Ham Cheddar and Chive Biscuits
It's been a while since I shared a savory biscuit recipe so today, I am spilling the tea on how to make these ham cheddar and chive biscuits. I grew eating country ham biscuits as a kid and this recipe is a bit of a twist on one of my childhood favorites. The addition of the fresh chive adds such a depth of flavor to the biscuits. I used a piece smoked ham that I got from the deli section of the grocery store. I asked them to cut me an extra thick piece. I decided to brown my ham a bit to add to more flavor to my biscuits.
This recipe was a 10 out 10. You can make these ahead of time and freeze them for a quick breakfast. You will only need to add an egg in the middle if you want to make a ham, egg and cheese biscuit. To grab Miss Lena's Buttermilk Biscuit mix, head to www.spillingthesweetea.com/shop to order.
Ingredients for Ham Cheddar and Chive Biscuits
1 package of Miss Lena's Buttermilk Biscuit Mix
1 stick of frozen butter, grated
1 cup of finely shredded Mexican blend cheese
1 ham steak, cubed
1-2 tablespoons of fresh chives, chopped
1 cup of very cold buttermilk (add more if needed until dough forms)
Directions to Make Ham Cheddar and Chive Biscuits
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a skillet, brown cubed ham and set aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, add Miss Lena's Buttermilk biscuit mix, grated butter, cheese, chives, and cubed ham and mix well until combined.
Make a well in the middle of the bowl and add buttermilk.
Fold biscuit mix and buttermilk together until a dough is formed.
On a floured surface, roll out biscuit dough with a floured rolling pin.
Fold dough three times and then roll out the dough again. Repeat this step two more times for fluffy and tall biscuits.
Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuit rounds and place into a greased cast iron skillet.
Brush on an egg wash and then top with a bit of shredded cheese.
Bake biscuits for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Once out the oven, brush on melted butter. Enjoy!
