If you have leftover ham in your refrigerator and are looking for a creative way to use it up, these ham and cheese biscuits we made the other night are delicious. I’ve made them before with chopped onions, diced tomatoes, chives, corn, you name it, anything goes.

Another great recipe for leftover ham is Rustic Pea Soup. It’s our favorite.

Do you make anything special with YOUR leftover ham?  I’d love to find a few more recipes.

ham and cheese biscuits recipe


Preheat an oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. In a bowl, stir together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, syrup, and cream. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until a sticky dough forms. Add chopped ham and cheese and mix until combined

Using a 3 Tbs cookie scoop {or a 1/3 cup measuring cup} scoop dough on to a parchment lined baking sheet or silpat.

Bake until the scones are  bit crusty and have a hint of golden brown on the top {about 12 minutes}. Serve immediately with butter.

Makes 12 biscuits.

      Never in a million years would I have thought you could make a chopped ham sandwich. Thanks for posting this. I’m going to give it a try.

    I like to make a breakfast casserole with leftover ham.
    It’s really simple with frozen hashbrowns, eggs, ham, and milk.
    Also, I always make two pans of it and freeze some in single serving dishes for quick breakfasts.

    Just made these biscuits for breakfast today with leftovers from our New year’s eve ham. I made them a bit bigger than the picture, then split them and filled with scrambled eggs – made a DELICIOUS breakfast sandwich – thanks for the recipe!

    Wow. Substituted two finely diced apples for the cheese and cooked for 15 minutes. Aesthetically challenged but delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
