Vegetable Scones

It is a Boxing Day tradition in our house to make savoury scones with leftover veg from Christmas Day.

This is a simple recipe that uses leftover mashed vegetables and cheese to make a tasty scone – great served with (more) cheese or with a nice chunky soup (made with leftovers of course)!
