Potato Side Dishes

Potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes! You'll be eating these scones in no time at all. If you have time to make mashed potatoes, then you probably have time for this scone recipe. I made a thin and thick version (both easy and yummy). I love potatoes any way and time and I'm also fond of eating bread/biscuits/croissants with my meals-- so combines both of my loves.

My mashed potatoes were made specifically for these scones and little to no time passed from when they were mashed potatoes until they were scones. However, next time you have left-over mashed potatoes, turn them into scones!

Thick Scones

Preheat oven to: 400°

Preheat griddle to: 350°

Thin Scones

Preheat griddle to: 350°

Prep time: 30 minutes

Thick Scones

1.5 - 2 pounds potatoes, boiled and mashed

1 and 1/2 cups flour, sifted

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup buttermilk

Thin Scones

1 pound potatoes, boiled and mashed

1 cup sifted flour

1/2 teaspoon salt


What is Buttermilk?

Is buttermilk just butter and milk?

Buttermilk is the liquid that is leftover after churning butter. It's a little thicker than regular milk.

How do you make your own buttermilk?

You can make a great substitute by combining a cup of milk with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice. Let stand about 5-10 minutes.

What can you make with buttermilk?

Besides these scones, I use buttermilk to make my Chocolate Buttermilk Bread and my Classic Banana Bread.

Instructions

  1. Boil and mash potatoes.
  2. Add ingredients and mix well (I use an electric mixer with whisk attachments until it gets too thick and then I use my dough hook attachments or just my hands).
  3. Kneed into soft dough. Form into circle on wax paper (thick for thick scones or use a rolling pin and roll out for thinner scones).
  4. Cut circle into 8 slices using pizza cutter and place in refrigerator for about 10 minutes. (If you don't have a nice flat spot for it, put it on a plate or cookie sheet first before putting in frig.)
  5. Remove from frig. Remove slices from wax paper (I was able to peel the thin slices from the paper and I used a pie server to pick up the thick ones.) Place slices on buttered griddle. Grill both sides until golden browned and crisp. Thin scones are ready at this point.
  6. Place thick scones on pizza pan or cookie sheet and finish cooking in oven for 10-20 minutes at 400°.

Heather says: These are pretty tasty by themselves or as part of a meal. I enjoy eating them plain or with sour cream. If you're pressed for time, you can leave your dough slices in the frig a bit longer. If you don't have an electric griddle, you should get one already. It's a fantastic investment (about 20 dollars). I love using it for pancakes when cooking breakfast for company because it certainly speeds up the process instead of one-at-a-timing-it or trying to captain multiple burners and pans at once. Enjoy!
