These SCD + Low Carb Ham & Swiss Scones are a super delicious way to start the day! And are they ever delicious with a healthy pat of dijon butter–SO GOOD!
Good morning, friends! Our savory SCD Scones are finally here! And yes, we’re working on a sweet version for the spring—feel free to comment below with the flavor combination you’d like to see!
I’ve long been a fan of ham and Swiss in both sandwiches and eggs as well as with a good biscuit. I’m crazy about this recipe as the ingredients are baked right into the scone, it really packs a super protein punch–especially combined with the almond flour, can’t beat it!
These are of course beautiful at breakfast slathered with some dijon butter, but they are equally good as a dinner side–a great low-carb way to spice up your evening meal! We store ours in the refrigerator and pop them in the toaster oven for a few minutes to warm them a touch before serving. After you’ve made your dijon butter, it’s a nice idea to pack it or press it into a small condiment dish–that way you can store it in the fridge with the scones and plus it’s just a lovely way to serve the butter on a breakfast or dinner table.
Enjoy the scones, Happy Baking!😊Print
