These delicious biscuits are the perfect pairing with sliced ham for brunch!
One of my favorite things to make when I am having company over is glazed ham. It’s delicious, super easy, and is generally a crowd pleaser.
What to do with the leftovers can sometimes pose a bit of a dilemma. No one wants to eat plain ole ham sandwiches for days on end. That’s where these biscuits come in.
First, I love biscuits of all kinds. Slap something on a biscuit and I’m most likely going to be a fan. From buttermilk biscuits, to cathead biscuits, to sweet potato biscuits… I love them all.
These biscuits are dense and a slightly drier biscuit than a traditional breakfast biscuit – which makes them perfect for ham!
I used to be afraid of making my own bread and bread products, but now that I’ve decided to just dive in, I have been pleasantly surprised at how easy they can be. If you’re on the fence about trying them yourself, this would be a great first step. They are easy! I promise!
First, combine all your dry ingredients into a bowl.
Then, cut in your butter until crumbly. You can use a pastry cutter for this or a fork if you don’t have one.
Add your wet ingredients and mix it all together until the dough comes together.
You will see little bits of butter throughout… this is good! It helps your biscuits be flaky and tasty!
Roll out your dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. These biscuits are on the small side, and don’t rise a huge amount. I use a glass to cut the biscuits.
Bake these at 400 degrees for about 15 mins or until they are golden brown. Then slap some ham on these beauties and enjoy!

- I like to add a little honey or sugar water mixture to the tops of these just after removing from the oven.
