Cheese and Herb Scones & Breakfast Sandwiches. A great standard recipe for savoury scones that are delicious to serve with hearty soups… and they make the start of delicious breakfast sandwiches too.
Don’t these savoury scones look so appealing? We find them to be very versatile indeed.
We serve them with soups and stews especially, where the delicious herb flavours will compliment either of those hearty choices.
We had these scones yesterday for lunch with a seafood chowder and on this snowy morning the leftovers reappeared as these tasty breakfast sandwiches. Eat your heart out Egg McMuffin!
