Ever tried a savory scone? This recipe will make you a believer! Zucchini, basil and two different cheeses lend tons of flavor to these standout scones.
Scones are undoubtedly in my top 5 of favorite baked goods. I’ve just always taken a shine to them. (Carbs + butter = heaven.) Not till recently, though, did I find interest in savory scones, which instantly became a mild obsession. Countless Google searches and Pinterest perusing followed. What came of that curiosity is this recipe for zucchini scones. Also: an appreciation for sneaking vegetables into otherwise non-nutritious food.
It’s fair to assume that many of you have had your fill of zucchini for the year…and I don’t blame you! But if your garden is still producing it or your friend kindly brought you a big ol’ zucchini the size of an infant, you’ve got to do something with it, right??
So, grate that squash up and make scones with it!
These have many of the qualities of a traditional scone, except they aren’t sweet. I like how the basil, cheddar and feta punch up the flavor. Zucchini is pretty mild, which makes it compatible with other ingredients. It really is the friendly neighbor of vegetables.
