Step aside, cinnamon, chocolate chips, and raisins. (Wait – did I really just say that about three of my favorite things?! Sorry – I’ll get back to you soon, my friends!) These Idaho potato scones are for those times when you want to walk on the savory side. Take a bite and you’ll find garlic, blue cheese, and roasted fingerling potatoes all packed into one little scone that’s flavored with lager beer and topped with Parmesan cheese. To imagine the flavor, think beer cheese soup crossed with garlic bread and a loaded baked potato!
You have to try these savory scones warm – no jam needed. Be careful, though, as you might eat too many and not have room for dessert. Who am I kidding? There’s always room for dessert! Since scones are very dense, I’d suggest pairing them with a light and creamy dessert like my slow cooker crème brûlée or homemade frozen custard.
