Are you a ham lover?

We are!

We tend to make a few different hams each year.



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!

Yield: 14 servings

Ham & Cheese Biscuits

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup milk, any percent
  • 1/4 cup diced ham
  • ------------------------------
  • Optional Topping (we liked it)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 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.

  1. could you please leave a Nutrion List of carbs, protein etc. i have to watch my intake so including this with every receipe would be great, as other websites do this

    • Hi Darlene! There are quite a few other websites that do break all their recipes down. This is just not something I’m willing to do at this time. I just don’t have the time with a newborn at home and small children. Perhaps in the future when I can dedicate more time. However I’ve had friends tell me that there are some fantastic apps and even google that can break this all down for you if you just type in the ingredients. I’d look into that and then you’ll be able to convert and track all the recipes you want! Sorry I can’t be of more help at this time!
