Apple Bacon Cheddar Scone Recipe
For the most part, I am pretty much “take-it-or-leave-it” about the majority of typically girly books and movies. I am not really a romance type of person – I don’t mind it very now and then, but I don’t generally seek it out in my books – with two exceptions – “You’ve Got Mail” and “Pride and Prejudice”.
Recipe Inspired by Pride and Prejudice and Zombie Book and Movie
I love everything about Pride and Prejudice – the gorgeous flowery prose (seriously, why don’t people talk like this anymore?!), the regency period, the gorgeous dresses and fancy balls. It’s totally not typical of me at all, but when it comes to P&P, I’m a die hard fan. I also love fun adaptations and retellings of the story – for instance THIS BOOK is a really fun read! I am also a serious fan of the 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie with Kierra Knightley.
Pride and Prejudice Apple Bacon Cheddar Scones
I read the book “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” and I liked it, but I didn’t love it. But guys – the movie!! It is sooo much better!! This might be the one and only time that I say the movie was better than the book. Yeah, I said it. They do a fantastic job of keeping true to the language, style and heart of the original story, except that the Bennet sisters are bad-ass zombie killers. This movie was SO FUN and ridiculously silly – Mr. Darcy’s fighting leathers squeak every time he walks, instead of doing embroidery together the sisters practice their fighting skills. But what really sold it for me was the character of Mr. Collins. Normally this character is a swarthy, overly needy and vain man but in this adaptation he is played by none other than Matt Smith – and suddenly Mr. Collins becomes slightly more endearing and hilariously nerdy goof.
Pride and Prejudice Apple Bacon Cheddar Scone Recipe inspired by Jane Austen
These apple, bacon and cheddar scones are inspired by Pride and Prejudice – scones being an essential element of any good tea. The tender flaky scones combine apples, sharp cheddar and applewood smoked bacon (a nod to P&PZ – no spoilers here, but pigs play an important role in the movie!) with a hint of fresh rosemary for a lovely and savory addition to a tea table. You can serve this with a slice of real butter, or even a smear of jam.
Apple Bacon Cheddar and Rosemary Scone or Biscuit Recipe
Whether you are a fan of Jane Austen, ridiculous movies, or zombies, or none of the above, these scones are completely delightful and the perfect addition any tea, breakfast, or afternoon snack. And they would be great served along side any stew or chili as well.

  • A rimmed baking sheet is totally necessary for baking bacon in the oven – it will trap the grease in so it won’t spill all over your oven.
  • A Silpat Mat makes baking biscuits, scones, and cookies so easy because they won’t stick to the pan! I highly recommend having one (or two)!
  • Lining your counter with parchment paper before you knead your dough saves so much time and effort meaning dough off your counters – and helps you reduce the amount of flour you use,  which helps your biscuits stay flakey and soft!

    Pride and Prejudice is my favorite! However, I feel exactly the opposite way about the book & movie for PPZ – loved the book and hated the movie. 😉 I'm a bit of a scone fanatic, too…love the apple, cheddar bacon combo.
