This easy recipe for country ham biscuits will have you rethinking your usual ham sandwich! And a great use for leftover ham – just turn it into lunch!
Remember those ham souffles from the other day? Well, as luck would have it, I still had just enough leftover ham from that little escapade to make these scrumptious little ham biscuits.
Here’s how to make country ham biscuits!
They are easy as easy can be — all you need is some leftover sliced ham, some really, really, really good mustard, and about a half hour to make these rustic little biscuits.
Now the one thing you DO have to make sure of is that you use self-rising flour. If you don’t have any on hand never fear, you can make your own in a snap. But make sure you use it, so your biscuits come out with a nice little rise to them and not like cute little bricks.
All you do is mix up that flour with some butter and some buttermilk (and if you have leftover buttermilk make sure you make some of THIS!). Add in some extra flour if your dough is too sticky.
Roll it out to a nice rectangle, cut it into biscuit size pieces and pop it in the oven for about 15 minutes or so.
Let them cool for about 5 minutes so they are easier to cut open — slice them in half, slather them with that nice mustard, layer on as much ham as you want and voila! Perfect, quick, delicious lunch or light dinner.Print
