I love scones, cheese and pepperoni; so I put them all together yesterday and made delicious scones for breakfast. In the end they were medium size and around 160 calories each – not too bad! I love making scones and playing with ingredients to make different kinds (dill and feta is another favourite of mine.) These ones turned out so yummy I just had to post the recipe for them.
