Prosciutto Cheddar Chive Scones
Easy like Sunday morning
Let’s talk about Sunday morning…one of my favorite days of the week! Even though it’s the end of the weekend there is something comforting about Sunday morning, a certain sense of calm in the air and a final day to enjoy the family and whatever activities we have planned. It’s also one of the only days of the week I make a big breakfast. Most Sundays you’ll find us dining on waffles, pancakes and fruit (generally made by the kiddos!). Sometimes (if I get out of bed) I will whip up some scones along side some yummy eggs, coffee and fresh fruit. A favorite recipe of mine is these prosciutto cheddar scones with chives. These scones are so amazing, they are easily usable to bribe folks into pretty much anything you want (not naming any names here, you know you who are!) As with most of my recipes, you can vary ingredients and still achieve the same delicious taste.
I have made these many times with bacon (which is equally delicious) and other cheeses. But there is something special about a dish that has prosciutto and really good cheese. We are a Tillamook family through and through. You’ll always find 1 or 2 or 5 blocks of Tillamook cheese in our fridge. It’s an Oregon staple and once you’ve tried it, you won’t be able to go back to your ordinary cheese.
These scones are worthy of a ladies brunch, baby shower, bridal shower or just any given day of the week. Making these on the weekend and stashing a few uncooked scones in the freezer can make for a wonderful weekday breakfast.** With 3 kids, most school day mornings are busy just trying to get out the door. Let’s be honest, I can barely get everyone dressed, teeth brushed and shoes on (let’s not talk about the shoes!) so breakfast has to be easy and fast! If I whip some scones up over the weekend, I can easily pop a few in the oven while the herd of children shuffles to get ready. Is there anything better than a fresh warm scone? I think not!
Check out the recipe and make some for your next brunch or while you’re prepping for the start of the school year! Your whole family will love them! I would love to see your creations! Tag me on Instagram @CosettesKitchen or post on my Facebook Page.
