Oat and cheese drop scones
I have been following Nigella's latest cooking programme with amused interest. Last week, she made some oat drop scones (which are classified as GF providing you can tolerate oats, some people can't) so I sought out the recipe on-line here
We originally tried out the recipe, using 1/2 oz less sugar, 1/2 the cinnamon just to see how they cooked and tasted - not too bad at all, although we had ours with maple syrup!
Today though, not having any bread available, I decided to try and make a savoury version of the recipe.
Herewith the pictures:
3 1/2 oz oats:
Ground into a flour (or use oat flour)
1/4 tsp sea salt, 15 grinds of black pepper, 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 oz grated Parmesan or Grand Padano:
3 1/2 fluid oz milk (any kind), and 1 beaten egg. Oops, nearly forgot the 1 oz of mature Cheddar cheese:
A few drizzles of oil was put into a hot frying pan and 4 individual tablespoons of the oat mixture put in:
They tasted of cheese, not too much, just enough for the cheese to lend its flavour rather than overpower the drop scone.
