Give your taste buds a treat with easy homemade sausage scones! Buttery, flaky, and filled with gooey cheese and savory sausage, they taste like they’re straight from your favorite bakery. Top with maple butter for a touch of sweetness in every bite!



Sausage & Cheddar Scones

1 cup  Pork Sausage Links, cooked & crumbled
8 oz sharp white cheddar, grated
1 cup AP Flour
½ cup Bread Flour (optional- you can use all AP)
1 egg
½ cup milk
5 tbsp cold butter, cut into small pieces
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Maple Butter

4 tbsp Salted Butter, Softened
3 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  2. Using a pastry cutter, a fork, or your hands, mix the butter into the flour mixture, working quickly so the butter doesn’t melt.
  3. Whisk the egg into the milk, then add to the flour mixture with the crumbled sausage and shredded cheese. OPTIONAL – reserve a few bits of cheddar and sausage to top each scone before baking.
  4. Combine until a shaggy dough forms, then pour out onto the counter. Form a dough round with your hands, using an extra sprinkle of flour if things get messy.
  5. Cut the dough into 8 even triangles, and transfer to a baking sheet.
  6. Preheat the oven to 400F. While it heats, chill the scones in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  7. If you saved any cheddar and sausage bits, top each scone with a small amount. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden brown.
  8. Serve with maple butter (mix 3 parts maple syrup with 4 parts softened salted butter) and enjoy! Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
