Welcome to my Air Fryer Sloppy Joes Stuffed Cheese Scones recipe.
I am British so it goes without saying that I love cheese scones and have been making them for years and years. In fact it was the very first thing I learnt to cook at school and you can find my delicious cheese scones recipe here.
I remember like it was yesterday making them for the very first time at school and remembering just how delicious they tasted and how I wanted to make more and more.
I grew up in Yorkshire (that’s Northern England) and one of the main foods of choice is the scones that are often served up with a delicious cup of tea in a tearoom.
I used to go out with my Grandad for brunch and a drink to one of his favourite cafes. It was a lovely place on a cobbled street and he would often have quiche or a slice of cake while I had a cheese scone. Then in the winter months mine would be washed down with a traditional hot chocolate and it was amazing.
All these years later I still think of my Grandad (he died in 2012) when I have a lovely cheese scone and this recipe is for him. As I am sure if he was still here and lived locally he would be my chief recipe tester!

Start by making your scones. Mix together in a bowl all the seasoning, your flour and your butter. Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the grated cheese, egg and milk and combine into a dough mixture. If it is too hard and dry add a little more milk until it is a lovely soft dough.
Separate the mixture into 4 decent sized scone shapes and place in the Air Fryer. Bake for 15 minutes on 160c.
Get them out and lay on a cooling rack.
Once they’re cool enough to touch using a knife slice the top of them and remove the bulk of the centre.
Mix the spare centre with your sloppy joes and then spoon the mixture into the scones.
Place the lids back on top followed by a slice of cheese. Place back in the Air Fryer for a further 5 minutes and then serve.
You can also change the taste of the scones to fit your own taste. For example we also like to add bacon to our scone mixture for a lovely cheese and bacon base.
