Steps to make Ham and Cheese Scones


Preheat oven and prepare baking sheet


Preheat the oven to 400 °F and line a large baking sheet with baking parchment paper.


Combine dry batter ingredients


In a large bowl whisk 2½ cups of flour, ½ teaspoon of salt, ¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, ½ teaspoon of baking soda, and ⅓ cup of brown sugar until well combined.


Add butter


Crumble 1 stick of very cold unsalted butter by cutting into small cubes and using your fingers to crumble into a coarse meal.


Combine wet ingredients


In a small bowl whisk 1 large egg, ½ cup of plain yogurt, and 2 tablespoons of whole milk until well beaten and combined.


Prepare batter


Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and use a fork to mix everything until just combined.


Add filling


Gently fold in 4 ounces of shredded Cheddar cheese, 4 ounces of diced ham and ⅓ cup of chopped scallions until evenly combined into the dough.


Cut wedges


Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface into an 8-inch round shape. Cut into 8 wedges and transfer to the lined baking sheet.

I absolutely love savory scones and these would be so perfect for an Easter brunch table!

Emilee Didio

I attempted to make these and they turned out to be a little bit on the hard side after I've baked them, nonetheless they still had an amazing taste despite the hard crunchiness.

Karis Reager

I usually am too lazy to make anything but cereal in the morning, but for the first time I actually cooked something up and it just happened to be the best decision I've made in a long time!, these turned out DELICIOUS!

Marjorie Trenkle

These scones are amazing. This was my first time making savory scones and I wasn’t sure what I would think of them but these are delicious!

Anneliese Feigelson

Made these this morning for breakfast. So delicious and so easy – my husband had already eaten half of them by the time I set them down on the table!

Azalea Labhart

Really enjoyed these cheesy scones. They came together super fast! Great way to use up ham leftovers.

Alisa Palzer

Easy to make and simple, but I had to add more salt to the filling as the taste was a little bland, still worth a 5 from me.

Kinlee Lops

Couldn't ask for a better breakfast than this! Turned out wonderfully, really adored these ham scones!

Nalani Lleshi

Cooked this up and packed the leftovers for lunch, still tasted good even when it was no longer fresh, really good recipe.

Ali Bunfill

Not a big fan of crunchy meals but this was good with some tea.


Well done! I love these scones!
