Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk sage pork sausage
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2-1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • Dijon mustard

Directions

In a large skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink; drain.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, ground mustard, baking soda, salt and pepper. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk egg whites and buttermilk; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Stir in sausage and 2 cups cheese. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times.
Divide dough in half; pat each half into an 8-in. circle. Cut each into eight wedges. Separate wedges and place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Beat egg yolks and water; brush over tops. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake at 400° for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with Dijon mustard. Yield: 16 scones.
