Bacon, who doesn’t love bacon? My son loves bacon so much someone bought him bacon flavored mints once. Okay, that might be going a bit too far, but add it to these Savory Gluten-free Bacon Gouda Scones and you have a recipe for perfection. This simple gluten-free recipe can be baked up in no time and the results are so delicious. Perfect with scrambled eggs in the morning or with a nice hearty soup for lunch or dinner.
Gluten-free Yummy has finally entered the techy world! I have my very own APP now. If you have a smart phone, or a tablet, you can download it for free using this link: GlutenFreeYummyAPP.

The marvelous team at Woväx created this app. Check them out if you have need for a website or your very own app. I highly recommend them!
I also attempted to create my first video this week. I can tell you this, it was not easy creating a video with my phone, holding it with one hand and attempting to cut, chop, and stir with the other! It was a bit like patting my head, rubbing my tummy while balancing on a large rubber ball. You think I’m joking? I think I dropped my phone into the dough three or four times! I called my husband to tell him I created my first video and how difficult it was. He said, ‘Why didn’t you use our selfie stick?’ Hand slap to my forehead!!! Why didn’t I think of that? We picked up a selfie stick while in Europe; a long telescoping pole that holds the iPhone on the end. It even has Bluetooth capabilities, so all you have to do is push a button at the end of the mono-pod stick and it takes your picture. But even though I may have produced a few gray hairs on my head, I did have fun attempting my first food video. I would love some feedback from you. Please let me know if you would you like to see more how-to videos in the future by leaving a comment below.
Savory Gluten-free Bacon Gouda Scones Instructions:
Savory Gluten-free Bacon Gouda Scones
|Prep time||15 minutes|
|Cook time||17 minutes|
|Total time||32 minutes|
|Meal type||Bread, Breakfast|
- 2 cups gluten-free baking flour blend (Both Pamela's or Bob's 1 to 1 GF baking flour works well)
- 6 tablespoons butter (cold & cubed)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder (aluminum-free)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or vinegar)
- 1 Large egg (cage-free)
- 1 tablespoon fresh chives (chopped)
- 3 pieces bacon (sliced)
- 1 cup Gouda cheese (cubed)
- 1 Large egg white (for basting)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt (sprinkled over tops of scones)
|Slice three strips of bacon into small pieces (1/2 inch) place in a small frying pan and fry until crisp. Remove from heat and place on a paper towel to absorb grease. Set aside.|
|Chop Gouda cheese into 1/4 inch cubes and set aside.|
|Take 1/2 cup milk and add lemon juice or vinegar to curdle milk. Set aside.|
|In a medium bowl add gluten-free flour blend and baking powder. Stir until blended.|
|Cut butter into 1/2 inch cubes. Place cubed butter into the flour blend and cut in with a pastry cutter. Flour should resemble small pea-sized bits.|
|Mix curdled milk and large egg together. Place in flour mix and gently fold a few times with a wooden spoon.|
|Add chopped chives, bacon and Gouda cheese and mix a few times with wooden spoon, then mix with hand until dough ball forms.|
|Mound dough into a half dome on a flat surface. Using a large bladed knife, cut into 8 equal triangular slices, similar to slicing a pie. Space evenly on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Baste tops of scones with egg wash from egg whites and sprinkle with sea salt.|
|Bake for 17 minutes in a 425 degree oven. Remove from oven when tops of scones are golden brown. Serve warm.|

Wow! These look delicious and what a unique combo! I will definitely have to try these!
You pretty much can’t go wrong with bacon & Gouda cheese.
Oh, my yum!! These are so decadent looking! And probably delicious too, right? Obviously.
Yes, Very delicious!
I love scones, especially savory ones and these looks absolutely delicious. Gouda is a great cheese, I would stay away from the smoky variety with bacon, but otherwise a great combo!
I agree with you, Andi. I think smoked Gouda would overpower the overall taste but bacon & regular Gouda were a nice combo in these scones.
Great first attempt at a video, and the scones sound fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing them on Waste Not Want Not Wednesday, I’ve pinned this 🙂
Thank you, Danielle. I had to laugh at myself. I’m not getting an Oscar anytime soon!
