It is inevitable that around the holiday season we end up with leftover ham. We often serve ham for Christmas dinner and we love to make it for dinner parties. However, never once have we managed to eat and entire ham in one sitting. Over the years I’ve come up with different ways to use up ham in casseroles, breakfast scrambles, and more. But savory ham and cheese scones are my absolute favorite recipe. I simply make a non-sweet scone dough, add shredded cheese and chopped up leftover ham, and bake them in the oven on a cookie sheet. My son says they taste like a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, I think they are more like a breakfast sandwich.
Whether served up for brunch with fluffy cloud eggs, or at the lunch table alongside a hearty bowl of roasted red pepper and tomato soup, these fast and simple scones will make short work of whatever leftover ham you find in your fridge after the holidays.
