Line a baking pan with parchment paper
Make glaze by combining beaten egg with 1 tbsp milk. Set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper
Cut butter into flour mixture using a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the grated cheese, chopped cooked bacon and chives to the dry ingredients.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add the milk, and stir gently with a wooden spoon, until mixture just forms a ball
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
Roll or pat dough 1 inch thick and using a floured 2 1/2 inch cutter, cut out rounds.
Place on the prepared baking pan and brush with glaze.
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of grated cheddar cheese on the top of each scone (if desired).
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on top and cheese has melted
