Want to hear a joke? (Or read a joke, technically.)
What happens to a scone when you have eaten it?
I know, it’s pretty bad. I just typed scone jokes into the search bar, which proves that you can find anything, and I mean anything, on the internet. Because who wants to hear jokes about scones?
Well, except you and me, because we are unique individuals who love food. And maybe puns. But mostly food.
So what’s up with the scone joke anyway, you say? I have have a breakfast scone recipe for you today, but there’s really nothing funny about it. Because it’s serious eats. Except maybe it’s funny how totally tasty it is.
Savory Breakfast Scones
1 cup unbleached flour
1 cup Almond Flour (if you can’t find almond flour in your town, check the link below the recipe.)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons pure olive oil
1/2 cup water
1 egg white
1/2 lb turkey sausage (Vegetarian? Substitute cheese or leave out the sausage. You may need to reduce the cooking time, so keep an eye on these guys while they are in the oven!)
3 scallion, chopped
6 servings, 290 calories, 18.9g fat, 18.4g carbohydrates, 12.2g protein
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Brown and break up the turkey sausage and set aside.
3. Mix dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. The guys are little crumbly, so if you want a tighter scone, add 2 cups of unbleached flour and skip the almond flour. The almond flour keeps the scones moist and give this recipe more protein.
4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until a dough forms.
5. Add the sausage and the scallions and fold in until well-incorporated. Be careful not to over mix.
6. Spray a round baking dish with non-stick spray and add the dough.
7. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown.
8. After the scones cool, cut six servings and enjoy warm or keep in the fridge (because of the sausage) until ready to eat. (As you may note, the pictures show the scones cut into 8 pieces, but the serving size is 6.)
