McCafé Coffee In The Grocery Store & Bacon Maple Scones

Disclosure: I received product and/or payment for this post.  All opinions, as always, are 100% my own!McCafe Coffee and Maple Bacon SconesHave you seen the McCafé Coffee at the grocery store yet? I’ve been dying to try the McCafé Coffee Pods since I spotted them at my local Walmart. This last trip I decided to pick up a box of the McCafé Coffee Pods French Roast and I’m happy I did. No weak or dirt tasting coffee for me this morning! The McCafé Coffee Pods spit out a perfect cup of joe – bold, even, rich and no after taste.

I never start my morning without a cup of joe, but I’m somewhat of a coffee snob. Quality coffee beans are important to me so I was happy to see McCafé Coffee is made with 100% Arabica Beans.

McCafé Coffee In The Grocery StoreIn addition to the French Roast I tried, they have a variety of options to choose from:

  • Ground – 12 oz bags: Premium Roast, Breakfast Blend, French Roast, Columbian, Premium Roast Decaf, and French Vanilla, Hazelnut
  • Whole Bean – 12 oz bag: Bean French Roast
  • Pods – 18 pack: Premium Roast, French Roast, and Premium Roast Decaf

Author:
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 Package Farmer John Breakfast Sausage Links
  • 2 Cups All-purpose Flour
  • ¾ Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar (packed)
  • 5 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter (Frozen)
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • ⅔ Cup Milk or Heavy Cream
  • 1 Teaspoon Maple Flavor Extract
  • 1 Teaspoon Maple Syrup
Instructions
  1. Cook the sausage as directed on the back of the package. Chop into bite size pieces and set aside.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon baking sheet.
  3. Scoop the flour into a 1 cup dry ingredients measuring cup, level off with a knife and add to the blender. Repeat until you have 2 cups of flour in the blender.
  4. Add the salt, baking powder and sugar to the blender and pulse 5-6 times to combine.
  5. Cut the frozen butter into ¼” pats and add to the blender. Pulse until the butter is in pea-size clumps and the mixture looks coarse. Do NOT over mix as this will create a rock-like stone.
  6. Add 1 egg, milk, maple extract and pulse 4-5 times until the mixture forms large clumps. The dough will be slightly sticky. Again - DON’T over mix!
  7. Fold the sausage into the mix.
  8. Turn the dough out onto a lightly flour dusted surface. Knead a few times until it’s in one big ball.
  9. Press down on the dough to form a circle about 8” across and ½” high.
  10. Cut the dough into 8 equal squares and transfer to the baking sheet.
  11. Brush the top with a beaten egg and bake for 12-14 minutes (until golden brown).
  12. Optional - top with additional maple syrup before serving. Best served immediately.
