These Eggless Savory Scones are perfect for any gathering, whether it’s a brunch with friends or a picnic in the park. The scones are made with a buttery, crispy crust and a soft, flavorful crumb, thanks to the addition of mature cheddar cheese, onion, and ham. The combination of these savory ingredients creates a taste that’s simply irresistible. The best part is that the recipe is quick and easy to prepare, so you can have these scones ready to serve in just a few minutes.
One of the great things about these savory scones is that you can customize the filling to your liking. If you’re a bacon lover, try swapping out the ham for crispy bacon. Or, add olives, dried tomatoes, chives, or different types of herbs for even more flavor. The possibilities are endless, and you can make each batch of scones unique and exciting.
How to make eggless savory scones
To start, in a medium-large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and garlic powder. Cut butter cubes into the mixture using a pastry cutter or fork until the pieces are no bigger than peas.
Next, add grated cheese, ham, and green onion to the mixture and combine them with the flour. Then, incorporate cold buttermilk until the ingredients are just combined. Avoid overmixing.
Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and shape it into a circle of about 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter. Cut the dough into eight triangles and transfer the scones onto the baking sheet. Brush the top of each scone with olive oil before placing it in the oven.
Bake the scones at 400 F (200C) for approximately 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Once done, transfer the scones onto a cooling rack.
These scones are best served warm, straight out of the oven, to fully appreciate their texture and flavor.
