Cheese & Bacon Scones

Not just your ordinary scone…this is the famous Rolleston Westland Milk Product’s Friday morning tea recipe that has been on the menu for the last four years. A strip of bacon on top and Westgold butter spread in the middle and you can’t go past this super savoury delight.

Tips with Butter

Try clarified butter for cooking, for a higher smoke point. Put a butter block in a glad bag and leave in a pot of hot water until melted. Chill in the fridge until solid, and then wash off the white milk solids.


3 cups flour 
5 tsp baking powder  
80g Westgold butter – chopped/grated 
1.5 cups milk 
1 cup grated cheese  
1 cup finely chopped ham/bacon 


Preheat oven to 220°c.

Mix dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl, then cut in grated butter until it has the consistency of bread crumbs. Once completed, stir in the cheese and bacon.
Add milk and mix into dough. Knead dough and spread on baking tray.

Cut dough into equal sized pieces and space on tray.
Bake for 10 minutes until golden.
