    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 500°F
    2. 2
      Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine onion and butter in a skillet over medium-low heat and cook until tender but not browned, about 5 minutes; cool.
    3. 3
      In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add butter and mix with your fingers until mealy in texture. Add the onions, buttermilk, ham and cheese, stirring in with a spatula until just incorporated, but it still should be a bit loose.
    4. 4
      Scoop out the batter with a large spoon to form 12 biscuits and lightly shape them with floured hands.
    5. 5
      Arrange close together on the baking sheet for soft biscuits, or spread them apart for crisper biscuits.
    6. 6
      Brush with hot melted butter.
    7. 7
      Bake 5 minutes then reduce temperature to 450F and bake a further 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.
    8. 8
      Cool in pan for several minutes then invert onto kitchen towel.
    9. 9
      Turn right side up and serve hot.

      Made these on a weeknight which is not generally baking time for me, easily prepared and beautiful results, plus they taste fabulous!!!! I made them using a muffin tray, I did spray the tray beforehand and they turned out cleanly, I was very pleased with the results! To add a touch of the out of the ordinary, yes, we enjoyed a slice of onion with these savoury biscuits. :) Very yum, thank you Annacia, this recipe was made for International Agents of QUEST, Would You Like a Slice of Onion with That? Challenge. And yes, I would most certainly like a slice of onion with that :)

      I made this as one loaf. I would call these scones as I am Australian and so I made one scone loaf. I used snipped chives instead of onion and it was fabulous.The loaf was quite moist and delicious served with soup. As it was just like one big "biscuit' I had to extend cooking time to about 25 minutes.
