Country Ham Stuffed Biscuits

Ok - so I have re-invented the country ham biscuit.  Instead of the traditional way of slicing the biscuit in half, & placing a slice of ham inside - I have diced the country ham up & baked it inside of the biscuit!

Yes - I said INSIDE of that biscuit.  Mercy, is it good!

Country Ham Stuffed Biscuits



Add the diced country ham to the biscuit dough at the same time as you add the buttermilk.  Stir with a wooden spoon.  

Dump the dough on a flat surface & form into a rectangle with your hand, just like you do in the recipe for Mama's Biscuits.  Cut into 8 or 10 squares using a pizza cutter.  If you want to have round biscuits, spin them with both hands on a flat surface to give them a circular appearance.

Place in a cast iron skillet if available - if not, use a casserole dish or cake pan.  Drizzle about 3 tablespoons of melted butter onto the uncooked biscuits.

Cook in an oven preheated to 500 degrees for 12-15 minutes.  Brush the tops with a few more tablespoons of melted butter.
