  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. In large bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or fork, until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in milk, egg, cheese, chiles and bacon.
  • 2
    Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. On cookie sheet, roll or pat dough into 8-inch round. Cut into 8 wedges, but do not separate.
  • 3
    Bake 18 to 23 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; carefully separate wedges. Serve warm with honey.

Expert Tips

  • White whole wheat flour can be used in any recipe. It’s the best of both worlds—100% whole grain but with a lighter taste and color. Start substituting 25% or 50% of the all-purpose flour with white whole wheat flour, gradually increasing proportion as desired.
