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


  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 2 1⁄2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 4 Tbs. cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces

  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

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.

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

  7. These look delish!

    The way we MOST use leftover ham is making BBQ Ham in a skillet with the leftover ham pieces, bbq sauce and a little water, cooked until the whole thing cooks down and carmelizes. We like ham that way almost better than the ham baked the regular way. It’s a super treat.
