A crêpe is a very thin pancake usually made from wheat flour. They originate from Brittany, a region in the northwest of France, although have become popular in the rest of France and globally. I like to make my crêpes with both regular, and buckwheat flour as I think it gives the pancake a lovely tang of a flavor when combined with the cheese and ham. If you have a crêpe maker, they are very useful pieces of equipment but if not a crêpe pan is necessary. It's also important to make the batter the day before you want to use it.

Goooooood morning! How’s your week so far? Anything exciting going on? I’m typing this up, bolting to an early morning yoga class, then heading to the airport! SO excited. I’ll be in gone for 5 weeks (. ), but don’t worry, I have plenty of new recipes to keep you busy in the kitchen. And who knows… maybe I’ll even cook a little abroad! Maybe.
But first, breakfast! I made these savory scones for you earlier in the week and it was love at first bite. Gooey cheese, plenty of black forest ham, and fresh scallions all baked up in a flaky, buttery scone… I mean, does it get any better?!
- melt-in-your-mouth tender
- slightly crunchy at the edges
- loaded with ham and cheese
- sprinkled with fresh scallions
- perfect for breakfast, brunch, or dinner
- and incredibly hard to resist… especially warm from the oven.
As mentioned earlier, these scones are really easy! To make them you’re going to need flour, salt, black pepper, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, butter, an egg, plain full-fat yogurt, whole Milk, cheddar cheese, ham, and fresh scallions. I know, it’s quite a list! But all of these ingredients combined is what makes these scones SO incredible.
Now. I know I’m like a broken record with this tip, but it’s worth saying again: the key to flaky, bakery-style scones is very, very, very COLD BUTTER.
Why cold butter? Please read on! Cold butter is what creates scones that are flaky, just slightly crumbly, and tender. If your butter is warm and melts before baking, you’re going to loose those buttery layers that are essential to a scone. When it comes time to add the butter into the dough, you should resist using your hands, if possible, since body heat will quickly melt the butter. Instead, use a pastry cutter or two forks. My favorite method is grating the butter then quickly working it into the dough with two forks.
To cut the scones, simply use a large, sharp knife to slice the circle into 8 even triangles. And remember, scones are very forgiving, so don’t beat yourself up if they look a little… rustic. The trick is to work very quickly and try not to handle the dough too much. If your dough feels warm or very sticky, simply pop it back into the fridge or freezer for a few minutes and let it chill, then get back to work.
I chose to top these scones with extra ham, cheese, and scallions. This part is totally optional, but I just couldn’t resist taking it to the next level. If you’re not going to eat these right away, I’d suggest skipping the extra toppings. Trust me, they have plenty of yummy hiding inside.

Can I make this without making the Irish soda bread?
I love how sturdy the Irish soda bread is for this sandwich but you can totally make it with any bread you like. Classic ham and cheese toasties are made with a sturdy white or brown bread. Feel free to substitute your own choice of bread instead of making the Irish soda bread.
What’s great about making these sliders is that you can make them ahead of time or freeze any leftovers for another meal.
Make ahead: After assembling the mini sandwiches in a large casserole pan, wrap the pan tightly in plastic wrap or place in and keep in the refrigerator until the next morning or freezer (for up to 2 months) until ready to bake.
Storage: To store leftovers, transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
