Old Dominion Ham Biscuits

Debby Nelson


One of the women I worked with years ago made these for a bridal shower for another co-worker. I thought they were the best ham biscuits I had ever had but she would not give out the recipe. I came across a cookbook that had the recipe and bought it because this was in it. The recipe calls for grated onion but I have made them with a shake or 2 of onion powder because I knew people would be at the gathering that did not like real onion.
