Fabulous Freelancer Foodie Recipe: French Fried Onion and Herb Scones

This French fried onion and herb scones recipe is a worthy alternative to the traditional sweet pastry, or if you’re looking for something more flavorful than a dinner roll!

Note: a variation of this recipe appeared in the September, 2019 edition of Relish.


  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons of dried Italian herb seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 ¼ cups of crispy fried onions
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 1/3 cup of fresh chopped parsley leaves


  1. Make sure the oven is first preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, Italian herb seasoning, and salt together in a large bowl.
  3. Crumble 1 cup of the crispy fried onions, and stir them in.
  4. Add in the egg, olive oil, milk, and chopped parsley leaves.
  5. Gently stir all of the ingredients until they’re only just blended.
  6. Place the resulting dough onto a surface that’s been lightly floured.
  7. Shape the dough into a circle that’s about 6 ½ inches in diameter, and ¾-inch thick.
  8. Press ¼ cup of fried, not crumbled onions onto the top of the dough.
  9. Cut the dough into 8 wedges and place each wedge two inches apart from the other on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  10. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the scones are golden brown, then transfer them to a wire rack so that they can slightly cool before serving.
