Ham Biscuits


With plenty of ham leftover from Thanksgiving, it was time to have Ham Biscuits. My family and my brother’s family try to get together on most Sunday nights to catch up and let the cousins play together. Ham Biscuits proved to be a perfect meal for our gathering. I made a big pan of biscuits, placed the ham on a platter, and placed out various toppings such as red plum jam, honey butter, and mustard. Everyone made their own biscuit according to their likings and with the leftover biscuits we mopped up more of that yummy honey butter.

Ham Biscuits are great companions to soup, tailgating, and Sunday Night Suppers. Try some when you have leftover ham, it’s the Southern thing to do.

    wowza, those biscuits are perfection. the ham would be an afterthought–i'd probably inhale three or four biscuits before i realized the ham was supposed to go in the middle. 🙂

    Wow, I never used biscuits in making ham sandwiches like this. So this is a popular way for the South to make sandwiches like this?

    Rate This Recipe- Ham biscuits are popular here in the South and we also make ham biscuits using sweet potato biscuits too.

    I sure wish! I had some leftover ham. One of my brothers' hosted Thanksgiving so there was absolutely NO ham (my family's fave) and no leftovers for that matter. My SIL needs hostessing help.

    You are famous…plus it's its own "thing" on the website–scrubsmag.com. And…the biscuits look great. I wish I were allowed to make ham instead of turkey!

    Ham biscuits are one of my favorites and ham biscuits made with sweet potatoes are great for appetizers if you make them small. Great for this time of year. By the way your Thanksgiving dinner rocked!

    Whoa, that looks *really* good. Me thinks we will need to do this soon since this is one of our "good" Christmases (i.e. all kids home, no one deployed, sweet!). What did you serve with this? What is in the bowl next to the ham??
