These mini sage and onion scones take the classic Stuffing flavours and marry them together perfectly to create little savoury snacks that are great for a Christmas buffet. 


  • 225g Self-Raising Flour with a little extra for dusting
  • 50g Unsalted Butter
  • 125-150ml Milk
  • 1 beaten Egg
  • 5 fresh Sage Leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 Onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1tbsp Olive Oil for frying


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and cook the finely chopped onion for around 5 minutes until it has softened then set aside to cool.
  3. Next, pulse the flour and butter together in a food processor until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs before then adding the finely chopped sage, cooled onion and enough milk to make a soft but not sticky dough. Top Tip: add the milk a little at a time and pulse after each addition to make sure you don’t make the mixture too wet. 
  4. Tip the scone mixture out onto a lightly floured surface, knead briefly, then roll out to around a 1cm thickness. Using a 1.5cm round cutter, cut out the mini scones then brush tops with a little beaten egg, put onto a baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes until risen and golden.
  5. Serve warm with a little butter for a delicious festive treat or serve as canapés by filling them with a little cranberry sauce and some sliced roasted turkey.
