These low-carb and protein-packed ham and cheese scones are perfect for a special brunch; not only are they easy to make, but they seem to be easier on my blood sugar (and they’re gluten-free). They’re also loaded with nutrients — hello, two cups of cauliflower! They pair perfectly with a bowl of soup, too, so save your leftovers, if you have any!
