Ham & Cheese Biscuits – Fluffy drop biscuits full of cheddar cheese and diced ham. A great side dish, or use of leftover ham.
I can’t believe that Easter is almost here. It seems really early this year. This will be the first year that we are not at home, or celebrating with family. Hopefully the Easter Bunny will be able to find us in New Zealand. Who knows, maybe that means my son will get traditional New Zealand Easter treats 😉 Because you know that I had enough to pack, I wasn’t packing jelly beans as well. I think I will miss a traditional ham dinner for Easter, but I think my guys will be perfectly content eating fish and chips instead this year.
So do you do a traditional ham for Easter? What do you serve for the sides? Usually we have a ham, cheesy potatoes, asparagus and dinner rolls. Dessert always changes, sometimes we even skip dessert because there is so much candy. I came up with these ham & cheese biscuits as a super simple side for your Easter dinner, or as a great way to use up that leftover ham. I don’t know about you, but I always struggle with what to do with leftover ham. So these biscuits are perfect. Drop biscuits, especially when you take a little help from Bisquick, are ready in less than 15 minutes. Just Bisquick, milk, cheese, and ham get mixed together. Then drop on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 minutes. You can not get any easier!
Holidays can be stressful, so take the help where you can get it and make these super simple ham & cheese biscuits. On Easter Sunday just make them cheddar biscuits, and then the next morning make a batch with ham & cheese. Scramble up some eggs, and you can have a great breakfast sandwich too. Your guests will be impressed with your light and fluffy biscuits, and you can just relax and enjoy the day. Be sure to check out all sort of Bisquick Easter recipe ideas too!
