Cheesy garlic ham biscuits are delicious!

There must be a thousand or more ways to make biscuits and I would probably like them all! I love biscuits. A good Southern buttermilk biscuit with gravy just can’t be beat in my book.  These ham biscuits are a great way to use up ham and so good for breakfast with coffee or just as a snack.

Cheesy Garlic Ham Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 stick butter or margarine, cut in pieces

1 1/2 cups ham, cooked and chopped

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or can use cheese of your choice. (I use several different cheeses blended sometimes)

1 1/4 cups evaporated milk

Mix flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder with a whisk.  Cut the butter pieces into the flour mixture until looks like coarse crumbs.  Add ham, cheese and milk.  Mix with spoon and turn out onto floured board.  I don’t roll this out. I just pat the dough out with my hands to desired thickness.  I used a small cookie cutter, too, instead of a regular biscuit cutter.  Baked on a sprayed cookie sheet in a preheated 425 degree oven until brown on top or 15 to 20 minutes.   Makes about 2 1/2 dozen small biscuits.  Serve with honey, preserves, molasses, etc.
