Ham and Cheese Biscuits are perfect for breakfast or lunch! How often does that happen? I originally made these biscuits for breakfast and they were perfect along with a couple of eggs. But imagine them alongside a bowl of soup! Or maybe into a mini sandwich – filled with slices of deli ham and cheddar cheese! A ham and cheese sandwich on a ham and cheese biscuit! 

I think these would also be delicious for a picnic lunch along with fresh fruit, chunks of cheese and strawberry jam!

Biscuits baked with bits of ham and shredded cheddar cheese. These ham and cheese biscuits are prefect for breakfast or lunch!

As much as I love baking, I am often a lazy biscuit baker. I don’t know why, but when I made these Buttermilk Biscuits, I was looking for the ultimate shortcut.  And then with these ham and cheese biscuits, again I was looking for a shortcut.

I don’t usually mind rolling out dough, but for some reason I often look for another option when making biscuits. No rolling needed with these biscuits! They are a drop biscuit. The dough is just a bit stickier than a normal biscuit and instead of rolling out the dough, you use an scooper and just plop the dough right onto a baking sheet! Easy Peasy!!!

Ham and cheese biscuits fresh from the oven.

These biscuits would be equally as delicious with Swiss cheese, or maybe even a Pepper Jack! Mix it up any way you’d like.

    This looks perfect, Kathy! Love that they have lots of ham and cheese. I can only imagine how scrumptious they are straight outta the oven! Nice smear of butter and I’m set 😉

    I love a good drop biscuit! I don’t mind rolling out dough and doing the whole nine yards thing…but drop biscuits are just a thing of beauty. The way the little bits get nice and crispy on top? Oh yeah! I love the ham and cheese version here, Kathy! And I must admit that I’m still laughing at the ‘A ham and cheese sandwich on a ham and cheese biscuit!’ comment. You’re right though…those would be delicious! 🙂
