Do Biscuits with Cheese and Ham Need to be Refrigerated?

Yes, since these easy drop biscuits contain cheese and ham, it’s best to store them in the refrigerator. 

Keeping them chilled ensures they stay fresh and safe to eat.

I know you can keep other biscuits on the counter but you want to be careful when you’ve got meat and dairy.

Can You Make Ham and Cheese Biscuits Ahead of Time?

You can absolutely make these delicious biscuits ahead of time! 

You can prepare them up to a day before you need them and reheat them when needed. 

They’re a lifesaver for busy mornings or when you need a quick and satisfying snack!

Not to mention for parties! I know how busy those can be and biscuits do not need to be prepared right then!

How to Store Leftover Ham and Cheese Biscuits

To keep your leftover biscuits fresh, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 

They’ll last for about 3-5 days. 

For a quick snack, just reheat them in the microwave or oven until warm.

Careful if you use the microwave! It makes them really hot!

And if you use the oven, you want them warmed through. Don’t bake them over again. Just warm.

Can You Freeze Ham and Cheese Biscuits?

Yes, you can freeze this cheese biscuit recipe! 

Wrap them individually in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. 

They can be frozen for up to 3 months. 

When you’re ready to enjoy them, thaw at room temperature or in the refrigerator, then reheat.

Make sure you let them cool completely to room temperature before transferring. That’ll keep them from sweating in the bag.

Also be sure to write the name and date on them so you don’t lose them in your freezer.

And consider pairing them with healthier sides like salads or steamed veggies if you’re worried about it!
