Actually, the "American" Canadian bacon is fully cooked, and tastes like ham.. Canadian "Back Bacon", or "Pea Meal" Bacon is not; and it doesn't taste like ham. I remember the first time I found "Canadian Bacon" in the grocery store when I first moved to the US from Canada.. and how *disappointed* I was to discover the taste was not at all the same!

Canadian Bacon is just back bacon, and even being from Canada I never knew that's what people called it until recently...
As is often the case with foreign recipes some explanation of ingredients would help. According to Wikipedia:
Canadian bacon, a US name for two different pork products - back bacon and a smoked ham (Also a comedy film and mountain in Washington)
Which of the two products was used in this recipe?
btw It's unfortunate that a rating is required to post a query.
These "savoury scones" are very popular in New Zealand and are part of the staple down there. We eat them with butter and they are plain, that's the way they are supposed to be. North American's are so used to sweet and over the top spice that I can understand how these would rate as needing some oomph!
I thought these were a little bland. I want to try them again but next time I will sub stone ground cornmeal for 1/2 the whole wheat and use canned green chiles (medium not mild) in place of the red pepper. I also think you need to use extra sharp cheddar to get any taste of cheese in them. I think it's worth playing with these because they make such a great quick breakfast, especially paired with the mini quiches also in this issue.
