Manly Scones

Every man needs to know how to feed himself.  Learning to bake is practical but I get hassled about it sometimes.  Of course, my stuff gets eaten.  This is a guy's variation on Scones-basically a seasoned biscuit.   These are a great alternative to the donut shop or the diner and  are portable, easy to make and  taste good.  

3 Cups of Bisquick or other biscuit mix
1/4 cup (1/2 of a stick) or butter or margarine
1/4 cup of sugar
1 cup diced deli ham or crispy bacon
1 cup cheddar shreds-fat free does not work
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
butter and Tony Chachere's

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Mix the eggs and milk together.  Mix the biscuit mix, sugar and cut in the butter until it is like coarse meal.  Mix in the meat and cheese. 

 Pour the liquid in at once and mix it by hand ONLY until it is all moist-don't over mix or they will become bricks

Scrape it out onto a well floured surface and pat it into a circle about 3/4 inch thick.  Flour the top well and cut it into 8 pieces.  It will be lightly sticky.  lift the wedges with a spatula and put it onto parchment on a cookie sheet about 1/2 inch apart. you have to shape the up a little-I use a pie server to scrape and shape.

Bake until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.  Butter the tops while hot and sprinkle with Tony's to your taste

From start to clean up is about 30 minutes and you can put them in a zip bag after they cool.
