I love sweet scones but sometimes you need something savory. These will tick all the boxes.
So, I made these with gryere and scallion but you can use cheddar or add bacon. I served them with just some butter but how about with an omelet? Chili jam is also lovely with these.
Qick and easy
Yhe best part about scones is that the dough doesn't have to rise. Also, don't knead it too much, that'll active the gluten too much.
You can dicide one morning that you fancy xome scones and 30 minutes later you can eat them! Perfect, right?
