Coming from an Irish and Scottish background, these scones are the perfect side with any breakfast meal as well as a family favorite! Enjoy. Add onion, pepper, or any other spices for flavor. Serve with butter.


  • 1 pound cooked potatoes
  • 4 ounces self-rising flour
  • 2 ounces butter
  • ½ pinch salt


Heat a lightly greased griddle or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Mash potatoes with flour, butter, and salt until a stiff dough forms.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead dough lightly and roll dough out to about 1/2-inch thick. Cut into six triangular wedges.

Working in batches, cook scones, turning once on hot griddle until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
