Savory Breakfast Scones Recipe


Welcome to the world of savory breakfast scones! Get ready to indulge in a delicious and easy-to-make recipe that will kickstart your day with a burst of flavor.


First, preheat your oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will ensure that your scones come out perfectly golden and crispy.


In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Mix well.


Next, add in 1/2 cup of cold butter, cut into small cubes. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.


Now, it's time to add in the star ingredient - 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Mix it into the flour and butter mixture until evenly distributed.


In a separate bowl, beat 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of milk together. Slowly pour this mixture into the flour mixture, stirring until a dough forms.


Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and knead it gently a few times. Then, shape it into a circle about 1 inch thick.


Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 equal wedges. Place them on the prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with a beaten egg for a shiny finish.


Bake the scones for 20-25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Let them cool for a few minutes before serving.


And there you have it - a delicious and savory breakfast scone recipe that will impress your taste buds and your family. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea for the perfect start to your day!
