This tasty meaty snack is perfect for on the go.


  • Scone mix

  • 3 cups self raising flour

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 100g butter, softened

  • 1 1/4 cups milk or buttermilk

  • Toppings

  • tomato paste

  • hot salami, sliced

  • bacon, thin strips

  • chorizo sausage, sliced

  • parsley, roughly cut

  • salt & pepper


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 200C. Lightly grease and flour a baking tray. Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

  • 2.

    Add nearly all the milk at once and mix in quickly with a knife. Add remaining milk if needed and pull dough together into a rough ball. Turn out on to a floured board and knead by turning and pressing with heel of hand 3 or 4 times. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a rough rectangle shape, about 1 cm thickness.

  • 3.

    Smear the dough with tomato paste and add your selection of toppings. Take the end of the rectangle and roll the dough, length ways, away from you. Cut the roll into 8 even pieces.

  • 4.

    Place scones close together on a lightly greased baking tray. Brush tops with a little milk and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until well-risen and golden.
