Ham and Cheese Biscuits

Janet Crow


After a holiday we always have plenty of leftovers and trying to figure out different things to do with them can be a challenge sometimes. I took what was left in the fridge and made up some ham and cheese biscuits for a quick "grab and go" breakfast. These biscuits freeze really well for reheating.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a recipe for easy drop biscuits that have a big punch of flavor. These biscuits are not only buttery they are savory too. Each bite has a bit of salt from the ham and sharpness from the cheese. We guarantee you'll have a hard time not eating these. They're very versatile and so good. Serve alongside a bowl of soup, put them out at brunch, or have them handy for a yummy snack. The one trick is to make sure you do not overcrowd the pan when baking.
