Having a roast ham for dinner usually means tasty leftovers. There are so many dishes you can make — ham sandwiches, split pea soup, strata… but I love to make Ham, Cheddar and Green Onion Scones. These scones are buttery, savoury, and a well-deserved (once in a while) treat.
To make sure I only have a taste (and not eat all 8!), I’ll make a batch and share them with friends and neighbours. If you have any of these Ham, Cheddar and Green Onion Scones leftover, slice them in half and make a fried egg, lettuce, and tomato sandwich.
Here’s a couple things to remember when making these scones…
- Measure your flour using the “spoon and sweep method”. This will ensure your scones are moist.
- Finely chop the green onion so the flavour spreads evenly throughout the scones.
- Pick a sharp-tasting old cheddar to give these scones big flavour.
- Have all of your ingredients ready before you start the recipe, that way the butter will stay cold and melt in the oven, creating a flaky pastry.
