   Here is a scone recipe that sounds interesting:
 
   Preheat oven to 425°F.  Heat a frying pan, then dry fry the
   pancetta or bacon for 5-6 minutes until crispy.  Remove with a
   slotted spoon and allow to cool on kitchen paper.
 
   Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.
    rub in the butter until it resembles bread crumbs.  Add the
   potato, Parmesan, oregano and pancetta or bacon pieces, and mix
   well.
 
   Stir in enough milk to form a soft but firm dough, then turn out
   on to a lightly flour work surface and knead briefly. Roll out
   the dough to a 3/4 inch thickness and stamp out rounds with  a
   2-1/2 inch fluted cutter, re-rolling and cutting to make 10 scones.
 
   Put the scones on a well greased baking sheet.  Brush the tops
   with egg and bake for 15 minutes until well risen and golden
   brown.   Cool a little on a wire rack, then serve warm with butter.
