ZUCCHINI CHEDDAR SCONES

9:40:00 AM
My favored savory scone recipe loaded with sharp cheddar cheese and clean zucchini! Who knew veggies could taste this precise!?

When I don’t recognise what to make for dinner – or don’t experience like cooking dinner at all – I often prefer to make breakfast as a substitute. Pull a few scones from the freezer, fry a couple of eggs, add few slices of avocado and viola – a meal is born! everyone else partial to the almighty breakfast for dinner state of affairs? It’s a BBN favored.

ZUCCHINI CHEDDAR SCONES

Closing week I reached into the freezer to seize a few ham and cheese scones (have you tried them but?) and –  plenty to my hungry/hangry horror – found out they have been ALL gone. Worst moment of my week! ← Kidding. I’m a “make lemonade out of lemons” form of lady, so after a little digging inside the refrigerator and a few creative head scratching, these Zucchini Cheddar Scones had been created.

The results? tacky, flaky, buttery goodness… and the zucchini makes them so moist! are you able to tell I’m a woman in love? After one bite, I think realize you’ll be a fan, too.

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, VERY cold and cut into tiny pieces
  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated, divided

In a small bowl integrate closing tablespoon of flour, grated zucchini, and a half cup of the cheese; toss to coat, then upload to the scone combination; gently fold them into dough with a spatula until blended.
  4. Pour the shaggy dough out onto a smooth, floured paintings floor and shape the dough (you will have to paintings/knead it pretty a bit to get it together) into an 8-inch circle. cut the dough into 8 wedges and carefully transfer them to the prepared sheet. Sprinkle the top of each scone with a bit of the ultimate cheese.
  5. Bake for 22-24 mins, or till cooked through and the tops are golden brown.
