Country Ham & Cheese Biscuits


2 cups self rising flour

1/4 cup lard (or shortening)

1 cup finely chopped country ham

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup milk or buttermilk

2 1/2 tsp butter, melted

1 cup sour cream


1. Measure flour into large mixing bowl. Cut in lard until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

2. Add ham, cheese, milk, and sour cream; mix until well blended.

3. Knead gently  on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut biscuits.

4. Bake on baking sheet at 450° for 8-10 minutes.

5. Brush tops with melted butter.


These are delicious and perfect for breakfast!

I also freeze these! To freeze, I don’t brush with butter and I freeze them in packs of 2. When we’re ready to eat them, I defrost for approximately 2 minutes and then warm for 1 minute! Makes a wonderful, convenient home cooked breakfast biscuit!
