I'm a frequenter of garage sales. I once filled a 1200 square-foot house with about $3000 of upcycled and on-sale stuff, including the living room set, and an antique armoire! At one little Friday morning adventure, I found a sixty year-old Irish cookbook, and inside, were all these great recipes... One of which was for Potato Scones. It's pretty straightforward, but I thought it could use a savory kick. So I added bacon crumbles and rosemary. It's filling, aromatic, and wow! I'll be making these again!
POTATO SCONES WITH BACON & ROSEMARY
2 cups mashed potatoes, room temperature
1 cup flour
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
5-6 pieces bacon, fried and chopped
1 tablespoon rosemary, chopped
In a large bowl, combine potatoes, flour, butter, salt and baking powder. (I used my hands to mix thoroughly.) Fold in bacon and rosemary, and form into 7-8 pieces, about ½” thick. They can be any shape – round, rectangle, triangle... Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cool on place or wire rack, butter, and enjoy!
