Savoury scones – three ways

Preparation time:
15 mins
Cooking time:
20 mins

You can play about with the flavours in these muffins – some of our favourite combos are listed below but you could also add herbs, spices, different vegetables, cooked meats and cheese. The cheese would be added as a dry ingredient (unless you used a wet cheese like mozzarella). If you’re using bacon, grill for a few minutes until it’s as you like it, cut it into pieces and add to the wet ingredients. Chorizo can be prepared in the same way as the bacon. The leeks can be sliced and softened in a little butter in a frying pan until they’re gently browned.

We love cheese and onion, feta and olive, ham and cheddar and sundried tomato and mozzarella… You can also eat like a scone with butter or cream cheese. The possibilities are endless!

Step 2

In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients until well blended

Step 3

Fold the dry into the wet until combined, then spoon the mixture equally into muffin cases

Step 4

Pop the muffins into the middle shelf of the oven for about 20 minutes or until the tops are a golden brown. Best served warm
