Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 500°F
  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. 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. Scoop out the batter with a large spoon to form 12 biscuits and lightly shape them with floured hands.
  5. Arrange close together on the baking sheet for soft biscuits, or spread them apart for crisper biscuits.
  6. Brush with hot melted butter.
  7. Bake 5 minutes then reduce temperature to 450F and bake a further 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.
  8. Cool in pan for several minutes then invert onto kitchen towel.
  9. Turn right side up and serve hot.

Excellent !! Reminds me of a ham and cheese biscuit my husband & I use to buy from a little coffee shop in B.C. and I've been forever looking for a recipe as good as and YES! I think this is it !! <br/> But very important I think to use parchment paper - I made these using a mini loaf pan - perfect size for heading out the door with in the morning! Only issue is where, and I think it's because the oven is so hot for cooking, is that my mini loaf pan's teflon melted a bit and I ended up scrapping the little pieces off the biscuit so parchment is a definite must !<br/> Will totally add this to my list of items to keep on hand for company and for busy mornings ! Thank you for this recipe!

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 :)
