  1. These scones were wonderful! Made a half recipe last night for breakfast this morning. Kept 2 out and put the rest in the freezer. Very tasty, soft scones. I wasn't too sure, b/c the dough was not really kneadable--was very, very sticky and most ended up on my hands! But I didn't add more flour and they turned out well! Thanks for posting! Will likely make again!
  2. These were made for breakfast this morning with the remainder now in the freezer to be enjoyed at a later date. I took one reviewers suggestion and added in a dried herb mixture. I used a pound of low-fat sausage and reduced the butter to 4 tablespoons due to the large amount of cheese being added. No fat plain yogurt was thinned and used for the buttermilk. The scones were great and the timing was perfect.
  3. These are really good. Great to grab from the freezer for a breakfast-on-the-run. I think this recipe is very versatile, and plan to experiment with adding different things to it.
  4. Tish, these are great. I used low-fat sausage and half whole wheat flour and both worked great! Next time I make them I will add more sausage (turkey) and some herbs per my dh's request. They heated up easily in the microwave (direct from freezer) and I think they're actually better reheated. I put each slice in a little ziptop sandwich bag and then put all of those in a larger freezer bag. Hubby is so happy to have self-serve breaky that isn't cereal.
  5. Lovely! I used some organic sausage that was very lean. Easy to make.


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
