1. Winner of the Healthy Lunch Recipe Contest

Thanks for sending in some wonderful lunch recipes.

Rachel Upton's recipe, Cheese...Urry Scones won the Healthy Lunch recipe contest.

So what is a scone?

First, scone can be pronounced two ways, "skon" or "skoan". These quick breads originated in Scotland and can be sweet or savory. They are similar to American biscuits. Try these delicious cheese scones for lunch some time.

Here is Rachel's recipe for Cheese...Urry Scones:

8 ounces (1 1/3 cups) plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
2 ounces (1/2 stick) butter
3 ounces (1/4 cup) grated cheddar cheese
1 small carton of plain yogurt
1 egg, beaten (for brushing the top)
a dash of milk

Preheat oven to 220C (425F) degrees.

Sieve flour, curry powder and baking powder together. Rub in butter (should look like fine breadcrumbs). Add grated cheese. Stir in yogurt and a dash of milk, and mix (should be soft but not sticky).

Put on floured board, roll out to 3/4 inch thick. Cut into rounds and place on greased tray. Brush with egg and sprinkle grated cheese. Bake 12 minutes.

Note: If you don't like curry you can add mustard powder instead.

Also be sure to try the other recipes, especially the two Honorable Mention recipes:

Deli Pizzandwich and Rany's Gourmet Jalapeño Bagel
