  1. Cook the bacon until golden, let it cool and chop into chunks.
  2. Combine the flour and butter in a mixing bowl by rubbing together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and grease a 12-hole muffin tin.
  4. Mix the egg with ¾ of the milk and the mustard and seasoning.
  5. Then pour a little at a time of the liquid mix into the dry mix and gently blend until the mixture comes together and forms a dough.
  6. Add the bacon bits and most of the cheese.
  7. Spoon the batter into the muffin tin holes, finish with a little grated cheese to the top of each muffin.
  8. Put in the oven and bake for 15-20 mins until the scones have risen and are golden brown. Serve warm, buttered for added indulgence!
