RECIPES FOR A DELICIOUS START TO THE DAY

Pumpkin Scones with Savory Topping

Pumpkin Scones with Savory Topping

We know Halloween is a few months away but we couldn’t help it as pumpkin tastes so good any time of year. Also, we wanted to get a head start on ideas to make the most of all those beautiful barrels of pumpkins that soon start appearing in the grocery stores in October. Believe it or not, they are good for more than just jack-o-lanterns!

Scones make for a hearty breakfast that will keep you feeling full right up until lunch. While they are traditionally eaten for afternoon tea, here at For The Love of Breakfast we like to turn the tables on tradition. Am sure you recall our delicious Breakfast Pizza! A pizza specifically designed for breakfast – yep, we did it! But back to scones… These pumpkin scones make for the perfect breakfast or brunch dish if you are after something a little more savory.
