Saturday, June 16, 2012
A great Southwest quick bread. Scones go great with Chili and Chicken dishes, this one is full of great flavors that will be sure to be a great accompaniment!

3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of salt and pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 cup half and half
1 egg
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup cooked sausage drained
Optional: add 1/2 mixture of corn and black beans instead of sausage
1/4  cup chopped pepper medley of fresh green, red and yellow bell peppers or use Chile peppers
egg wash for the top of the scone

Preheat oven to 375 degree oven.
In a medium size mixing bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, oregano, garlic, salt, herbs and spices. Add in liquid and egg, mix thoroughly. Stir in cheeses and chopped peppers and sausage or corn mixture. Roll out on a floured board and cut into triangles. Bake on parchment lined cookie sheets (or you can use a muffin tins) and bake them until browned around 25 minutes ( brush tops with egg wash).

  2. These sound great. I'll have to remember them when it's chili weather.

  3. great idea, we enjoy jalapeno cornbread with chili and I know this will be good too with so many other things - fun weekend to all you you

  4. Hmmm...miss having scones! YOu just tempted me to make some.

  6. What a great idea...a savory scone! And the chopped bell peppers make them so pretty!

  7. These sound great. I bet they'd be perfect with chili!

  8. Love the southwestern flavors in these! There is a lot of egg dishes out there that are southwestern but hardly any breads and this is the first I have seen in a scone. Some days I would rather prefer a savory in the morning than sweet. This would fit the preference. Great recipe Claudia!

  9. These look amazing! I love scones, both sweet and savory.
