I'm not normally a scone person at all, never much seen the point. However as may have now become apparent my major weakness with food is bread (how did you guess?!) and I have been trying to come up with bread alternatives that are diet friendly, so imagine my joy when I found the recipe for these on the Internet.
They are more like potato cakes than scones and have the appearance of English muffins. Whatever they are I'm quite pleased to have discovered them.
I had around 120g of waxy potatoes (such as Charlotte potatoes) cooked, mashed and slightly cooled. I mixed approx 50g of cottage cheese and 60g of extra light soft cheese (I'd run out of cottage cheese and improvised) into the potato. I then mixed in two eggs (use more or less depending on the consistency of the potato mix) until it had all taken on a dough like consistency. For flavour I added a small amount of light extra mature cheddar and some salt and pepper.
I then rolled the 'dough' to around an inch thickness and cut into rounds using a pastry cutter. Once all of the dough was used up I placed the scones onto a baking stone and topped with finely grated light extra mature cheddar (I used a Parmesan grater).
