1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 500°F

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2
Combine onion and butter in a skillet over medium-low heat and cook until tender but not browned, about 5 minutes; cool.
3
In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add butter and mix with your fingers until mealy in texture.

Add the onions, buttermilk, ham and cheese, stirring in with a spatula until just incorporated, but it still should be a bit loose.
4
Scoop out the batter with a large spoon to form 12 biscuits and lightly shape them with floured hands.
5
Arrange close together on the baking sheet for soft biscuits, or spread them apart for crisper biscuits.
6
Brush with hot melted butter.

Bake 5 minutes then reduce temperature to 450F and bake a further 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.
8
Cool in pan for several minutes then invert onto kitchen towel.
