Savory scones are one of my favorite things to serve for brunch. They're great on their own, hot out of the oven with butter, or taken up a level and stuffed with bacon or breakfast sausage. Using what I feel is the cornerstone of a great brunch—the combination of sweet and savory—these scones take funky, salty blue cheese and combine it with caramelized onions. Although bacon is always a great choice at brunch, these scones are fantastic filled with a few thinly sliced pieces of steak.
