Ham and Cheese Scones

Delicious Food And Healthy Food Recipes
There’s nothing like pulling a warm tray of ham and cheese scones out of the oven! The best part? They’re SO easy!


I made these savory scones for you earlier in the week and it was love at first bite. Gooey cheese, plenty of black forest ham, and fresh scallions all baked up in a flaky, buttery scone… I mean, does it get any better?!

Ham and Cheese Scones Recipe
Flaky, buttery, super delicious ham and cheese scones! Perfect for breakfast, brunch, snack time, or dinner.



Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, VERY cold and cut into tiny pieces
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature, beaten
  • 1/2 cup plain full-fat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons whole Milk
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 ounces ham, diced
  • 1/3 cup scallions, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°(F). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl add the flour, salt, pepper, baking powder, baking soda, and brown sugar; mix well to combine. Cut the butter into small cubes then quickly work it into the mixture (using your fingers) until it resembles a coarse meal. Set aside. In a small bowl whisk together the egg, yogurt, and milk, beating well to combine. Add the liquid mixture to dry and use a fork to stir everything together until just moistened.
  3. Add in the cheese, ham, and scallions and gently fold them into dough with a spatula.
  4. Pour the shaggy dough out onto a clean, floured work surface and shape the dough into an 8-inch circle. Cut the dough into 8 wedges and carefully transfer to the prepared sheet.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden brown.
  6. Cool for 5 minutes on the tray, then serve warm.

Notes
*Add a little extra ham, cheese, and scallions on top of each scone before baking if you'd like yours to look like mine do in the photos. *These scones are best eaten the day they are baked. *You can flash freeze the baked scones for up to 2 months.
