Prep Time
Caramelised Onion, Feta and Thyme Scones


  • 2 Tbsp butter + extra to serve
  • 3 small brown onions, finely sliced
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves, divided
  • 3 ¼ cups Edmonds Scone Mix 
  • 1 cup grated strong cheddar cheese
  • 1 ¼ cups cold water
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled or diced
  • Milk or egg wash (optional) 



  1. Melt butter in a large frying pan on medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft (about 5 minutes). Add vinegar, sugar and 2 tablespoons thyme leaves. Cook for a further 10 minutes, until golden and caramelised. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 220 ºC conventional or 200ºC fan-forced. Line a large oven tray with baking paper.
  3. Combine scone mix, cheddar and remaining tablespoon thyme leaves in a large mixing bowl. Add water and mix together with a wooden spoon to form a soft, stick dough. Fold in caramelised onions and feta.
  4. Roll mixture out onto a floured surface to approximately 2cm thick. Cut into 12 rounds or squares. Place scones on prepared tray and allow to rest for 10 minutes before baking.
  5. Brush tops with a little milk or egg wash (if using) for a more golden colour. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Serve warm or cold, with butter.
