Biscuit Ham Bites

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by akcooker

I started making these when I was first married, over 30 years ago. They are great appetizers for football or sporting event parties with many hungry people. I also make these for a quick dinner to serve with canned tomato soup.

A very nice way to use the remainder of the holiday ham and some Emmenthaler cheese. I unfortunately had forgotten to buy biscuits, and used crescent rolls instead. They turned out great. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 slices ham (very thin slices)
  • 6 ounces swiss cheese (10 1/2-inch cubes)
  • 1 (6 ounce) package refrigerated biscuits


  1. Wrap each cube of cheese with one slice of ham.
  2. Flatten a biscuit with palm of hand and wrap around the cheese and ham to enclose totally in a ball of dough.
  3. Press edges of dough together securely and place seam side down on lightly greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until brown.
  5. These can be made ahead and refrigerated until ready to bake, but baking time to should be increased for a couple of minutes, and they may need to be covered with foil to keep from excessive browning.
  6. (You can also use smoked turkey instead of the ham, or vary the type of cheese.).
