Homemade gluten Free cheese and onion scones / tattie scones / triangular shaped scones - with extra mature cheddar cheese and spring onions

Gluten Free Cheese and Onion Potato Scones

You know those potato scones I posted the other day? Well, I made an even better version with added cheese and spring onions. πŸ˜›

Like I said before, they’re incredibly easy to make. They’re essentially just buttery mash with a bit of flour. Plus, they’re toasted in a frying pan so it’s very quick. No faffing around with baking needed.

I can easily see these becoming a breakfast staple for me. It’s such a great alternative to toasts!

And btw, someone on Instagram told me that they freeze well so it’s not like you have to make them from scratch every time. I haven’t tried this myself yet so I’m not sure if it affects the texture, but I’ll update you on this when I make another batch (probably very soon! hehe).

Gluten Free Cheese and Onion Potato Scones
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Scottish
Serves: 8 potato scones
  • 250-300g potatoes
  • 40g extra mature cheddar (or cheese of your choice)
  • 2 spring onions/scallions
  • 50g all purpose gluten free self-raising flour (add 1 tsp baking powder if using a plain blend instead of self-raising)
  • + 20g extra for rolling the dough
  • 25g salted butter
  • A dash of salt (to taste)


Step by step process of making potato scones


  1. Peel and cut the potatoes into cubes.
  2. Place them in a saucepan with water and a generous dash of salt and boil until soft.
  3. Drain the potatoes in a colander.
  4. Transfer the cooked potatoes into a mixing bowl along with the butter and mash until smooth.
  5. Stir in the spring onions (finely chopped) and grated cheese.
  6. Add a good dash of salt (to taste).
  7. Then finally, stir in the flour and knead the dough with your hand until you have a smooth dough ball (like in the picture collage above). Note:Β the amount of flour needed can vary depending on how much water is left in your potatoes. If the dough is too dry/cracking, add a little bit of water, a quarter teaspoon at a time, until it looks right.


Step by step process of making potato scones


  1. Dust some flour over your work surface and on top of your dough ball. I use about 15-20g. Note: my preferred method is to use a non-stick baking mat.
  2. Flatten it with your hands into a circular shape. Note: you can add a bit more flour at any point if necessary (to prevent sticking).
  3. Then take over with a rolling pin and roll until it’s about 1 cm thick.
  4. Smooth any cracks around the edged with your fingers.
  5. At this point, sprinkle some extra flour on top and spread it around with your fingers.
  6. Cut into slices with a pizza cutter or knife.
  7. To make sure the scones aren’t sticking to your work surface, run a spatula underneath (and push some loose flour under, to unstick them, if needed).



  1. Heat up a frying pan or skillet on low heat with a tiny bit of butter, just a smidgen, and spread it around the pan.
  2. Add a batch of scones and cook for about 8 minutes (4 minutes on each sides) or until they are nicely golden and toasted.
  3. Serve warm with butter on top.

Hope you like them. πŸ™‚

  1. I must have missed something?!
    At what stage do the onions and cheese get added.
    This was a total mess

    • Hi, you add the onions and cheese after mashing the potatoes. Sorry, it was shown in the picture collage, I had simply missed this small step in the directions.

  2. Very nice recipe have tried easy to cook n easy to handle
    Best part is less ingredients with yummy flavour.
