Need a quick but yummy and filling breakfast or snack? These ham and cheese biscuits are just the thing!

Eat these ham and cheese biscuits fresh or prep them ahead of time

They’re super easy to whip up and enjoy fresh or you can make them ahead and reheat them for a quick breakfast on the go.

Super easy to make thanks to Bisquick

There’s nothing quite like fresh from the oven biscuits but in our house, we don’t have a lot of time to fuss with food that involves a lot of prep. We typically have Bisquick on hand to save on time. However, if you don’t have any on hand or would prefer to make your own biscuit mix, check out this recipe for homemade biscuit mix.

Not a fan of Cajun seasoning?

That’s okay, I forgive you. 😉 If you prefer a simpler flavor, you can leave out the seasoning all together. Or if you’re just looking for a different flavor, more similar to the famous Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuits, you can replace the cajun seasoning (just use half the amount) of Old Bay.

Make these in a muffin tin or on a baking sheet

You can make these muffin shaped or bake them on a flat, lined baking sheet.  They can get a little crumbly, so I like using a muffin tin and if I have some, I’ll use liners.

Could you call these “dinner”

I mean… I did eat them for dinner with a side salad. It felt balanced. 🙂 These really work well for literally any meal. I’ve made them for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. And also snacked on them. So, enjoy them however you want!

Yield: 12 biscuits


  • 1 cup buttermilk biscuit mix
  • cup cold milk
  • ½ cup diced ham
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • ½ tsp Cajun seasoning
  • ¼ cup butter softened
  • 2 green onions, chopped (optional)

Butter Glaze

  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp dried parsley


  • In a large bowl, stir together biscuit mix, milk, ham, 1/3 cup of the cheese (reserve rest for topping), Cajun seasoning and butter together just until a thick dough forms. Don't over mix dough. Fold in green onions (optional).
  • Using an cookie scoop, drop biscuit dough onto a non-stick or lined baking sheet. Use remaining cheese to sprinkle a little on top of each biscuit then bake at 425˚ for 10 minutes or until a fork poked through the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove baking sheet from oven and while biscuits are still warm, combine garlic and onion powder and parsley with melted butter. Brush onto the tops of the biscuits.


To melt butter for the glaze: Place butter in a bowl or ramekin cup and cover with a paper towel. Microwave to 30 seconds.
