Classic flaky biscuits are always welcome on any brunch table, but studding them with salty ham and pockets of gooey cheese makes them a guaranteed showstopper – as well as a perfect on-the-go breakfast or hearty snack. The recipe below will win you fans. It makes classic flaky biscuits – loaded with ham and cheese – that would do any Southern granny proud.
I like to serve these biscuits as an accompaniment to scrambled eggs or stuffed with egg as a breakfast sandwich. Swipe melted butter or a bit of cream over the biscuit tops just before baking for an extra-appetizing sheen. Serve them hot out of the oven or let them cool to room temperature.
