Flaky and light biscuits, smokey fried ham, buttery muenster cheese and sweet honey butter make up the recipe for these miniature Southern honey-butter ham and cheese biscuit sandwiches. Perfect for picnics, parties, and/or feeding a hungry group of people, each bite is packed with Southern goodness.
Got some cookie cutters nearby? Try stamping out a shape in the dough (like these heart shaped ones) to add an extra layer of fun. I recommend serving them with one dozen mimosas and a few of your favorite hot sauces.
Want to make them in advance? You can, but they're best made fresh day-of, but you can make them at least 24 hours in advance as long as they're kept cool in the refrigerator.
- 6 small biscuits
- 12 small slices ham (thick cut country ham)
- 6 small squares of Muenster cheese
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp honey
- Prepare biscuit dough accordingly and if desired, use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut 3 thick biscuits.
- Bake (usually about 15 minutes at high heat) and set aside to cool.
- Heat a medium sized cast iron skillet over medium heat. Roughly tear the ham into bite sized pieces and place in a heated cast iron skillet.
- Allow the ham to fry in its own fat until the pieces begin to caramelize and brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Once the biscuits have cooled, gently take a knife and slice them in half to fill them. On each piece, gently slather on some honey butter (mix the 2 tbsp of butter with 1 tbsp of honey) - more or less depending on your own personal taste.
- Next, add a few pieces of ham and a slice of cheese to each biscuit sandwich. Once they're built, take toothpick and gently push it through the middle of each sandwich - this will help keep them together while transporting.
