Sausage and Cheddar Cheese Scones

Sausage and cheddar cheese scones

While breakfast during the weeks is kept fairly simple, I do like to spend a bit more time in the kitchen on the weekends. Take these scones for instance, these are perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch. They’re flavorful and in lieu of a typical sweet scone, this one is savory.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 6 tbsps. butter, cold
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 – 1 lb. browned and fine crumbled sausage
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onions, sliced thin

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients of flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and Greek yogurt and incorporate into the flour mixture along with the cooked sausage, cheddar cheese, and green onions, mixing until it just comes together.

On a lightly floured surface, form the dough into a circle or rectangle, and using a pizza cutter that’s been rolled in a bit of flour, cut scones into triangles. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-22 minutes or until lightly browned.
