Southern ham biscuits make a delicious recipe. These ham biscuits are perfect as appetizers when entertaining or for a family brunch.
Ham biscuits have graced Southern tables for generations. Every Southern bell includes these little ham biscuits in her menu for entertaining whether showers, holidays, or tailgating. This weekend, we were invited to our friends home to cheer along during the Auburn / Alabama football game. I considered taking spiced nuts, stuffed mushrooms, chicken wings, deviled eggs, or spiced caramel apple dip, but then knew ham biscuits would be the perfect party fare.
I was right. They are always a delicious part of every event where they are a part of the menu.
My family doesn’t always love the poppy seed mustard spread, so I serve it as a side spread to be added to biscuits if guests wish to use it. It’s a delicious strong spread that I’ve found best to allow guests to add rather than including on all.
Here’s how I make them.
- [Southern Buttermilk Biscuits|http://addapinch.com/cooking/2010/09/27/southern-buttermilk-biscuits/]
- 10 slices ham, sliced, cut into 2 ” pieces
- 12 slices cheddar cheese, cut into fourths
- 4 tablespoons butter, softened
- poppy seed spread (optional)
- Prepare southern buttermilk biscuits according to directions.
- Cut biscuits with 2″ to 2½” biscuit cutter.
- Split biscuits, spread with butter, place cheese slice, two to three ham pieces, topped with another cheese slice.
- Serve with optional poppy seed mustard spread.
- Note: I prefer to use Virginia or a Smithfield ham that has been baked and sliced.
