Ham and Cheese Scones

Here is a great way to use any leftover ham, if of course there is any leftover ham. 😉

Simple and easy to make in no time, this is a great way to use any ham that didn’t make it into a sandwich or bean soup after the family gathered for the holiday. I do this about every time we have a ham, because they can be expensive and I’m getting every last bit out of it. Save that bone for soup, too.

If I’m not making this Slow Cooker Ham Bone Bean Soup or these Pineapple Ham and Cheese Hand Pies, then scones are next up to make use of any ham that might have found it’s way from not getting eaten the night before. While this Spicy Citrus Baked Ham Glaze was great, the leftovers I used for these ham and cheese scones hit the spot.

With scones you don’t need to overwork the dough, just press until it comes together, you don’t want tough scones!

Ham and cheese scones are savory, salty, and cheesy to boot. They come together with simple ingredients and are ready in under 1 hour!
Servings: 8 servings
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 22 minutes
Total: 37 minutes

Ingredients 

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat. Dice enough ham into uniform pieces to make 1 cup total. Set aside.
  • Whisk the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar together. Using your fingers or a pastry blender, work the butter into the flour until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Mix in the cheese, green onions, and ham until evenly distributed.
  • Add 3/4 cup of the cream, mixing with your fingers to combine. Press and squeeze the dough together, add some more cream until the dough comes together. Leave at least 2 tablespoons to brush on before baking. On a well-floured work surface pat the dough into a smooth 7" disk about 3/4" thick. Move the dough disk to the baking sheet. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the disk into 8 wedges, spreading the wedges apart a bit on the baking sheet.
  • Brush the scones with a bit of cream. Bake for 20-22 minutes, until they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and cool. Serve warm, or at room temperature with or without butter (optional).

  1. Hi Kevin. I’ve never made scones. I’m making lamb for Easter, but I may have to buy some ham so I can try these. I can get nice Smithfield ham steaks. These look so flaky and delicious, they would be great for Easter brunch.

    1. Hey there Dorothy! Scones are a lazy version of making biscuits in my book! One big one that gets cut… LOL. I just got a shipment from Smithfield, love their pork! A big hug to you and Gary. 🙂

  2. I’ve been anticipating this recipe since I saw the little teaser on Insta! It’s as good as I imagined it to be! Now I need to get me some left over ham!

  3. 5 stars
    So, you know I’m not the biggest fan of ham, Kevin, but I have a VERY strong feeling these stellar scones would have me singing a different tune!!!! They look absolutely amazing, buddy!! SUCH a great way to use up that leftover ham! I may make Boy ham for Easter JUST so I can make these scones later! 🙂 Pinned! Cheers, buddy!

  4. I love savory scones Kevin! I’ve got one up my sleeve that I’ll be sharing shortly too! Perfect with a nice hot bowl of soup! Thanks for sharing this one. Have a great week!

    I never make scones and I have no idea why I don’t. Love the savory flavors going on in here and so smart of you to help us with our leftover ham. I mean really, we can only eat straight up ham for so many days, right?

    1. They are truly so easy to make and I found savory ones are just as tasty as their sweeter cousin! 😉

  6. Hi Kevin! I absolutely love savoury scones and these would be so perfect for an Easter brunch table!

  7. I love this idea. I never feel more wasteful than when I have to throw meat away because it’s gone bad, but finding good ways to reuse it is tough (the kids will only eat so much soup). These look amazing. Thanks!

  8. What a delicious way to use leftover ham – waste not, want not, right? I would want to cook a small ham just so I could make these! And, of course, you can’t beat ham and cheese. I bet these are so good straight out of the oven! Pinned! Cheers to a great week 🙂

    1. Thanks Dawn! Been super busy here and I could use one of these about now! I love savory scones, they don’t always have to be sweet, right?
