Delicious Ham and Cheese Scones...

My big sis was helping me think of something 
to make for dinner last night. She was scouring
 Pinterest, I was scouring my fridge and cupboards
to find the magical, matching ingredients.
By gosh, we finally got it!

Ham and Cheese Scones from A Beautiful Bite!!!

Ham and Cheese Scones
Recipe type:Brunch
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:

Canadian ham (I used peppered ham), cheddar cheese and onions (no onion for us!) baked into a hearty scone. The perfect sidekick to your favorite salad or soup.
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 Tbsp butter, at room temperature (I used vegan butter)
  • 1 cup plus 1 Tbsp milk (I used Almond milk)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup Canadian ham, diced (I used peppered ham)
  • ½ large onion, diced (left out of recipe)
  1. Preheat oven to 400º.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter with pastry cutter or the tines of a fork.
  3. Add milk and mix just until incorporated. Fold in cheese, ham and onion. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead gently for several minutes. (I kneaded my dough on wax paper as I used every bit of flour I had for the recipe, it worked great!)
  4. Press dough into a 1½” thick circle and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 400º for thirty minutes or until golden brown. (I didn't press into a pan, I just shaped it on the wax paper and flipped it onto the cookie sheet)

I was going to say I followed the directions
to a T. But as you can see with all of the red
up there, that would be a lie. But even making 
the several changes I did. It still came out 
perfect and absolutely delish!

Before oven...

And after oven...
(A little pac man action...)

We added a side of green beans and dinner 
was served! I also just had leftovers for 
lunch with an easy mac cup! Also a perfect 
Try it! It's easy and you will love it!
