Ham & Cheese Scones

I know a lot of y’all are baking up a storm during quarantine… and damn I wish I could be like y’all, haha. I just am not a baker! Although the one thing I can bake my ass off at is fucking scones. Why scones? Who knows, but savory or sweet- i got you. These Ham & Cheese Scones are SO FUCKING GOOD y’all, and are the perfect thing to make at the beginning of the week to heat up for breakfast all week long.

I’m really excited to announce that this recipe is in collaboration with Follow Your Heart! They’re one of my favorite brands, and I’ve gotten so many requests to make more recipes using their products from y’all, since they’re so accessible across the US. The product I used in this recipe is their Cheddar Shreds. They’re so dang good and really send this recipe over the top!

Here’s what you’ll need to make these delicious little salty cloud triangles-

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup very cold vegan butter
  • ¾ cup plain unsweetened soy milk + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup Follow Your Heart Cheddar Shreds
  • 1/3-1/2 cup vegan ham, cubed (I used Tofurky Ham Deli Slices)
  • 2 tbsp chives or scallions, finely chopped

Scones are actually surprisingly easy to make. You just mix everything together, roll it into a circle, cut into wedges, and bake. They’re one of the easier baked goods to make even though they may seem a little intimidating since they’re associated with like niche fancy little coffee shops, haha. Heres how you make these ones!

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a measuring cup, add your soy milk and apple cider vinegar, stir and let sit for 10 minutes to create buttermilk.
  3. In a large bowl, add your flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt.  Mix to combine.  Cube your cold butter and add to the flour, and cut in using a pastry cutter (you can also do this in a food processor, just avoid using your hands so the butter doesn’t start to melt) until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Stir in your buttermilk, cheese, ham, and chives until a soft dough forms.
  5. Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times just until it comes together.  Using a rolling pin (that’s chilled), roll the dough into an 8” circle that’s roughly 1” thick.  Cut into 8 wedges.
  6. Place the scones on the baking sheet with a little space between each one, and place into your 425F preheated oven for 20-30 minutes until firm to the touch or lightly browned. 
  7. Serve with extra butter, and / or brush melted butter over the top when they come out of the oven. 

See I told you, I promise it’s sooooo easy to make & that you’ll fall in love instantly.  Like. Super fucking instantly.

But that’s it! Super easy, super delicious, and definitely something amazing to make for the spring time blues (is that even a thing?), or really any time, let’s be honest. Once again, I just want to give a big thanks to Follow Your Heart for sponsoring this recipe and allowing me to share it with y’all! It’s truly delicious. As always, if you make this, make sure to tag me @plvntfood / #plvntfood and tag @followyourheart as well, so we can all see it! Love y’all with my cold little heart.
