Today you’re going to learn all about my weird sleeping habits.

I know this is the type of post you dream of reading.

It’s cool – I love learning about people too.

Now here is the thing about the way I sleep.

I hate sharing. I don’t want to share a blanket with my husband. I want my own blanket that no one can steal or pull off of me while I sleep.

So instead I have my own method.

I have a huge king size blanket (this blanket is the best!) that I wrap myself into (imagine a large burrito) so there is no opportunity for any cold air to enter my blanket.

Then I position myself into complete comfort and go to sleep.

Because I refuse to share my husband pretty much does the same thing.

I’m telling you, the key to a happy marriage is separate blankets on the bed.

You’re always comfortable and never have to worry about anyone stealing your blankets. It’s a win-win.

Do you know what else is a win-win?

Scones.

Especially when those scones are savory.

Don’t get me wrong I love a sweet scone but they don’t keep me full for long.

This savory scone is packed full of Parmesan and lots of prosciutto.

It was like eating an awesome Italian sandwich in scone form.

Oh, and I didn’t stop there – NOPE! I then went and slathered those delicious scones in Challenge Butter.

Here is the thing about good butter, it actually makes a difference! Challenge butter is 100% real cream butter, it’s made from hormone-free milk and includes no additives. That means you get a fresh delicious butter flavor in every single bite.

Plus they control the process of making their butter starting at the farms and ending with the packaging. Quality ingredients are worth it!

Now, if you have never made scones before you should know they are super easy (seriously go make them right now. I’ll wait.) and full of delicious butter flavor.

And while I love mine with butter (obvs) it’s also great slathered in creme fraiche.

Another great thing about these Parmesan prosciutto scones is their flexibility.

If it’s hard for you to find prosciutto in your area simply substitute with any other thick-sliced ham.

Although personally I think prosciutto is the way to go.

Even if you have to search every store to find it, it’s definitely worth it.

Can these be made with other types of meat? How about bacon? If bacon is o.k. what changes will need to be made in the recipe? THANKS

Hi Moe! Yes, you can easily substitute different meat. If you use bacon just fry it up till it's crispy and then chop it up follow the same directions. Hope you love the scones!
