Savory Broccoli, Cheddar, and Chive Scones

A plate of delicious Broccoli, Cheddar, and Chive Scones

After holiday travel, holiday celebrations, holiday illness (twice), and catching up with work, I’ve finally had a few minutes to put together a recipe worth waiting for: Savory Broccoli, Cheddar, and Chive Scones. The original version of this savory scone recipe is from The Sunset Cookbook. Today I changed it up a bit and included broccoli to the mix for a perfect flavor combination.

Ready to bake: Broccoli, Cheddar, and Chive Scones

My mom and I made these scones together, and when they were finished and we sampled them, I had to laugh. Although she liked them, my mom has a major sweet tooth and I could tell she was a little disappointed to be eating savory, rather than sweet, scones! Save dessert for later and serve these Savory Broccoli, Cheddar and Chive Scones with a bowl of hot soup or a green salad.
