The peppery flavor of arugula pairs great with the zesty dressing. We add cherry tomatoes for a sweet burst.

Who can say no to cheesy scrambled eggs? We sure can’t. These eggs are fluffy, creamy, and packed with cheesy goodness. Perfect combo with savory scones.

Ingredients: eggs, milk, butter, and cheese. Go for cheddar or your favorite blend.

Tip: Cook on low heat, and stir gently. This keeps them soft.

We love adding chives. They bring a mild onion flavor. Scones and these eggs? So satisfying together.

4 – Smoked Salmon

Looking for that savory, smoky hit? Smoked salmon is our go-to. It’s luxurious, full of rich flavors, and a perfect sidekick to savory scones. Ingredients? Simple: smoked salmon, a squeeze of fresh lemon, and a sprinkle of dill.

The smoky essence and buttery texture carry the dish. The acidity from the lemon balances the richness. We’ve tried it with a variety of herbs, but fresh dill? Trust us, it’s unbeatable.

5 – Roasted Beet Salad

Roasted beets bring a sweet, earthy flavor to our scones. The vibrant red color adds visual appeal. We toss beets in olive oil, salt, and pepper before roasting.

Roasting enhances their natural sweetness. We love them with a dash of balsamic vinegar. The beets’ softness contrasts perfectly with the crunchy scones.

Their earthy tones make them a unique side.

6 – Spinach and Feta Stuffed Mushrooms

Alright, stuffed mushrooms, anyone? We’ve got a fan-favorite here.

Spinach and feta do all the work. Fresh spinach, creamy feta, a hint of garlic. We love the blend of rich and salty flavors. Earthy mushrooms balance the cheese.

Pro tip: Use small mushrooms for bite-sized snackability. Bake until golden.

We devour these every time!

7 – Honey Glazed Carrots

Carrot lovers, these honey-glazed delights are your new fave. Sweet, earthy bites with a hint of spice. We roast them with honey, butter, and a touch of chili flakes. Easy and yum.

Roasting makes them tender and caramelized. Honey adds stickiness and sweetness. Butter? Pure richness. Chili kicks with heat. It’s a party in your mouth.

8 – Marinated Olives

Olives are tiny flavor bombs. We marinate them in extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and herbs.

The result? A salty, tangy snack that’s perfect with scones. We add lemon zest for brightness.

Our favorite? A mix of green and black olives. The briny taste plays well with savory scones. We can’t get enough.

9 – Avocado and Tomato Salad

We love this simple yet vibrant side dish. Fresh avocado and juicy tomatoes make an unbeatable pair. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

The creaminess of avocado blends perfectly with the tanginess of tomatoes. Red onion slices give a little crunch. Basil leaves add a fresh aroma.

This salad is easy to prepare and always a hit at gatherings.

10 – Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Need something fancy yet simple? Prosciutto wrapped asparagus is the answer. We wrap tender asparagus spears in thin, salty prosciutto slices. Pop them in the oven until crispy. The prosciutto adds a savory punch, the asparagus stays crisp and fresh.

A drizzle of balsamic glaze ties it all together. They’re juicy, cheesy, and aromatic. The tomatoes pop, the mozzarella melts in your mouth, and the basil brings a punch of herbiness.

Quick to assemble and always a hit.

Corn remains juicy and sweet. The buttery goodness soaks in. Herbs give it a fresh kick. Ingredients? Corn, butter, herbs. Grill it right.
