Scottish Tattie Scones

So, I’m collecting and testing recipes that I want to include in our Christmas celebration and the days that our family will be together this year. Last year, my grandboys were just one year old and still so little, but this year the oldest two boys will be eating what we eat. I want to gather some recipes that will become our family traditions, those recipes that the grandsons will remember for the rest of their lives. I really want to include some authentic Scottish, Irish, British and Spanish foods since that is their heritage.

My first experiment was a Scottish potato scone recipe I got from Christina’s Cucina. She gives very thorough instructions and I followed them to a tee. They turned out great. Sort of bland, but she very clearly says that traditionally the scones should be fried with the bacon to absorb the flavors of the bacon.

I think these will be a great addition to our breakfasts. I think this one is a keeper!

  1. Oh lovely, Jill! Yes, they are very much just potato flavor, but they resonate with Scots as a sort of comfort food. They are absolutely delicious when fried after the bacon for a Scottish fry-up! Hope you try them that way with some eggs, toast and Heinz beans! 🙂 Thanks for the shout out! 🙂

    1. Oh wow! I feel like a celebrity has stopped by my little blog! Thanks for commenting! Yes, we fried them after the bacon just like you said, delicious! We didn’t have Heinz beans, though. Thanks again for stopping by!
