Recipe by Annacia
READY IN: 35mins




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