If you’re a fan of scones like we are, you will love these scones. Made with sun-dried tomatoes, smoked sea salt and smoky Gouda cheese. Doesn’t get much better than that! We like to serve smoky sun-dried tomato scones with soup or stew but they are super served alongside any meal. Make a scone sandwich by cutting your scone in half and filling it with your favorite sliced meat or cheese. My hubby loves smoky sun-dried tomato scones with his weekend eggs:)
Have lived in America’s Dairyland all of my long life, it would be fair to say the I know a thing or two about good cheese. Not a day goes by that I don’t eat some form of cheese. It’s nothing for me to walk into the kitchen, open up the refrigerator, take out a block of cheese, slice off a chunk and eat it. I can drive south down on Hwy. 32 a few miles and stop at G G’s Cheese Mart. If you want to try an award-winning Gouda cheese, than you have to got to try Marieke Gouda. A Farmstead Gouda Cheese that is handcrafted with passion. Marieke Gouda is Holland’s Family Cheese located in Thorp, Wisconsin. It’s simply the best Gouda, ever.
