Ham biscuits are quick and easy and you get the ham right in the biscuit.  Ham Biscuits

Just add a cup of coffee, butter and your favorite jams or jellies. I love these biscuits buttered with honey. This is one of my favorite things to do with ham.  These ham biscuits are wonderful for breakfast but are great any time of the day.  If you have leftover ham try this recipe. Your family will love it.  Biscuits are so versatile and I will add almost anything to a biscuit recipe.  A Southern favorite for many years and pretty much always on a Southern table.  You might also like my recipe for Cheesy Apple Biscuits.
