Potato and Bacon Scones


  • 4 x 250 ml Sasko Cake Flour (500g)
  • 5 ml salt
  • 45 ml baking powder
  • 60 g cold margarine, grated
  • 2 potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed
  • 8 rashers of bacon, chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 250 ml milk

Chef's hint: You can replace the bacon with chopped peppadews, olives or feta. For a meal in one, add all 3.


Preheat oven to 180C and line one large baking tray with baking paper.

Sift the flour, salt and baking powder together. Rub in the margarine. Add the potatoes, bacon, egg and milk to the flour. Mix together to form dough.

Roll out gently to 2cm high, on a floured surface. Cut out with a medium-sized cookie cutter. Reroll and press until all dough is used up.

Place on a greased baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until well-risen and light brown.

Makes 12 - 16 scones.
