Quick drop biscuits with ham and cheese baked right inside!
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 I originally made these biscuits for breakfast and they were perfect along with a couple of eggs.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!
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!!!
These biscuits would be equally as delicious with Swiss cheese, or maybe even a Pepper Jack! Mix it up any way you’d like.
