Are you a ham lover?

We are!

We tend to make a few different hams each year.


Ham & Cheese Biscuits - Bisquick, cheese & ham in a bowl


Thanksgiving, Easter and then one or two other times, just because ham is one of the few foods my daughter will eat over and over again and never gets tired of.

I also like to try out new recipes (surprise, surprise) and since ham is one of those things my picky daughter WILL eat, it ends up in the rotation a few times.

However, it’s difficult for my small family to eat an entire ham.

Most people will freeze leftovers for use later.

I though am not much for freezing leftover ham as I generally want to use it up and then try some new recipe the next time we’re in the mood.

Because of this, I like to find other dishes that I can use leftover ham in.

These Ham & Cheese Biscuits make a great on the go breakfast item or a perfect side to a lunch or dinner.

Not to mention my kids love them.

These Ham & Cheese Biscuits take only 20 minutes to whip up, store well and I suspect would even freeze well.

However if you are anything like us, there wont be any left to freeze.

We tend to eat these up in a single day when I whip up a batch and rightfully so.

These Ham & Cheese Biscuits pack well in a school lunch and taste great warm or at room temperature.

We really enjoyed them and they were the perfect way to use up those little bits of leftover ham.

They are an adaption of our Cheddar Garlic Biscuit recipe and definitely worth a try!

Total Time 20 minutes


  • 2 cups Bisquick

  • ------------------------------
  • Optional Topping (we liked it)

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


Preheat oven to 450*F

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, a baking mat or non-stick foil.

In a bowl combine Bisquick, cheese & ham. Toss to combine.

Slowly add milk and stir until all milk has been added and mixture is thick and combined.

Using a cookie scoop or a large spoon, scoop out approximately 2-3 Tablespoon mounds onto prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through and edges are just beginning to turn golden.

Remove from oven.

If doing the topping, combine melted butter and garlic powder. Spoon over biscuits while hot.

Allow to cool on racks for 3 - 5 minutes.

Do you grate or cube the cheddar

Hi Maria! I grate my cheddar. Great question.

I took this idea and made it easier, and into a lunch or dinner, with side dish, like a macaroni or potato salad, three our own poison :) Buy as many large refrigerated, generic biscuits as you need. Two to a serving. I used the buttermilk ones. On one biscuit, put the ham, cheese, and some sautéed, chopped onions. Put another biscuit on top and press all around them with a fork to seal. Bake as directed on the can, and you have a nice ham and cheese sandwich, with very little work. You could also put a dollop of honey mustard inside the biscuit when assembling. They were yummy! If you want to do the work, make your own biscuits using the recipe on the Bisquick Box.

Great idea Marie! Thanks for sharing!

I'm surprised at comments not realizing that ham and cheese go good together. I guess they have never had a ham and cheese Omelet :) Those have been around forever. These sound good and would be nice to have a batch in the freezer for quick breakfast. I will be making them. So much you can do with bisquick. Janelle, do you have recipes for "Impossible Pies". They are great!

Hello Esther..I hope you are still responding as the last comment was 1 yrs ago..anyway here goes. I dont have bisquick nor self rising flour..I have bread flour and all purpose flour...can you tell me how to adjust recipe using either one if possible?

I'm sorry but I don't have a previous comment from you. Glad you left it again. :) To convert traditional All-Purpose Flour into Self Rising Flour, simply take 1 cup of All-Purpose Flour and add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking power and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Mix well. Repeat this for each additional cup of self rising flour. Hope that helps!
