Ham and Cheese Biscuits

A tender biscuit stuffed with smoked honey ham and shredded cheese.

Ham and Cheese Biscuits

These are great breakfast or brunch biscuits served alongside some fluffy eggs or even as a base for an egg sandwich. I like to use a sweeter honey ham for these, but any good smoked ham works fine too. With the self rising flour, ham and cheese, I don't usually add any additional salt, so do keep that in mind if you're tempted to add some.

Make mini biscuits for that next party and serve with some good pepper jelly - yum y'all!

I'm interrupting the post here to remind you that this is a blog, not just a "recipe site," and yes, there is a difference! I want to first thank all of you who have supported my work over the years, but if you aren't interested in the chit chat, info, photos, tips and such in a post, as always, you'll find the complete recipe text with measurements and instructions, as well as a printable document, a little bit further down the page. Just swipe or scroll down to the bottom of the post!
Here's how to make my Ham and Cheese Biscuits.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine 2 cups of self rising flour, 3/4 cup chopped smoked honey ham and 1/2 cup of shredded cheese - I usually use Cheddar or Monterey jack, but use whatever cheese you like. Add a little chopped jalapeno for a nice punch!

Make well in center and pour in 1/3 cup of cooled melted butter or cooking oil and most of the 2/3 cup of milk, just enough milk to moisten dough. Add the remaining milk only as needed.

Use a fork to combine. Dough should be wet, but not goopy.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and sprinkle a little bit of flour on top.

Knead dough until it is smooth and no longer sticky.

Pat dough about 1/2 inch thick and cut out close together with a 2-inch biscuit cutter, gathering scraps to make the last few biscuits.

Place on a silpat or parchment covered cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 to 25 minutes.

Dig in!
