat for New Year’s Day, create this enticing recipe for scones which includes bacon and blue cheese. The recipe is from J Vineyards & Winery in Healdsburg, California and also calls for sparkling wine and Pinot Noir. Typically scones are served with afternoon tea; however, I think that the addition of bacon would make it a great item for breakfast!
