The Ingredients:

1 1/4 c. Almond flour/meal pressed (packed into the cup)

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded (I like sharp)

6 slices Bacon, sliced into 1/4-1/2″ pieces and fried crisp

1/4 c. Bacon Grease (I usually get the right amount from the bacon needed)

1 Egg, well beaten

What to Do:

Combine all ingredients and shape into whatever shape you like, I spooned the batter (very firm batter) into a silicone mold and pressed it down to make uniform “muffin” shaped scones.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until firm.
