Scrumptious Savoury Cheese and Olive Scone Tray Bake

Jump to Recipe

These cheese and olive scones are a lovely alternative to bread and go well with a hot bowl of soup. These scones are light and fluffy, and one is definitely not enough! This recipe is so easy to make and has no cutting involved.

You can eat these scones of their own, or you could cut them in half and spread some scrumptious butter in the middle. Mmm, yum yum!

SCONE HISTORY

Scones originate from Scotland, and they started as being flat and round and baked and cooked on a griddle. They would be triangular in shape when served. When baking powder was introduced, then they would be oven-baked.

INGREDIENTS

The cheese I have used is mature cheddar, but you can choose any cheese you like. You could have smoked cheese or chilli cheese to give it a distinct flavour. I use Parmesan cheese for the topping, but you can change this to a cheese of choice. If you’re a cheese lover, try my easy macaroni cheese recipe!

I have used pitted green olives, but you can use black if you prefer. Roughly chop them, so you have nice tasty chunks when you bite into your scone.

If you don’t like olives, you could substitute them for sundried tomatoes, or you could half your dough and have a bit of each. The possibilities are endless!
