How to make Southern biscuit ham and egg bake

Print this recipe
Breakfast in the South isn’t really breakfast if it doesn’t involve biscuits. Whether its biscuits with honey butter, gravy, or a biscuits baked in a casserole along with ham, eggs, and cheese like in this easy recipe, biscuits are an essential part of southern cuisine. This is a great dish for serving a hungry crowd on a weekend morning. I’ve even been known to serve this as a delicious breakfast-for-dinner meal.
Using refrigerated biscuits, this hearty breakfast dish is easy to make. You can even make it ahead of time. Mix the ingredients up the night before if you like and store it, covered, in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake them.

Southern Ham, Egg, and Biscuit Bake
6
1 tablespoon oil
½ onion, chopped
1 cup ham, diced
8 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (like Tabasco or Crystal)
1 (16-ounce) can jumbo refrigerated biscuits
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350ºF and grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with butter.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the ham and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove the ham and onion from the skillet and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Add the biscuit pieces to the egg mixture and stir until they are well coated. Stir in the scallions and cheese and the cooked ham and onions. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for about 5 minutes before serving.
